Brazilian Lemonade

It is a great mystery why this special Brazilian drink is called Brazilian “lemonade” when it is actually made with limes. Maybe somewhere along the way people decided limes taste better in the recipe than lemons, and didn’t bother to change the name. This “lemonade” is made with fresh lime juice and zest, with condensed milk to make it creamy. It is a special treat all year round!

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Multiple times a day, I crave a little something sweet, and, now that summer’s here, popsicles are a must have! Sadly, store-bought popsicles are packed full of sugar, a no-no if you’ve got three rambunctious little ones running around — or even just one, for that matter! But, luckily, it’s so easy to make your own, and the prep is little to none. Before you know it, you will have a sweet, refreshing, cold treat perfect for satisfying those cravings!

Strawberry Lemonade Slushie

Do you remember those red and blue gas station slushies as a kid? Those are what this drink reminds me of, except a lot healthier! There are no artificial dyes, and I minimized the sugar in this recipe. I used frozen strawberries to get the cold slushie effect, but feel free to add in some fresh strawberries if you have some you need to use up! The lemonade part is very easy to make with only three ingredients: fresh lemon, water […]

Slushy Mango Lemonade

I have always enjoyed making homemade lemonade, but I recently discovered flavored lemonades! So far, I’ve made raspberry and strawberry lemonades, but this slushy mango lemonade is my new favorite. I use frozen mangos to give it a cool, slushy texture. You can use fresh mangos if you don’t want it as cold. What’s your favorite flavored lemonade?

Homemade Cherry Lemonade

I am so ready for summer! What is your favorite summer drink/food? Lemonade has always been a favorite of mine during the hot summer days living in Southern California. Since I moved to the Bay Area, the weather never really gets very hot in the city. Therefore, you all have to celebrate the summer season for me! One of my favorite things about summer is the collection of fresh cherries at the local Farmers’ Markets. This past weekend my friend […]

Cucumber Limeade

As I sit in wooly socks and hoodies, I dream of the spring. In NYC, April is the most ridiculous of months. One moment, it’s 65 degrees and sunny, and you shave your legs and put on sandals and sunglasses and smile because the sun has finally, FINALLY come out. The next day it snows. And here I am making Little Inspiration’s Cucumber Limeade and watching reality TV to forget the dreariness outside. This drink will make you believe you’re […]
