Key Lime Ice

Key Lime Ice

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.


1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
1/3 cup bottled Key-lime juice or fresh lime juice
21/2 cups boiling water
1 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt

  1. 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.

  2. 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.)

  3. Serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and let harden in the freezer for 1 to 11/2 hours. Serve in chilled dishes
