I LOVE limeade. And, lately, with swearing off sodas altogether (I’ve been on a very rare occasional soda diet for years), I’ve been looking for something exciting to drink when I don’t feel like water.
I’ve made a lot of fruit sodas like apple juice and club soda. But when I came across a simple limeade recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. The girls are sure to love it, too. They love fresh fruit juice, even when it’s super tart. Such great, adventurous kids.
Homemade Fresh Limeade
2 limes, quartered
1 1/2 cups water
1-2 cups sucanat (to taste)
Water and ice to fill remainder of 2 quart pitcher
Blend limes and push through a strainer into a pitcher. Mix with remaining ingredients and serve.
Wow! This is a fantastic and refreshing drink. And it’s also great spiked with a little rum or tequila! Delicious.
If you love this, you should also try this all-natural pink lemonade.
