Strawberry Limeade

Strawberry Limeade

The summer is flying by, I can’t believe it is August already. We are still enjoying the hot summer sun and temperatures in Utah. To cool down, I made a special beverage, strawberry limeade. It is very refreshing and so simple to make.

Josh was working hard on our kitchen remodel and I sensed he needed a break, so I brought him a tall glass of strawberry limeade. We enjoyed our drinks on the front porch. We love sitting outside. We are lucky our house gets a nice canyon breeze. It is also fun to watch the neighborhood families walk, run, bike, and scooter around the neighborhood. We also have some of the cutest dogs in our neighborhood. It was nice to relax and slowly sip our strawberry limeade. We are trying to enjoy every last bit of summer we can and this beverage did the trick.

This strawberry limeade is a little sweet and a little sour with fresh strawberry puree in the mix. Use fresh lime juice and the sweetest strawberries you can find. It is the perfect summer drink for adults and kids. Make a big pitcher because everyone will want to cool down with a special strawberry limeade drink. Cheers!

Strawberry Limeade

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups quartered fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh lime juice
5 cups cold water
3/4 to 1 cup granulated sugar (depending on how sweet the strawberries are)
Ice cubes
Lime slices-for serving, if desired

Directions:

1. Blend strawberries and lime juice in blender or food processor until smooth.

2. Pour strawberry and lime mixture into a large pitcher. Add cold water and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves.

3. Add in ice cubes and pour into individual glasses. Garnish with lime, if desired.

4. Pour over ice cubes in tall glasses; garnish each with strawberry or lime wedge, if desired.

    TCB sent me over here, but I’m afraid I have to leave now. You see, I’m pregnant and craving everything. But I’m also on bed rest. So your lovely site is making me want to get up and bake cookies and zucchini french fries and black bean salsa. I’ll be sure to bookmark you and come back later when I can actually do something about all these cravings! …..Mmmmmm, I’m hungry now!

    Despite a couple of my most recent posts having to do with lemons and even a lavender lemonade; I love limes. Given the choice between lemonade and limeade; I go green every time so this looks especially appealing with my favorite citrus combined with strawberries.

    As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make it asap! It was delicious! I did substitute agave nectar for the sugar (I don’t like super sweet drinks). It was still so refreshing and tasty!

    Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction — August 4, 2010 @ 7:13 pm

    I always prefer limeade to lemonade for some reason… and your version looks lovely! I could use some right now… We’ve had quite a bit of hot and sticky weather.

    It’s so humid here right now, so this sounds wonderful! I have so many strawberries in my freezer right now since my grocery store always seems to have them on sale. This will be a good way to use some up!
