An easy four ingredient strawberry limeade recipe that’s perfect for spring or summer!
When I was a teenager I had a serious obsession with Sonic. I kind of cringe admitting it now, but I loved to eat there all the time. I was a huge fan of their mozzarella sticks (which I’ve made a healthier version of here!) and their limeades. The strawberry and cherry limeade were my favorite drinks to get there too.
While this strawberry limeade isn’t quite like their version, it is still ridiculously good. Did I mention it’s also easy too? I think the hardest part of making this recipe is cutting the strawberries or squeezing the lime juice.
You’ll start with fresh strawberries. Simply slice up two cups of strawberries and squeeze some lime juice. I used about four limes for this recipe, but depending on the size that you use you may need more or less. Also, if you have a nice spouse you can convince them to squeeze the lime juice for you. Yes?
Once that’s done, just blend the strawberries and lime juice together. Add some water and sugar and you’re done!
I actually thought this strawberry limeade tasted a little bit better after refrigerating it for about an hour. But don’t worry, it’s still delicious if you drink it right away. I tried both ways for quality control purposes. Someone has to do it, right?
This is also a great drink to make ahead of time and just refrigerate until your ready to serve! Enjoy!
