Brazilian Lemonade

Brazilian lemons look and taste more like common limes, so this lemonade recipe does not call for lemons. The touch of sweetened condensed milk gives this drink a rich, subtle creaminess while the blender creates a frothy finish.

This refreshing cooler, ideal on a hot summer day, is best served immediately as it becomes bitter tasting when made ahead of time.

Brazilian Lemonade

This is best served immediately over ice cubes or crushed ice.


  • 4 fresh limes, washed thoroughly
  • 6 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup NESTLE CARNATION Sweetened CondensedMilk, divided
  • 14 ice cubes (1 tray), divided, plus more for serving


  1. Cut off ends of each lime and cut each into 8 wedges. Place 16 wedges, 3 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk and 7 ice cubes in blender. Cover; blend for 20 seconds. (Blending longer will cause drink to become bitter.)
  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into pitcher to remove rinds.
  3. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
