What to Cook for Dinner?
A few weeks ago I share a super easy recipe for 60-second frozen hot chocolate. With the hot weather really coming on now I thought you all might enjoy another cool and easy beverage to make. This recipe is for 60-second strawberry limeade. It’s the perfect balance of sweet strawberries with the tartness of the lime, so refreshing.
Lemonade and limeade are so refreshing in the summer and when you add a little fruit to it, you can make it even more delicious. Now I’ve enjoyed strawberry lemonade before but I thought the combination of strawberry and lime would be wonderful too.
This recipe is really great for summer when the fresh strawberries are plentiful but it’s also equally tasty with frozen berries so don’t limit yourself to making they tasty drink only during strawberry season.
What You’ll Need to Make Strawberry Limeade
- Lime Juice

You can use simple syrup in this recipe to make it even more simple. I shared my recipe last year and it’s great in all kinds of drink recipes and ice tea too.
Be sure to chop the strawberries really small and then crush with a fork before adding them to the glass, if you don’t have a hand blender to use.
Don’t limit yourself to sugar or simple syrup for sweetener, you can use honey or any other sugar substitute you would like if you are eating a sugar-free diet.
60 Second Strawberry Limeade
- 3 tablespoons Lime Juice 1-2 limes
- 1 1/2 cups Water
- 2 tablespoons Sugar or Simple Syrup
- 2 sliced Strawberries
- Place all the ingredients in a cup.
- Using a hand blender, blend for until strawberries are pureed and the sugar has dissolved.
- Serve over ice.
- If desired garnish with a strawberry and lime slice.
That’s my super simple recipe for a single serving 60-second strawberry limeade. It’s refreshing and easy to make. This recipe makes a nice generous single serving of strawberry limeade. If you are making this recipe for more than one just multiply the ingredients by how many you’ll be serving.
