Watermelon Agua Fresca Recipe

Dr. Axe  – Are you in need of a refreshing drink to cool down with this summer? You’ve got to try this fruity, sparkling Watermelon Agua Fresca.

Agua fresca, or “fresh water,” is a popular drink in Mexico and throughout Central America. They’re made by combining water with sugar and fruits to create a sweet and tasty beverage. My version uses cooling benefit-rich watermelon and honey to keep it free from refined sugars. When mixed with sparkling water, the result is a fizzy beverage you’ll want to drink all summer long.

Start by blending the watermelon, raw honey and fresh lime juice in a blender until the watermelon is smooth. Mix in the Pellegrino before pouring.

Garnish the drink with lime slices or mint leaves before serving.

Make a big batch of this Watermelon Agua Fresca to keep in the refrigerator for hot nights or for serving at barbecues.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 cups watermelon, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tablespoon raw honey
  • ½ tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup sparkling water
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Blend watermelon, water, honey and lime juice in a blender.
