How to Make Watermelon Agua Frescas & Get Your Fiber Fix, Too!

Watermelon isn’t just delicious – it’s full of fiber and water. When eaten, the fiber acts like a sponge releasing water into the body as you need it. Watermelon is also rich in nutrients and low in calories. A delicious way to enjoy it is in a drink. Watermelon agua frescas are a popular drink in Mexico and California. Here’s a recipe for the refreshing beverage! 

You’ll need:

  • 4 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • ice

Here's how to make it:

Put the cubed watermelon into a blender with the sugar and lime juice. Blend. Pour over ice to serve. Do not strain before serving or the fiber will be lost! Serves four.

This looks absolutely awesome, Pamela Allen! Can't wait to try it! Love the points you made about watermelon and adult beverages, Nicole DeAvilla, Donna John, Chef Gigi Gaggero! LOL!

I think they would be good with either a jigger of vodka or tequila for a cocktail version.

You could add 1-2 oz. of your favorite spirit.
I would use stevia instead of sugar to save more calories

Try it without adding any sweetener. I sometimes omit it.
