Watermelon Agua Frescas: A Delicious Way to Hydrate & Get Your Fiber Fix, Too! by Pamela Allen
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!
- 4 cups cubed watermelon
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
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.
