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.Β 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!

  1. Maria, this just looks wonderful- perfect for hitting the spot on this hot August summer afternoons! This would be great for a Bear Lake sipper. Thank you!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. I am a fan of anything with strawberries. This not only looks refreshing but I love the color as well. I am going to try this one out on my kids.

  5. Ah! We’re trying to savor every last bit of summer as well. I cannot believe its already August. What a great drink. I love love limeade. Hope the kitchen is coming along nicely πŸ˜‰

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. Finally had a chance to stop by and see the site redesign. You guys are just remodeling everything aren’t you? πŸ˜‰

    Nice drink and the best part is you don’t need a kitchen to make it. I could imagine this with a little vodka in it for kicks. πŸ™‚

  9. I love lime anything and I have all the ingredients right now. Looks like I’m going to be making something yummy.

  10. Hello! I am a frequent reader of blog comments and internet reviews, but rarely am I inclined to add my two cents. However, I find myself compelled to tell you, Maria, that this drink is oh so delicious and refreshing, and I will make it again! It’s also perfect for those times when you have more limes and strawberries than you know what to do with and don’t want them to go to waste. Thank you for sharing!

  11. Hello Two Peas!

    i just posted a limeade based on this one of yours. ItΒ΄s so refreshing, me and my daughters loved it! Thank you for sharing.

  12. This tastes like a strawberry margarita. Pretty good! Smells bad when you mix it though, don’t let that discourage you.

  13. It says “big pitcher,” but any idea how much it makes, ounce-wise? Wanting to make this for a party and need to know if i need to double/triple the recipe or more…
