  • 1 lime
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  • With a vegetable peeler, remove the lime zest (the colored portion of the peel) in long strips. Squeeze the lime to get 2 teaspoons of juice.
  • In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/2 cup of the milk.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1-1/2 cups milk, 2/3 cup of the sugar, the lime zest and salt. Heat over low until gentle bubbles come to the surface.
  • Remove from the heat, cover and let steep for 10 minutes (this infuses the milk with lime flavor).
  • Return the milk to low heat, stir in the softened gelatin mixture and stir until the gelatin has dissolved, about 1 minute.
  • Remove from the heat. Strain into a bowl and discard the lime zest.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, then stir in the yogurt.
  • Pour the mixture into six 8-ounce ramekins, custard cups or small bowls.
  • Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, the water and ginger.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer over low heat and cook until the blueberries soften and the mixture is slightly saucy, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the reserved lime juice.
  • To serve, invert the puddings onto serving plates. Spoon the blueberry mixture alongside.
