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 all grown ups here, I offer a natural refined sugar free sweetening option. Yup, grown ups need to watch the carbs! In place of sugar use liquid stevia drops or stevia powder. <—I use this brand. Simply sweeten to taste!
What to Serve it with:
This limeade would be fabulous served with our Grilled Naan Chicken Salad Wraps with Cherry Salsa! It’s the perfect summer meal.
The Recipe: Homemade Fresh Squeezed Limeade with Natural Sugar Free Option!
Tips and what you need: we skip the step of making a simple syrup by using a fine sugar like ‘baker’s sugar’ or ‘castor sugar’.Both can usually be found at any grocery store. If you are making your drink naturally sugar free, use liquid stevia drops or stevia powder. Of course it never hurts to have a beautiful glass pitcher!
Homemade Fresh Squeezed Limeade with Natural Sugar Free Option!
Yield 4 servings
A quick and easy to make refreshing limeade for two with a natural sweetening option!
3 1/2 cups ice cold water
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (limes should be cold)
3/4 cup baker's sugar or castor sugar, or sweeten with liquid or powdered Stevia to taste
Place all ingredients in a pitcher and stir. Add ice and serve!
Note: if using Stevia, be aware that because of the amount of liquid in this recipe and the sour limes, it will take more than the few drops or the 1/4 teaspoon that you usually use for your morning drink. Also, if you are new to Stevia and it's just not sweet enough for you, you can use a combination of Stevia and sugar. This is actually a really great option for cutting back! Baby steps y'all. Baby steps.
