The awesome thing is limes are very inexpensive and easy to come by – thus making lime smoothies all the more inviting, but besides a delicious smoothie how else can I use limes?

Ways to Use Lime

Do you ever feel as though your limes are underutilized?

Meaning, you buy lemons and limes, and love them both, but end up squeezing your lemons into lemonade only to turn around and find the limes shriveled up in your fruit basket slowly rotting.

Ever had this problem?

We have….so below are a few ideas we have come up with it help you find ways to use your limes! Enjoy!

Dressing – you can make all kinds of dressings out of this fruit. One of our favorites is using olive oil with lime juice (ratio 2 to 1) add a little salt and pepper maybe some basil or mint to taste


Guacamole – to keep your avocados from turning that nasty brown color squeeze some lime juice over it, and that should do the trick

Lower Calorie – instead of putting butter on your corn try lime juice, it will add a nice kick that you won’t forget. You can also squeeze some lime juice into some sparkling water in place of a soft drink.

Deodorize – time to get rid of “that” smell out of your garage disposal. Cut a lime into small wedges, then simple toss into your disposal and let it do the work

Storing Lime Juice

You can store fleshy squeezed lime juice in the refrigerator for up to a week in a tightly sealed container.

Also you can store your fresh juiced limes in the freezer in ice blocks, then (once frozen) pop them out and put them in a zip-lock bag to be put in the freezer. What makes this fun is you can your “lime cubes” in a glass of water for some added flavor!

Health Benefits of Lime

Most people don’t think of lime as being nutritious, but actually the health benefits of lime are very numerous.

Let’s examine some in detail below…

Digestion – when you think of limes you get this irresistible taste which immediately floods you mouth with water (or digestive saliva) and sending digestive aid to your stomach. The fragrant oils that can be extracted for a lime help t o stimulate the digestive by increasing digestive juices

Eye Care – the antioxidant properties that come from the vitamin C help to protect the eye, and the flavonoids help to protect it from infections
