  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. (1/2 stick) cold, unsalted butter

  • 1 container (17 ounces) plain, fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar , plus more to taste

                                                                            1 lime , cut into wedges
To make curd: In a small, nonreactive saucepan, whisk egg yolks, lime juice, and sugar. Set over medium heat, and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in butter 1 Tbsp. at a time. Transfer to a bowl, press plastic wrap onto surface of the curd, and cool completely in refrigerator.
