Luscious with lime juice, this frozen treat is so lovely and light that it melts all resistance to dessert—even after hearty holiday meals! Thanks to Pewaukee, Wisconsin’s Pam Peirce for sharing a real winner.

"Made this for St. Patricks Day dessert. After a heavy meal it was a nice, light, sweet, tart, cold, creamy burst of flavor. My kids want to try it with orange juice and orange rind, my husband wants to try it with lemon, all agreed it will be great on a hot summer night, lime, lemon, or orange."
