Frosty Limeade

July 12, 2018 — 2 Comments

This refreshing limeade is the perfect mix of creamy and frosty, and a sure way to beat the heat this summer!

One of my favorite ways to beat the summer heat is with a cold drink. I especially love drinks that find the perfect balance between tart and sweet, like this cool, creamy Frosty Limeade. It’s is so good! It’s sweetened with both sugar and sweetened condensed milk for creaminess, uses fresh, whole limes for intense lime flavor, and has a hefty dose of ice to give it a frosty, slushy consistency. You can find the recipe for this family-friendly favorite on my latest post for Oriental Trading Co’s awesome site, Fun365.com, by clicking HERE. And I really enjoyed taking pictures of these, so here are lots of pretty pics of Frosty Limeade to whet your summer beverage appetite.
