    This is delicious! I couldn't locate Key Limes or Key Lime Juice. Regular fresh limes worked fine. It's from Bon Appetite.

      This is truly outstanding! I must first say, that this is not the lime sorbet I was looking for, and I am not entirely sure that I would classify this recipe as "sorbet" at all. But I will say, that the flavor of this recipe is extremely outstanding! The taste is truly that of a frozen version of key lime pie : ) I made this with bottled lime juice in my ice cream machine and allowed to sit in my freezer to freeze for a few hours before tasting. There is not question that I will make this recipe again. It is wonderful! I served a scoop of this with Derf's Orange Sponge Cake for one terrific dessert! Thank you, Kathy, for sharing this recipe!

      This was quite nice but a bit too sweet for my taste. I used bottled Key lime juice that seemed to have a slight bitterness to it. Next time I will use 1/3 sugar and fresh lime and see if that makes a difference. This makes a refreshing summer desert.

      I used half key lime juice and half regular lime juice. It was smooth and sweet and verrrry limey. I will probably do less key lime next time but we sure did enjoy this recipe.
