For a sweet and creamy drink that screams summer, you must try this Creamy Lemonade. You may have seen a similar drink made with limes called Brazilian Lemonade (yes, still called lemonade even though made with limes). The one thing that stands out in both drinks is using sweetened condensed milk. But, there are enough lemons to give the drink just a hint of tartness so it is not too sweet.
Creamy Lemonade Ingredients
With just a few ingredients, it’s easy to get this sweet and refreshing treat poured into a glass and sipped!
Lemons: You will need about 6 lemons for this recipe. Four of the lemons will be juiced, and the other two lemons will be sliced and added to the pitcher. Be sure to wash the lemons thoroughly before juicing them and slicing them. If using bottled lemon juice, use about 2 tablespoons of lemon concentrate for each freshly squeezed lemon.
Sweetened Condensed Milk: The sweetened condensed milk gives the drink sweetness, as well as creaminess. Do not substitute evaporated milk in this recipe. For even more sweetness, feel free to add more than just a 1/4 cup of milk.
Sugar: It doesn’t get much sweeter than adding granulated sugar to the mix!
Variations to Creamy Lemonade
This is a nonalcoholic drink suitable for all ages. But, you could add vodka to the mix for more of a vodka lemonade adult drink. Or, add some homemade ginger ale or a splash of cherry limeade to your glass.
- crushed ice
- 1-2 large lemons, thinly sliced
- 4 large lemons, juiced (approximately 1 cup)
- ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk, or more, to taste
- ½ cup granulated sugar

- Fill a half-gallon (2-quart) pitcher halfway with crushed ice. Top with sliced lemons.
- In a medium bowl, combine the lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk, and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
- Pour the lemon juice mixture over the ice.
- Fill the pitcher with water and stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Do you have the nutritional value for the creamy lemonade please
Hi, Cissy! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. We just stick to a rough calorie count per serving. For each cup of creamy lemonade, it’s about 89 calories. Have a great day!
Can’t wait to make this, with some vodka.
If u don’t have fresh lemons could u use lemon juice concentrate?
Hi, Lisa! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. If using bottled lemon juice, use about 2 tablespoons of lemon concentrate for each freshly squeezed lemon. I hope this helps, and have a great day!

Do you have recipe for Germans Chocolate Cake
Hi, Jean! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. Here is a German Chocolate Slab Pie you may want to try. Have a great day!
I’d be concerned with the acid from the lemon juice curdling the milk. Was this observed at all when testing the recipe?
Condensed milk does not curdle the same way traditional cow’s milk does. No, in all my testing I did not observe any curdling.
Absolutely delicious better than normal lemonade I shall be making it again
Easy to make and taste good
