Very tasty! I was wondering if it would be more like frozen yogurt or sorbet, but it's like neither - it is an ice (like lemon ice, but with lime). Use the best limes you can find, it really makes a difference. I used fresh juice from limes from our tree, and a only three fourths of the sugar, so it wouldn't be too sweet for us. Yummy.
This was amazing! I couldn't find key lime juice, so I juiced key limes myself. This took quite a while....lol. I followed the recipe and it came out sooooooooo good! Highly recommedn this recipe. Thanks, Barb!
Wow! This was so yummy and easy to make too! I love the yogurt in it, gives it a nice creaminess! Thank you BarbF!
