Brazilian Limeade

Oh my.  This stuff is so good!  It tastes just like the Brazilian limeade that you can get at Rodizio Grill, only you don't have to pay five dollars per glass. 

Brazilian Limeade

2 cups ice cubes
2 limes
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water

Begin by blending the ice alone to really small shavings.  Wash the limes very well, cut off the ends and then cut into 8ths. (Do not peel them!)  Add the lime wedges, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and water to the ice and blend well.  I blend it for at least 1 minute till I don't hear a lot of chunks.  Turn off the blender and allow the drink to sit for a minute, this allows the ice to melt a little bit and makes it cool and refreshing.  Pour the limeade through a fine strainer (to get all the lime bits out) into a glass. Serve immediately and enjoy!

I can't wait to try this. 2 limes are on my grocery list right now. Phillip and I always get this in the little pitcher at Rodizio. Thanks for sharing! Tiff
