Watermelon-Strawberry Agua Fresca is a refreshing and fruity beverage that combines the flavors of watermelon and strawberries. Here is the recipe for this delectable beverage:
- 4 cups watermelon, seeded and cubed
- 1 cup strawberries, hulled and halved
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 teaspoons of your preferred sweetener, such as honey
- Ice cubes
- Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
- In a blender, combine the watermelon, strawberries, lime juice, and honey (if using). Blend until smooth and well combined.
- Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness by adding more honey if desired. Blend again to incorporate.
- Over a pitcher or big bowl, place a strainer with fine mesh. Pour the blended mixture through the strainer to remove any pulp or seeds. Press the mixture with a spoon or spatula to extract all the liquid.
- Discard any solids left in the strainer, and transfer the strained agua fresca to the refrigerator to chill for about 1 hour.
- When ready to serve, fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the chilled Watermelon-Strawberry Agua Fresca over the ice.
- Garnish with fresh mint leaves if desired.
- Stir gently and enjoy the refreshing Watermelon-Strawberry Agua Fresca!
This beverage is best enjoyed immediately while it’s cold. You can also make a larger batch and keep it refrigerated for a day or two, although it’s best to consume it fresh for optimal flavor.
