Brazilian Limeades


I was thrilled when Samantha announced that limes were the main ingredient for Cooks in the Kitchen. It was the perfect opportunity to share a little piece of what I love with you.

Being born and having spent the first nine years of my life in Brazil was an experience that still impacts me today. I'm grateful for the childhood years lived in another country allowing me to see a different way of life. Brazilian food was also a big part of my childhood years. I can't recount the various occasions we visited people's homes and spent time getting to know one another over a meal or coffee. If you visited someone's home there was food involved - lots of it! To this day I still love Brazilian food and I enjoy cooking it at home. I wanted to start documenting some of these recipes. It's a little piece of what I love so dearly, shared with you.

Do you like limeades? What's your favorite drink to make?

  5. I'm sure you will enjoy them. I don't make them too often because of all the sweetened condensed milk but a treat now and then is really delicious!

  9. I forgot all about that Brazilian name! Do they still make them this way in Brazil? I sure do wish they had fresh pressed sugar cane juice here in the States. I love that stuff.

  10. I've never had it with the ice blended in, but they do use the sweetened condensed milk. It's a little too sweet for my liking, but Peter, having grown up here, is obsessed with anything made with sweetened condensed milk or doce de leite!

  11. I just added the ice in because me and my sister do that. I didn't know Brazilians didn't add ice. I do think they are super sweet! I think the milk can be reduced to preference.Yes to the sweetened condensed milk. My dad sometimes boils a can of it so it will turn to caramel and then he eats it. ha!
