Brazilian Lemonade

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. 🙂

  1. The answer is very simple. What we call limes… they call lemons. I had 2 brazillian exchange students and they both said the green fruit is called limon.

  2. No matter what variety (yellow or green, etc), the Portuguese word for a lime or a lemon is “limão”. Limonada is a drink made with the juice of a limão.
