So this is the perfect thing for a warm day. Heck even a cool one! When we have a over abundance of lemons and limes I like to make juice before they go bad. Because if I know one thing everyone loves a glass of ice cold juice. Its also a plus it makes a great mixer for most cocktails.
I like to add fruit to my limeades because when you get fruit in season it tends to be sweeter so I can add less sugar because anyone who makes fresh limeades knows the amount of sugar can be alarming.
1Tb chia seeds
3/4c lime juice
In a shallow pan combine water and sugar bring to a boil till all sugar is dissolved for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set to the side.
In a blender blend strawberries with lime juice.
Combine sugar water, strawberries, and chia seeds. Taste and adjust recipe to your liking . Chill for a couple hours.
You can make this recipe as sweet or a tart as you want. For a sweeter limeade add more sugar for a tarter one add more lime.
When you blend the strawberries and limes. You can either puree it like a syrup or pulse it so you have little small strawberry chunks (which is always a nice touch)
Lime can be swapped out for lemon.
Taste your strawberries prior to using them so you know if you’ll end up having to use more or less sugar.
Shake or stir well before drinking to disperse strawberries and chia.
