You don't need an ice cream maker to churn out this pretty light green refresher from Carolyn Hannay of Antioch, Tennessee. The mild lime flavor and frosty consistency make it a perfect summertime treat.


  • 1 package (3 ounces) lime gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 cups 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin powder in boiling water. Add the milk, sugar and lemon juice; stir until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Pour into a freezer container; freeze for 4 hours or until frozen. Remove from the freezer and let stand for 10 minutes or until slightly softened. In a large bowl, beat until light and fluffy. Refreeze for at least 1 hour.
