This quick and easy recipe for making fresh homemade limonada, lemonade or limeade is a great family treat on a hot day.  Seven out of seven  Downings love this drink. 


  • ½ cup of sugar, more or less based on your preference
  • 2 limes or lemons, quartered and any seeds removed
  • 8 cups of cold water
  • Ice cubes as desired and lemon/lime and strawberry slices to garnish


First.  Place quartered limes or lemons in the blender with 4 cups of water and sugar.

Then.  Blend until the limes or lemon is completely pulverized, the mixture should be slightly foamy with a whitish color.

Then.  Strain the lemonade and add the remaining 4 cups of water.

Enjoy.  Serve chilled or with ice.


Because you blend the whole limes/lemons, skin and all. It does get bitter quickly, so drink it the same day you make it.
