Limeade is a lime flavored drink which is sweetened by adding sugar. Normally sugar syrup or honey syrup is prepared, combined with lime juice and additional water is added.

Limeades are so refreshing and can be prepared in no time, without much effort and with just two ingredients- lime juice and sugar.

If you are looking for a good glowing skin, go for this limeade. They also have high water content and soluble fiber. Limes are high in Vitamin C. Limeades help to lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation and to reduce inflammation.

This is not great for weight loss as we have added sugar to it. The recipe I have shared below is not so sweet as you get in restaurants.

The recipe shared below is the perfect combination of sweetness and tanginess. The sugar used can always be increased or decreased. Sugar can be substituted with honey too. I have used brown sugar.

This limeade is good to drink at any part of the day. I pack this for my son wherever and whenever he plays nowadays as it refreshes immediately, keeps one hydrated and is a good immunity booster too.
