Cherry limeade

Cherry limeade

En Español

This is my recipe for a quick and easy homemade cherry limeade drink, it’s made with fresh cherries, limes, water and sugar (or honey). I’m finally home from my amazing summer trip to Ecuador. Even though I already miss Ecuador, I am happy to be back (and in my kitchen where I know where everything is). I am also very happy that September is turning out to be a great month weather-wise for Seattle and that the farmers markets still have a lot of delicious summer fruits & vegetables. Summer is the best time to be in Seattle and I’m lucky to get a final taste of it before it ends. Cherries are definitely a sign of summer in the Pacific Northwest. In May, you can start to find cherries from California, but in the PNW, cherries seem to be at their peak in August. [read more]

Mango lemonade or limeade

Mango lemonade or mango limeade

En Español

This easy and simple refreshing mango lemonade or limeade is made with ripe mangoes, lemon or lime juice, sugar/honey, water, and ice. You can use either lemons or limes depending on your preference, or a mix of both. I am a citrus fan and used a decent amount for this drink, but you can adjust based on the amount of lemons/limes you have on hand. My husband could easily drink this without any added sugar, but I do like a little bit of sweetness so I add sugar or honey – the honey works great with the mango and citrus. I recommend adding some sugar/honey while blending the drink, then taste and adjust to your taste. [read more]
