Sweet strawberries pureed into homemade limeade and chilled make the ultimate refreshing summer beverage.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ripe strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • up to 6 cups cold water
Optional garnish:
  • additional lime slices and strawberries
Instructions
  1. Add the strawberries, sugar and lime juice to the pitcher of your blender.
  2. Blend until completely smooth.
  3. Add 4 cups of cold water and pulse just 3 times to combine.
  4. Taste, add more water to adjust and pulse, if desired.
  5. Put the lid on the pitcher and put the pitcher into the refrigerator (or transfer into a jar with a tight fitting lid) for an hour before serving.
  6. Pour into tall glasses (*see notes), with or without ice, and garnish the rim of the glass with additional lime slices and strawberries, if desired.
  7. Serve with a straw.
Notes
*If you prefer a smooth, pulp-free limeade, you can pour it through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a jar or pitcher with a tight fitting lid. I personally love pulp, so I leave it!
