Brazilian Limeade

My husband lived in Brazil for a couple of years and really loved this drink while he was there.  We also have many Brazilian friends and got this recipe from one of them.  There is just something about this drink that hits the "comfort food" button. It's so creamy and delicious. Our Favorite part is to drink the frothy foam at the top. You can also add ice (I like using sonic ice because it shaves up nicely) to the blender to may it more of a slushy drink.

Brazilian Limeade

2 limes
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
3 cups water

Wash limes and cut into quarters (Keep the peels on). In a blender, combine limes, sugar, condensed milk and water. Blend for about 30 seconds, or until limes are broken down. (you can also add ice to this step to make it a thicker drink) Strain juice through a fine mesh strainer to remove pulp. Serve over ice.
