Recipe courtesy of Canyon Ranch.


  • 2 medium limes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
  • Garnish: lime wedges, lime peel, kiwi fruit slices


Peel limes with a sharp paring knife or a vegetable peeler, being careful not to cut into the white pith. Combine lime peel and water to cover in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Juice limes, discarding membrane and pith. Process lime juice, peel, sugar, eggs, and milk 5 minutes in a blender, stopping to scrape down sides. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into six (4-ounce) ovenproof containers. Place in a large baking pan. Add hot water to pan to depth of 1 inch.

Bake at 275 degrees F until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Garnish if desired.
