WHAT IS AGUA FRESCA?
FRUIT: Such as watermelon, mango, pineapple and strawberry.
WATER: use a filtered, drinking water.
SUGAR: feel free to swap the white sugar with any kind of sweetener you prefer.
All peels and seeds should be removed from whatever fruit you are using. Give the fruit a rough chop to help the blending process.
BLEND UNTIL SMOOTH
Add the water, sugar and fruit to the blender and blend until smooth.
STRAIN & SERVE
Pour the drink through a fine mesh strainer to get rid of any excess pulp. Then serve the drink over ice.
Add a squeeze of lemon or lime to any of the drinks for a burst of fresh citrus flavor. Some berries, like blueberries and blackberries don’t blend and strain well for this particular recipe.
