Here is something that I don’t understand about this recipe. It is called Brazilian Lemonade and it is made with limes. That makes no sense to me. I even tried to google it and the people that made this recipe didn’t seem to understand it either. When I found this recipe, I loved how it had simple ingredients. But my favorite ingredient is sweetened condensed milk. Remember how I said I could totally drink that stuff? Well I was partially joking, partially not. It is just so good! I would just feel so much better drinking it in a drink than straight from the can.
The ingredients are simple. It takes just a few minutes to blend the ingredients together and you have a perfect, refreshing, summer lemonade…. or limeade. I hope someday I will find the answer to this!
- 3 fresh limes, quartered
- ⅓ cup sweetened condensed milk
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 4 cups cold water
- Pulse limes, sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and as much water as you can until everything is combined.
- Pour the liquid through a strainer to remove the chunks of limes. Pour the remaining water (do not exceed the 4 cups) through the strainer to remove any sugar or pulp that was left behind.
- Stir and serve immediately over crushed ice. Makes a little over 1 quart.
