Sugar-Free Brazilian Lemonade
Brazilian Lemonade is a refreshingly delicious drink, unlike any other beverage, and a favorite drink of many. Tart, but sweet, made with fresh limes and milk to make it creamy. We've taken a standard recipe and made it sugar-free using Monkfruit Sweetener.
- 2 cups water
- ½ cup Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener
- 2 whole limes, washed
3 T unsweetened milk (we used coconut milk)
3-5 drops Liquid Monkfruit Sweetener, original or vanilla
In a blender, mix water and Lakanto Powdered Sweetener until smooth.
Wash limes thoroughly with soap and cut the ends off and cut each lime into eighths.
Place limes into blender with Sweetener mix and pulse 4-5 times for a couple of seconds each. (do not turn blender on high or the peels will blend too much and be bitter)
Stir in milk and Liquid Monkfruit Drops.
Pour the mixture from the blender through a mesh strainer into a pitcher and strain out the solids.
Chill until ready to drink. Pour into 2 cups, over lots of ice and garnish with a fresh lime, if desired.
Why is this called lemonade and not limeade? In Brazil, lemons are not common. The Brazilian word for lemonade is "Limonada" and refers to limes.
Traditional Brazilian Lemonade is made with Sweetened Condensed milk. We've made the above recipe super simple with milk as an ingredient.
This recipe for sugar-free Sweetened Condensed Milk is a good one and can be substituted for the milk here, if so desired.
