You know those people who always pick around the lime-flavored candies and skip the green ice pops? No, we don’t either—we love the tart, floral flavor of lime (and we’d take it over chocolate any day). Whether it’s the star ingredient in a silky key lime pie or the zingy bite at the end of a bowl of sorbet, we want to devour it, stat. For our fellow citrus lovers, here are 30 lime desserts to get your fix.
