This stuff absolutely rocks!  It's WAY more thirst-quenching than lemonaid is.  Give it a try!  It's a bit time consuming, but I think it's totally worth it!

4 Limes (Cut in quarters then halved short-wise)
4 cups of cold water
4 cups of ice
1/3 cup of white sugar
1 (14oz) can Condensed Milk (You can also use Coconut Milk instead)

Place everything in blender, and run for about two minutes.  You'll probably want a towel to put over the lid, as I experienced spillover.  You'll also want a fine-mesh strainer handy.

Next I did this twice.  I poured the chunky lime mixture through my strainer and you'll need a spoon to move the pulp around so the liquid will strain.

Add fresh ice to a glass and pour limeaid over ice.  (You may also want to add some Tequila or Rum for a tasty treat*.


I'm going to find something to do with this lime pulp that's left over.  I think it's a shame to waste it.  Do you have any ideas?

I wish I could like lime lol I've made lemonade before but not with a cream such as milk or coconut milk.
Now I'm not sure about the lime pulp but when we used to juice, we'd spread out the carrots & other veggies for the rabbits who chowed down. Some even keep the pulp to make baked goods or to add to soups & stews.
Since lime is not something most critters would eat, why not make a salad dressing or some kind of dip? Some tortilla chips have lime as a flavor so I'm sure lime would be good in salsa. Can freeze it & use for later.
