Variations to Suit Your Tastes
One of the best aspects of the Homemade Citrus Swirl is its versatility. You can easily customize the recipe to suit your personal preferences or experiment with different flavor combinations. Here are a few variations to consider:

Swap out the lemon juice with lime juice for a zesty lime twist on the classic citrus swirl. The tartness of lime adds a unique and refreshing twist to this delightful dessert.
2. Berry Burst:
If you are a fan of berry flavors, add a handful of mixed berries, such as raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries, to the citrus mixture before freezing. The burst of berry goodness will take your citrus swirl to new heights.
3. Tropical Paradise:
For a taste of the tropics, incorporate some pineapple juice and shredded coconut into the recipe. This tropical twist will transport your taste buds to a sunny paradise.
