What is watermelon agua fresca?

Watermelon Agua Fresca is a non-alcoholic drink made of fresh fruit and sparkling water. Some recipes include added sugar. Our watermelon agua fresca recipe is made with no sugar. 

Refreshing Agua Fresca

I must be living under a log in the middle of a forest because I had never heard of agua fresca until today. This is the most refreshing summer drink.

Like actually refreshing. Not like lemonade, which tastes delicious, but leaves you thirsty. Agua fresca actually quenches your thirst and leaves you hydrated. I should know because I just drank the entire batch and am feeling very hydrated. Ahhhh.

The sweetness really depends on the watermelon you use, so make sure your watermelon is ripe. If not, you can add a little bit of pure maple syrup to sweeten the agua fresca. It’s all up to your taste buds.

I should also mention this recipe is insanely easy. I’m pretty sure my 3-year-old could do it all by himself – at least the blender part. Go here to check out more cooking recipes for kids.

How to make this watermelon agua fresca recipe?

All you need for watermelon lime agua fresca is watermelon and lime sparkling water. You cut up the watermelon in large chunks and blend it with the sparkling water.

The hardest part is waiting for it to chill in the fridge. I will admit, I drank mine at room temperature. I couldn’t beat to wait. It’s better cold, but not an absolute requirement.

I hear you can also make this drink with cantaloupe – that’s my next mission. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Until then, let me know how your watermelon agua fresca turns out.
