Looking for fun ways to keep yourself and your family hydrated this summer? Try Agua Fresca (or Fresh Water). Blending fresh fruits with water will create a naturally sweet and delicious beverage everyone in your family will enjoy drinking. You can also make Agua Fresca using coconut water for an extra punch of electrolytes.
Basic Agua Fresca: Puree 1 part fruit, with 2 to 3 parts water or coconut water, in a blender. I made watermelon, cantaloupe, and blueberry grape. If you don’t mind some pulp, then drink as-is. Otherwise, you can strain the liquid through cheesecloth or a fine sieve and reserve the pulp for baked goods or smoothies.
Store your Agua Fresca in the refrigerator.
