Spiked with red chili powder and black salt, this glass of deliciousness is wickedly good and so refreshing!

Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
700 ml Tender Coconut Water / Regular Water

130 gm Strawberries, hulled and washed

4 to 5 strawberries, sliced

4 tbsp Lime Juice (I could procure it from two medium sized limes)

4 – 6 tbsp Sugar or any sweetener of your choice (adjust sweetness)

Plenty of Ice

2 tbsp Mint Leaves

2 Lemons, thinly sliced

Chili Powder (optional)

Black Salt (optional)

Preparation

  • Blend the strawberries in a blender, along with one tablespoon of sugar, till they are reduced to pulp. Feel free to strain the blended strawberries in case you wish to get rid of the seeds. (I do not strain since I like the rustic look it adds to the limeade)
  • In a pitcher or mixing bowl, stir together the coconut water and sweetener till it is completely dissolved. Add lemon juice and pulped strawberries and stir well. Adjust sweetness.
  • Pour the strawberry limeade in glasses and add mint leaves, lemon slices and sliced strawberries.
  • Add a pinch of chili powder and black salt (adjust both to taste) and stir well.

    Serve the limeade, topped with ice.
  • Ensure to stir the lemonade before serving especially if, like me, you did not strain the strawberry pulp.

Observations:

Note – The Indian lemons are very sharp and tangy and this amount sufficed perfectly well for us.

Note – Feel free to swap the coconut water with regular water but you might have to slightly tweak the amounts of sugar and lemon juice.

Note – The amount of sugar will depend on how sour or sweet the strawberries are.

Note – The amount of ingredients was perfect for our us and how we like our lemonade. Feel free to adjust amount of strawberries or lemons to your liking.

Note – Use natural sweetener for a healthier strawberry lemonade. You can use any one of these – honey, maple, agave nectar or stevia.
