This homemade cherry limeade is a sweet-tart refresher that was shared with us by Whole Foods in honor of their nationwide one-day cherry sale.
On July 11, 2014, in U.S. and Canadian stores, cherries will be $1.99 per pound. Alas, it is conventional cherries, not organic, but the price is still fantastic.
And with just one pound of those fresh cherries, you can whip up 8 cool glasses of this homemade cherry limeade! Thanks to the fresh fruit ingredients, each sweet sip contains vitamin C, potassium, beta-carotene, and more wonderful antioxidants to replenish and recharge on active summer days.
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan (just be sure to use a vegan sugar), vegetarian, and generally food allergy-friendly.
For refined sugar-free homemade cherry limeade, agave nectar makes a good sweetener swap, but honey (non-vegan, but paleo) would also do since you are creating a syrup.
