The Brazilian lemonade slushie packs a lime punch!
It is cold, creamy, and completely refreshing!
This Brazilian lemonade is a misnomer. It gets made out of fresh limes rather than lemons. I used lemon-flavored coconut water for an extra punch of citrus. When you read the Brazilian lemonade recipe, you’ll notice that you blend up the whole lime. All the solids should be drained before you return this mixture to the blender. I added lots of ice and sweetened condensed milk to the blender to make this lemonade creamy and slushy. This lemonade slushie is the best refreshment to combat the heat of summer! Frozen lemonade slushies for everyone!
What is Brazilian Lemonade?
In brazil, lemons are not very common, but limes usually come in bucketloads. So when life gives you limes, make limeade, er, lemonade. Their version of our yellow drink is a bit greener and tastes so good it could easily stand on its own two legs. Made with sweetened condensed milk it got a creamier taste in every sip. You’re going to love this summer staple of a drink recipe!
- Lemonade coconut water
- Sweetened condensed milk
How to Make Brazilian Lemonade Slushie
- Place the coconut water, limes, and sugar into a blender and process until the limes have broken up and the mixture is blended.
- Pour the lime mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the solids. Discard the solids.
- Return the liquid to the blender and add in the ice and sweetened condensed milk.
- Blend together until frothy and creamy.
- Serve immediately.
How long is this drink good for?
Because of the sweetened condensed milk, do not let this drink sit out for too long. Not only that but the ice will melt and could cause the beverage to feel watered down instead of creamy and frothy as desired.
Can I use lime juice concentrate instead of fresh limes?
I do not recommend doing that as it will change the flavor completely. Lime juice concentrate is concentrated lime juice so adding it into the blender will be done by taste testing through the whole process until the desired flavor is achieved but by using the concentrate you lose out on the freshness and health benefits of the limes and their lime skins.
