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!

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)
Tips and what you need: it certainly helps to have a citrus juicer! If choosing a sugar free option, I recommend Lankanto a natural 1:1 sweetening option! Of course it never hurts to have a beautiful glass pitcher!
Be sure all ingredients are very cold for best results. I offer a traditional sugar sweetened as well as naturally sugar free options.
- 7 cups ice water
- 2 cups cold freshly squeezed lime juice I use this to juice limes
- 1 1/2 cups sugar 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!
