Brazilian Limeade

Brazilian Limade

There is nothing quite as refreshing as a Brazilian Limeade on a warm summer day! This delicious, slightly coconutty drink with some Lime Essential oil, is the perfect pick-me-up! So, in honor of the World Cup being in Brazil this year, we hope you enjoy this wonderful beverage!

2 fresh limes, quartered
⅓ cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup coconut milk
⅓ cup evaporated cane juice
4 cups cold water
5 drops YL Lime Essential Oil
1 fresh lime, sliced in rings for garnish (optional)

In the VitaMix, gently blend the lime quarters, condensed milk, coconut milk, cane juice and 1 cup of cold water, just until the limes have been chopped up a bit and everything is blended. Pour the mixture through a mesh strainer to remove the chunks of limes. Pour the remaining three cups of cold water through the strainer to make sure you are getting all of the good flavors! Add 5 drops of YL Lime Essential Oil. Stir and serve immediately over crushed ice, garnishing with a slice of lime if desired.

Makes just over 1 quart.
