Sippin’ Together:

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!

Ingredients
  • 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!
Instructions
  1. 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.)
