Stuffed Poblano Peppers, Pico de Gallo, and a Limeade substitution question

I had the most delicious Mexican, almost-completely-vegan lunch today.

To drink I used a Brazilian recipe for limeade that I've known for a
Place in a blender:
1 lime
1/4 cup of sugar
1.5 tbsp of sweetened condensed milk
1.5 cups of water
3 icecubes
Strain, and drink

What could I substitute for the sweetened condensed milk and the sugar?  And in what amounts?  I like how the sweetened condensed milk makes the drink thick and frothy, but I'm in the process of transitioning to a completely vegan diet.  I know there are substitutions in the memories, but I was just wondering if anyone knew anything that would go particularly well with limes and in what amounts for this recipe.
