Who knew water could be so tasty?!
Remember that beauty from yesterday?
Here she is again.
I just love the contrast of those colors.
is was in that glass.
Agua fresca is to Mexico what lemonade is to America. This is a cool, refreshing drink that goes down way to easily.
Like, I blended 3/4 of a watermelon and drank the whole thing… in one sitting.
Yeah, that kinda of “way to easily.”
This was my first time making it and it is now officially my favorite summer drink. It was insanely delicious and if you don’t have watermelon in your house, you need to go to the store, RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT, and get one so you can make this drink.
Trust me on this one.
The neat thing about this recipe is that you can use just about any fruit you want. Simply adjust the water/fruit ratio to suit your liking (especially if you choose a denser fruit).
2 cups coconut water
4 cups diced watermelon (seeds removed)
2 Tbsp lime juice
4 tsp sugar
Place all ingredients in your blender and hit go!
Variations: You can substitute plain water instead of coconut water if you’d like. Coconut water is high in potassium (which hydrate you) and antioxidants (fight the bad stuff in your body). You can use any fruit you’d like as well as any sweetener you’d like. I actually used two packets of splenda instead of sugar and it was just the right amount of sweet for me.
Tips: This best served cold, so you can add ice to the blender or serve over ice. Another option is to freeze some of your fruit ahead of time. I did this and it worked beautifully (and deliciously).
One last picture, to hold you over until your blender stops.
