Over 30 Limes Desserts & Drinks

Like all citrus fruits, limes are great in sweet treats - their zesty, acidic flavour can add a great balance to sweet notes, making desserts taste lighter and more refreshing.

We've got over 30 sweet lime recipes to share today.  There's lots of different takes on key lime pie and key lime cheesecake but there's also some more unusual ideas like pairing lime and gingerbread, lime brioche buns, eclairs, pavlovas and much more.

And you can top it all off with some delicious lime bevvies to toast this citrus gem. Enjoy!
