  • 1 Pineapple Whole
  • 2 TBSP Agave Nectar
  • 4 Cups Water separated
  • ¼ Cup Fresh Mint Leaves washed thoroughly

Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple.
Remove all of the skins, standing the pineapple up on its flat bottom. Remove any leftover “eyes” (aka the dark brown spots).
Cut ½” thick rings by laying down the pineapple on its side. Lay the rings flat down and slice medium-sized chunks.

Add the pineapple chunks, 3 cups of cold water, the fresh mint leaves, and agave nectar into the blender.
Blend until smooth, about 60-seconds.
Pour the blended pineapple water into a pitcher. (NOTE: An authentic agua fresca is not strained, but I highly recommend straining it to avoid the thickness of the purée if you’re not used to it)
Add remaining 1 cup of water. Stir.
Taste the pineapple water for sweetness and add more if you prefer.
Pour immediately over ice or keep in the fridge for 30-minutes to cool.
Keep in the fridge for 2-3 days maximum.
