Description

Limonana is the national drink of Israel. This simple frozen lemonade is blended together with mint to make a frozen slush. It is so refreshing, the perfect treat for a hot, humid afternoon. You can easily make it diet or diabetic friendly by using a low glycemic sweetener (suggestions appear at the end of the recipe). If you’re feeling naughty, you could also add a splash of citrus-infused vodka to the mix.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Water, Divided Use
  • ½ cups Sugar (or More To Taste)
  • 1 cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 3-½ cups Ice
  • ½ cups Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 6 sprigs Fresh Mint, For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup of water and sugar till the sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat and allow to cool. In a blender, combine the sugar water, fresh lemon juice, ice, fresh mint leaves and remaining 1 cup of water. Pulse for a few seconds, then blend for 1 minute till the ice is thoroughly crushed and the drink takes on the texture of a thick slushy. Taste. This recipe produces a mildly sweet limonana, which is the way I like it. Some people like it sweeter. Add sugar to taste, if desired, and blend again. Pour into cold glasses and serve. Garnish with sprigs of mint, if desired.

Note: If you’re on a low sugar diet or watching your weight, you can also make this drink with Splenda, stevia, agave, or your favorite low glycemic sweetener. Rather than making the sugar water, add a cup of unsweetened water to the blender (2 cups of water total) and blend the drink without sugar. Add your sweetener of choice to taste, blend again, and serve.
