What is Brazilian lemonade like?
Brazilian lemonade, or more accurately limeade, is crafted with fresh limes, evident from its vibrant green hue. In Portuguese, we name it “limonada” due to “limão” meaning lime. This versatile lime drink offers various versions, featuring distinct juicing and sweetening techniques. Create limonada with freshly squeezed lime juice or blend whole limes, including the skin, for a unique twist. Sweeten the concoction with sugar, condensed milk, or a delightful fusion of both. A refreshingly simple beverage with endless, enjoyable variations.
Quench your thirst with Brazilian lemonade—a refreshing, quick fix for a scorching summer day! Prepared in under 5 minutes with only 2 ingredients, simply blend fresh limes, water, and condensed milk. Strain the mixture over a pitcher filled with ice, and voilà! Your summer cool-down is served.
How to make Brazilian lemonade
- 5 lemons
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 4 cups water
1 Slice 4 limes into 8 parts each; add to a blender.
2 Combine condensed milk and water in the blender with limes; blend for no more than 15 seconds (over-blending results in increased bitterness).
3 Strain the juice from the blender into a pitcher filled with ice, using a fine mesh strainer.
4 Slice the remaining lime in half and squeeze into the pitcher for an extra burst of lime flavor.
5 Stir and serve immediately for a refreshing experience!
- Adjust sweetness by adding more condensed milk or a hint of sugar to tailor your limeade to your taste.
- If the lime flavor is intense, consider adding a bit more water. Keep in mind that ice will melt, diluting the mixture over time. Customize to perfection!
