Fizzy Limonada Suiça

I married a man who was born in Brasil. He introduced me to Limonada Suiça. And that is one of the reasons I love him dearly. Maybe you’ve had this drink at a Brasilian Churrascaria. If you haven’t, find one fast, you won’t regret it.

To make traditional Limonada Suiça, I usually throw some whole limes into the blender, strain it, and add a can of sweetened condensed milk. I like it icy cold. I experimented with limeade concentrate, which has the same bitter flavor as the fresh whole limes my traditional recipe, to make a slushy version for a luncheon I went to a little while ago. I can’t get enough of this.

I do love limes so much, you see.

Fizzy Limonada Suiça

original recipe


1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 can sweetened condensed milk
whole milk (enough to fill empty limeade can one time)
sparkling water/lemon-lime soda (more or less depending on how many servings you want)


Mix limeade concentrate, s.c. milk, and whole milk together. Freeze. (Sometimes I use my ice cream maker if I need it in a hurry.)

When ready to serve, either scoop the frozen limonada into individual glasses, or fill a punch bowl with the entire amount. Pour sparkling water or soda into each glass or into the punch bowl. Either mix together until slushy, or serve as a “float.”

**You can stretch the recipe by adding more milk or using more bottles of soda.

  1. reminds me of egg creams (chocolate syrup, carbonated water, milk)- totally different, but a little fizzy. Old Brooklyn treat that’s hard to find now-a-days.

  2. Yummmm! This looks delightful. I’m sure to try it. I adore your blog and your photos are gorgeous. You were the first to comment at my new food blog. Thank you so much for dropping by!

  3. This looks incredible for a hot summer day! Thanks for sharing- I love limes (actually any citrus) and I can’t wait to try this. I wonder if you could try it with frozen grapefruit juice concentrate…?

  4. Thank you so much for the recipe! My family is brasilian and it is impossible for me to find traditional recipes like this (including brigadeiro).
    So, you are my hero!
    Muito ‘brigado.
