    Really simple recipe, used 8 limes in total (6/7 for juice 1 for decoration). Tastes great  -  12 May 2014


    Awesome! Will no doubt make it again but quite big for a little household. Had to share it with the extended family and of course they loved it too.  -  25 Oct 2017


    Sadly too sweet for me. I felt the limes were suffocated by the condensed milk. Will try a lighter recipe next time. It was very easy though and a tip to squeeze max juice from limes is to microwave them till warm (approx 1 min for a few) .  -  23 Sep 2017
