i tried this out and it was an absolute winner and so easy to make, i made it with lower fat sweented condensed milk, which made it slightly less fatty and worked just as well! i also tried putting the juice of one lemon and it made it really zesty and fresh!

Gorgeous pudding and definitely worth squeezing all those limes - tho next time I'll try slightly healthier substitions such as Elmlea as the pud is so rich it gave us palpitations!

This recipe is gorgeous!!I made the base using half digestives and half ginger biscuits (to try and keep everyone happy!!) and instead of double cream I used Elmlea(to cater for the slightly sensitive stomachs in the family!!)-it was a real hit and will be made on a regular basis.

Crushed ginger biscuits are much nicer than digestives and a little bit of dark chocolate melted and drizzled across the top. Reminds me of those chocolate lime sweets my nanna used to give us as children x
