Description of Sweet Lime Juice


A squeeze of lime has virtually minimal calories, and is a delicious drink. Whether in soft drinks, cocktails or just alone - it is truly a delight. To juice it up, cut the sweet lime fruits into halves. Now squeeze each halfed sweet lime piece of fruit using a squeezer. Filter the squeezed juice with a strainer. Add sugar as required. Drink it fresh or refrigerate it for a while.

How to Select
Choose sweet limes that have smoothly textured skin and are firm and heavy for their size. These will have higher juice content than those that are either spongy or lighter in weight. Avoid those that have soft spots or traces of mold.
