Easy Limeade Recipe
4 juicy limes
1 cup sugar
6 cold cups water
Wash limes. Cut off the ends of each lime and then slice each lime into fourths (be sure to leave the the peel on – you’ll be using the entire lime!).
Mix cold water with sugar.
Put half of the limes into a blender with half of the sugar water mixture. Pulse 3-5 times. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer and do your best to squeeze all of the liquid out. Discard pulp. Put the strained liquid back into the blender and add ice. Pulse a few more times until the ice is in smaller, drinkable chunks. Serve immediately.
Repeat directions for the other half of your limes and sugar water.
*I have left the pulp in the Limeade and think it tastes good that way, too! Just be sure to pulse the pulp mixture until it’s pulverized and drinkable.
