Simple Herb Omelets & Peppered Broccoli Side

This classic omelet meal is a great choice for lunch, brunch and casual entertaining. The peppered broccoli is simple to make and adds a great color accent.

Rate & Review

Brazilian lemons look and taste more like common limes, so this lemonade recipe does not call for lemons. The touch of sweetened condensed milk gives this drink a rich, subtle creaminess while the blender creates a frothy finish. This refreshing cooler, ideal on a hot summer day or as a tasty starter, is best served immediately as it becomes bitter tasting when made ahead of time.

recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 fresh limes, washed thoroughly
  • 6 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk, divided
  • 14 ice cubes (1 tray), divided, plus more for serving

Directions:

CUT off ends of each lime and cut each into 8 wedges. Place 16 wedges, 3 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk and 7 ice cubes in blender. Cover; blend for 20 seconds. (Blending longer will cause drink to become bitter.) Strain through a fine mesh strainer into pitcher to remove rinds. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Best served immediately over ice cubes or crushed ice.

    Refreshing

    Emma Eaves from Fargo, ND

    I love limes so I tried this recipe out and my friend liked it more than I did. A quarter of the recipe is plenty for two people. It is a simple and refreshing drink.

    Awesome summer drink (or party drink for non-alc)

    Eric Putkonen from Mound, MN

    I wanted something different to drink and saw this, so I thought I would give it a try. My fiance was skeptical ("condensed milk as an ingrediant...I don't know"), but she loves this drink better than me. It is very refreshing.

    This is so easy to make and has a great flavor. Since I was out of limes the first time I made it, I used Lime Juice...just as good as when I made it the second time with limes. This recipe is now posted on the frig and will be used often.

    Brazilian Lemonade

    Denise Middleton from HEMET, CA

    This is a wonderful summer drink. Nice and refreshing. Instead of straining, I use a lime squeezer that is used for margaritas and saves time and flavor.

    Brazilian Lemonade

    jessica doman from KINGWOOD, WV

    The lemonade sounds good, but can't you cut the rind off so you do not have to strain it??

  •  Star(s)

    Such an intriguing recipe

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    I zested the limes, then peeled away most of the pith and discarded it. I added all the sweet-tart fruity pulp, and proceeded with the recipe, with delicious results. I will experiment with adding fresh pineapple (no peels LOL!) and maybe a little splash of rum. YUM

    Julie Taylor from West Allis, WI

    What's not to love about Magic Bars!!! With or without the raspberry they bring joy! --Although the raspberry does add another layer of enjoyment. I LOVE when I make something that my husband is convinced he won't like "I don't like coconut!" BUT then he's so tempted that he tries it anyway and eats the majority of the pan!!! Excellent recipe.

    Easy and (Dangerously) Delicious

    I use both chocolate and white chocolate chips, as I love the pairing of white chocolate and raspberry, and it gives the bars a nice variation of coloring. I also leave out the walnuts. -This is a go-to dessert/treat for a "girls" movie night with friends.

    Raspberry Magic Bars

    Lois Griffith from MCMURRAY, PA

    I have made this bar cookie twice for crowds and each time, I have been asked by many people for the recipe. I have also been told that someone who did not normally care for either coconut or chocolate could not get enough of these cookies. Great & easy! I find it easier to cut if I chill the finished cookies first. Small size recommended. They are rich.

    very tasty!

    Cheryl Meilleur from Niverville, MB

    I made this tonight and it was so yummy. I didn't have any raspberry jam without seeds so I used strawberry jam and the flavor of the jam with this recipe is what really adds the nice touch to the taste. I also used orea baking crumbs instead and it was a really nice touch of chocolate and I cut back on the chocolate chips to only 1 cup. I will be making this again for our family since we all really liked it. Thank you for the quick, tasty treat!

    I made these bars over the Christmas holidays. My children loved them and so did the rest of the family. Both my kids decided that they wanted to help make the bars. They really enjoy baking. The sad thing is that we don't have much time to do it. Baking as a family is the most wonderful time for me as a MOM.
