Sprinkle gelatin over water in small bowl, stir to dissolve. Cool slightly. Pour evaporated milk into meduim mixer bowl. Add gelatin and stir. Place bowl in freezer for 30-40 minutes or until ice crystals form around edge of bowl.

Beat cream cheese in medium bowl on high until light and fluffy. Add marshmallow cream and beat until light and fluffy.

Take chilled evaporated milk from freezer, beat on high for 1-2 minutes or until soft peaks form. Slowly add powdered sugar and continue beating for an additional minute. Add beaten cream cheese mixture to whipped milk, beat until just blended. Stir in lime juice and lime zest, refridgerate at least one hour.
