Slowly whisk in the remaining cream mixture. Return the pudding to the saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 7 minutes.

Scrape the pudding into a medium bowl and whisk in the lemon zest and lemon juice. Press a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding and let cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours.
