Agua Fresca, translated literally means Fresh Water.  It is a refreshingly cooling summertime drink, from Mexico.  The most common flavors are usually pineapple or melon, especially watermelon.  

However, this methodology can be used to make Agua Fresca with just about any fruit. Try making it with mango, peaches, apricots or even cucumber. Add a little mint to the cucumber version. It’s awesome!

To describe the consistency is a little difficult, it is somewhere in between juice and a smoothie. Try this Pineapple Strawberry Agua Fresca version and you won’t be disappointed!

Unlike smoothies, agua fresca is dairy free, so it is a perfect drink for Vegans.

If  you’d like to turn it into a cocktail, you can simply add some tequila. However, this is the perfect alchohol free drink to celebrate #CincoDeMayo
