This frozen treat features the sweet-tart flavor of a Key lime pie--but with a fraction of the calories. It's festive scooped into hollowed-out lime or lemon halves; freeze until ready to serve. Source: EatingWell Magazine, Summer 2002

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine sugar, lime zest and lime juice in a heatproof bowl. Add boiling water and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour or overnight.

  • Add yogurt to the lime mixture and whisk until smooth. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. (Alternatively, freeze mixture in a shallow metal pan until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth.)

  • Serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and let harden in the freezer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Serve in chilled dishes.


Make Ahead Tip: The ice will keep, covered, in the freezer for up to 2 days. Let soften in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour before serving.

I cut chunks 1" to 1 1/2" square processing 1/2 recipe at a time. Pulse 12-20 times then run 12-20 seconds to create a smooth mix. The ice stayed partially frozen and was not difficult to handle. My double recipe made about 8 cups. Read More
