Creamy Lemonade

For a sweet and creamy drink that screams summer, you must try this Creamy Lemonade. You may have seen a similar drink made with limes called Brazilian Lemonade (yes, still called lemonade even though made with limes). The one thing that stands out in both drinks is using sweetened condensed milk. But, there are enough lemons to give the drink just a hint of tartness so it is not too sweet.

Creamy Lemonade Ingredients

With just a few ingredients, it’s easy to get this sweet and refreshing treat poured into a glass and sipped!

Lemons: You will need about 6 lemons for this recipe. Four of the lemons will be juiced, and the other two lemons will be sliced and added to the pitcher. Be sure to wash the lemons thoroughly before juicing them and slicing them. If using bottled lemon juice, use about 2 tablespoons of lemon concentrate for each freshly squeezed lemon.

Sweetened Condensed Milk: The sweetened condensed milk gives the drink sweetness, as well as creaminess. Do not substitute evaporated milk in this recipe. For even more sweetness, feel free to add more than just a 1/4 cup of milk.

Sugar: It doesn’t get much sweeter than adding granulated sugar to the mix!

How to Make Creamy Lemonade

To get this drink made, first, fill a half-gallon pitcher (a 2-quart pitcher) halfway with crushed ice. Top the ice with sliced lemons. Next, in a medium bowl, combine the freshly squeezed lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk, and sugar. Stir the mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved.

Pour the lemon juice mixture over the ice in the pitcher. Fill it up with water and stir to combine. Pour into glasses and sip away! It is a creamy texture with just a hint of tartness that offsets the sweetness of the sweetened condensed milk and sugar.

Variations to Creamy Lemonade

This is a nonalcoholic drink suitable for all ages. But, you could add vodka to the mix for more of a vodka lemonade adult drink. Or, add some homemade ginger ale or a splash of cherry limeade to your glass.
