  • 250 mililiters lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 250 grams sugar
  • 250 mililiters whipping cream or non-dairy whipped topping


  1. Dissolve sugar in lime juice over medium heat. Do not allow to boil.
  2. Cool sugar syrup in refrigerator until cold, 3-5 hours.
  3. Partially whip the cream until volume increases slightly.
  4. Drizzle sugar syrup into cream until completely incorporated.
  5. Freezer method: Place in airtight container in the freezer. Shake or stir every fifteen minutes for the first hour. Freeze until thickened.
  6. Ice Cream Maker Method: Pour into ice cream maker. Follow directions for gelato, or stir until soft-serve consistency, then chill one hour.

Note: Since Israeli non-dairy whipped toppings come in 212ml packages, you can use 38ml of water or soy milk to make up the difference.
