Frothy Brazilian Lemonade

This sweet and tangy Frothy Brazilian Lemonade is most refreshing…

When the humid hot dog days of summer arrive, you’ll want to whirl up a bunch of these… sweet but tart and tangy Brazilian Lemonades.  There are thousands of this recipe out there, so I concocted with a little twist. A gal who loves fizzy drinks, I topped off with a bit of seltzer and voila… “froth!”  

If you’re an adult beverage consumer… you’ll want to try this with a splash of your fave… particularly tasty with coconut rum… but works nicely with other rums… tequila… vodka and more.  This makes a simple base recipe to add your own twists for what may be your new favorite refreshing sultry day treat.  

Should you need great USA made knives (since 1948!) for slicing the fruits, visit my online Rada store and have delivered right to your doorstep.  All of the paring knives are perfect… I especially love the tomato knife.  (Nice gifts at nice prices for housewarming and wedding gifts too.)

Frothy Brazilian Lemonade

Traditional Brazilian Lemonade is made with limes (the name for lemons and limes there where limes are more plentiful). As delicious is that is, I've added lemon with the lime for extra robust citrus flavor. You can enjoy without the seltzer but we like the froth that adds. This also makes a nice mixer for adult cocktails.

  • 2 small limes
  • 1 large lemon

NOTE: look for fruits with thinner smooth skin that will be less bitter and juicer

  • cup condensed milk we used coconut condensed milk but regular will be fine
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • about 2 cups ice water 3 if not using seltzer
  • lime seltzer or plain


  • Wash fruit and cut into small pieces making sure to remove seeds from lemon and white pith in the center.
  • Combine in blender with milk, sugar and honey. Add the cold water to blend, no more than 30 seconds. Strain out pulp. Add more water if not using seltzer. Taste and add a bit more honey or milk if needed as fruits will vary in juiciness and tartness.
  • Pour over crushed ice and top with about a cup of seltzer water per serving.
  • Garnish with slices of lemon and lime.
  • Serve immediately as mixture will become bitter after sitting due to pith.


To quickly make crushed ice:
Put ice cubes in a heavy zippered bag. Bang with a meat cleaver or can about 30 seconds until crushed!
Great with tequila, vodka or rum for refreshing cocktails.
