Strawberry-Honey Agua Fresca

While thumbing through a magazine the other day, I found a little note about Agua Fresca and how you could blend watermelon, cucumber, or cantaloupe with lime juice and a little sugar, then strain and serve over ice. That reminded me of an Agua Fresca recipe I made a few years back. It’s made a little differently–—I used strawberries and didn’t strain it. I also used honey instead of sugar.

This Strawberry-Honey Agua Fresca is so refreshing! If you’re not familiar with Agua Fresca, it’s Spanish for “fresh water” and is a type of fruit drink that is served all over Mexico. Made from a combination of fruits, sugar, and water blended together, it’s a yummy beverage for spring and summer!

    Love agua Fresca! I will have to try this recipe. Honey instead of sugar sounds so refreshing I also use the strawberries in my lemonade. I never strain seeds but I’m sure others might. I also use the juice from the watermelon in my tea or lemonade or plain water.
