Fresh, sweet, tart Limeade makes me think of summer, pool parties, and outdoor BBQs! If you haven’t had limeade in a while I highly recommend making a batch. So refreshing! (This post contains affiliate links. I may make a commission off sales but your price remains the same.)
Honestly, there is nothing more refreshing than a cold glass of limeade. And this one only has three ingredients. And because it’s hot outside, we skip the step of turning on the cooktop to make a simple syrup by using ‘baker’s sugar’ or ‘castor sugar’. Both are super fine sugars that dissolve quickly in ice cold water so you can enjoy your limeade instantly!
A Natural, No Sugar Option:
And because we are grown ups now, I offer a natural refined sugar free sweetening option. Yup, grown ups need to watch the carbs! In place of sugar I use Lankanto a natural 1:1 sweetening option made with monk fruit!
The Recipes: Fresh Squeezed Limeade (with natural sugar free option)
Be sure all ingredients are very cold for best results. I offer a traditional sugar sweetened as well as naturally sugar free options.

2cupscold freshly squeezed lime juiceI use this to juice limes
1 1/2cupssugar or low carb natural sweetener of your choice. ( If using sugar, I recommend "baker's" or "castor" sugar. It dissolves quicker! If you choose not to use sugar I recommend Lankanto, see link in blog post) You could also choose to use Stevia powder and sweeten to taste)
Variations: add a few springs of fresh mint or freshly grated ginger. To make sparkling limeade use ice cold sparkling water instead of flat!
Place all ingredients in pitcher, stir well. Place in the fridge, stirring occasionally till sugar dissolves. Serve over ice. (If you don't wait to wait for sugar to dissolve use caster sugar or super fine baker's sugar.)

I love my salads loaded with fresh, colorful goodies. In this case, berries! This is my Summer Berry Salad. It’s very simple and a hit at every summer party. (This post contains affiliate links. I may make a commission off sales but your price remains the same.)
This salad is incredibly simple. Just toss mixed greens, fresh spring and summer berries of your choice, caramelized pecans and soft goat cheese together and then dress! Perfect for a healthy lunch or delicious warm weather side dish.
How to Caramelize Nuts:
I love caramelized nuts in this salad. Click here to see how to make your own. Of course if you would rather skip the sugar you can use your favorite raw nut, roasted salted pistachios or cashews!
The Vinegar Makes All the Difference!
I am going to offer you two salad dressings for this salad, an amazing raspberry vinaigrette and a lemon dressing, but will suggest you try the raspberry! I use this Raspberry Vinegar from A L’Olivier, It’s amazing, rich, flavorful and pulpy.
