|Recipe Name:||Aguas Frescas||Submitted by:||Kendall George|
|Preparation Time:||1-10 Minutes|
|Number of Servings:||8|
2 Cup(s) cold water
1 Cup(s) fresh, diced fruit
1/4 Cup(s) sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) fresh-squeezed lime juice
In a blender combine all the ingredients and blend on high until completely smooth. Pour through a fine sieve into a pitcher. Adjust sugar to taste. We actually put in a bit more than a 1/4 cup, but less than 1/3 cup. Also, garnishing with fresh mint is nice.
You can use just about any kind of fruit to make this drink. We like to use watermelon. This is an especially good use for a “bad” watermelon. When I say bad, I don’t mean rotten. But you know how you sometimes get a watermelon and it is too white or grainy. Well rather than throwing it we redeem the thing by turning it into a delicious and refreshing beverage.
