Two Summery, Kid-Friendly Drinks

Brazilian Lemonade
With warm weather, it makes a little more sense to have an after-school drink rather than an after school snack, and these two were big hits this last week! These drinks were also the result of buying a huge bag of limes and lemons from Costco, and feeling like I shouldn’t make them all into curd 🙂

Strawberry Lime Slushie

3 c. frozen strawberries
2 c. club soda
3 limes, juiced

Blend these three together. The club soda gives a little kick, but you could replace it for water or milk or lime soda, if desired. If you want even more lime flavor, zest the limes before juicing them.

Brazilian Lemonade or Limeade
pictured above

4 c. ice
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 whole lemon (or lime), cut into quarters (omit if you don’t like pulp, or just use the zest)
1 1/4 c.  fresh lemon or lime juice (or substitute with Real Lemon or concentrate)
1/4-1/2 c. sugar
4-5 c. water

The bigger the blender, the easier!

Unfortunately, I had to blend this drink in 3 batches:
Batch 1: sweetened condensed milk, 2 c. ice, 1/2 c. lemon juice, 2 c. water

Batch 2: another 1/2 c. lemon juice, 2 c. ice, 2 c. water

Batch 3: whole lemon, 1/4-1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. water

Blend together in a large pitcher. If not using immediately, make sure to stir before serving.
