Yemeni Lemonade

Servings : Serves 2

This is sold almost on all street-corners in Aden (Yemen). Vendors with their carts fix this icy cold lemonade fresh as you wait! I’ve honestly never tasted better or more refreshing lemonade anywhere in the world!


  • 2 small green limes, cut them lengthwise into 4 pieces and put them in a blender
  • 500 ml cold flaky icy water...even some ice cubes mixed in is fine
  • 1 tsp. milk powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4-5 tbsp. sugar


Blend together for not more than a minute, if you blend too long it will get bitter….then sieve all the gunk out, taste if sugar is ok, add ice cubes n serve fresh!

Be sure not to over blend the limes coz then your drink will be sour instead of refreshing! This is also best served fresh, as in from the blender, sieve it and add lots of ice cubes and serve!
