watermelon agua fresca

watermelon agua fresca


  • 1/4 watermelon, rind removed & chopped
  • 1 c. water
  • 4-5 sprigs fresh mint leaves


I lived with my aunt & uncle for a summer when they lived in Mexico and my aunt would make agua fresca every day with melon, papaya, oranges, etc. It was so tasty, so I decided to make my own with some leftover watermelon we had. YUM! Perfect to cool down on a hot day.


1. Remove rind from watermelon and chop into uniform pieces
2. Put melon in blender with water and mint leaves; blend well. If you want your agua fresca super cold, add a few ice cubes or refrigerate the watermelon beforehand.
3. Strain, or leave pulp in if you like pulp in your fruit beverages.
4. Enjoy on a hot summer day!
