Brazilian Limeade Popsicles

A few months ago Caitlin made some Brazilian Limeade and it was one of my favorite drinks! Ever since, it’s been a serious craving and I thought during hot summer months, that flavor would make for a perfectly refreshing, tart treat!
I stuck to the basic recipe that Caitlin used for her Limeade drink, but subbed milk for the water as I wanted a creamier popsicle. You can taste the mixture after mixing it up and adjust ingredients as desired – I actually added a little extra lime juice to mine because I can’t get enough lime flavor!

2 cups milk
2 limes, whole*
fresh lime juice from 2 limes (about 1/4 cup juice)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

Thoroughly wash 2 limes, cut off and discard the ends, and cut the remaining section into eighths. Combine milk, the two whole limes (including skin), lime juice, and condensed milk in blender and pulse until combined (about 5 times). Strain liquid and discard the pulp. You can taste and adjust the ingredients as desired (you can add extra lime juice, or if you think it’s not sweet enough, add a little sugar). Pour into popsicle mold (you can add a slice of lime into the mold while pouring if you’d like). Freeze 6 hours or overnight.
(I had a little extra limeade after filling my popsicle mold, so I poured it over ice, added a little cold water and enjoyed Brazilian Limeade!)

*Use thin, smooth skinned limes – they’re juicier and less bitter.
