A light dessert to accompany any dinner on a summer evening. It has just the right taste, texture & sweetness to "cleanse the palate", without being filling... Best of all, preparation couldn't be easier! I mix the ingredients together (less than 5 minutes of preparation time) & place them in the fridge until dinner is ready. Just before we sit down to eat, I pour the mixture into my ice cream maker. By the time dinner is finished & everyone has had a chance for their meal to settle, dessert is ready!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 32 ounces of stoneyfield's whole milk french vanilla yogurt (don't substitute with lowfat or fat-free... it won't thicken)
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk (you can use fat-free, if preferred)
  • 12 cup key lime juice (usually sold by the reconstituted lemon juice)
  • lime zest (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix ingredients together & refrigerate until ready to use. I usually do this in the morning to give the mixture time to chill before I place it in the ice cream maker & to give myself one less thing to prepare at dinner time, but this is NOT necessary.
  2. Pour into ice cream maker & follow per instructions. I usually let mine run about 1-1/2 hours to give it the consistency of soft serve ice cream.
  3. Any remainder can be placed in an air tight container in the freezer.
  4. When ready, remove from freezer & let soften a few minutes.
Most Helpful

This makes very good, smooth ice cream. I did not use the brand of yogurt mentioned, but did use a full-fat plain European style yogurt. It seemed fine. I used fresh lime juice (not certain if they were key limes or not - round limes from Mexico), and added the zest of one lime. I think the added zest is necessary. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
