How to make Homemade Limeade

This limeade recipe consists of just three simple ingredients – limes, water, and maple syrup. I am a huge fan of using fresh limes. That being said, if you can’t find fresh limes or they aren’t cost-effective, an organic lime juice works great too.

There is about two tablespoons of juice per lime or about 30 milliliters.
