Yoghurt Lime Sorbet

Living in Indonesia means year round tropical weather, which translates to high appreciation for all things cold and sweet and refreshing. Pretty much what this yoghurt lime sorbet is all about, actually. ♥

I don’t own an ice cream machine, so I am not sure what will happen if you actually do use one to make this, perhaps a creamier result? If you are making this with an ice cream machine, promise you will report your result, okay. My yoghurt lime sorbet tastes great even without the machine, and the texture is like the marriage between frozen yoghurt and ice slurry, pretty awesome if you ask me. :)
