Fresh lime juice combined with sweetened condensed milk creates sweet, creamy, and smoothie-like drink with a wonderful tang of lime. You can make this Brazilian lemonade right at home, so easy and quick.
Peel or unpeel
The original recipe uses unpeeled lime to make this drink, but I like to peel my limes because my limes have thick skin and it can make the drink bitter. If you don’t mind a slight bitterness in your lemonade just wash, quartered the limes, and remove the white pits in the middle.
Brazilian Lemonade (serves 4)
- 3 limes
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

- Wash the limes. If you don’t like bitterness in your juice, peel the limes with peeler or paring knife. Quarter the limes and remove the white pits in the middle.
- Put limes, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and water in a blender. Pulse for 30 seconds until the limes thoroughly chopped.
- Pour the mixture over a strainer to remove the pulp. Serve lemonade immediately over ice.
