Watermelon & Mint Agua Fresca

Watermelon & Mint Agua Fresca

Watermelon & Mint Agua Fresca is simply blended watermelon served up with a pinch of sugar, lime juice, and fresh mint leaves over ice. This delicious beverage is perfect for a hot summer day. And with fresh, sweet watermelon, you don’t even need to add the sugar.

We recommend buying a seedless watermelon and using a mesh strainer. You can use a blender, food processor, or immersion blender to make your watermelon juice

Ingredients

Watermelon & Mint Agua Fresca

  • 1 whole watermelon, seeded & cubed
  • 1-2 limes
  • Ice cubes
  • Mint leaves for serving
  • Optional: Sugar and plain soda water

Directions

  1. Break down your watermelon on a sturdy surface, placing a slightly damp kitchen towel under your cutting board to prevent it from sliding around. Use a serrated knife for an easier cut through the watermelon rind.
  2. Remove any seeds and cube the watermelon, placing the cubes into a large bowl.
  3. Gradually blend the watermelon cubes in batches with your blender or processor. Once blended, transfer the juice through a mesh strainer into a pitcher or other serving container to catch the remaining seeds.
  4. Continue this process until all of your watermelon has been juiced.
  5. For serving, pour 8-10 ounces of watermelon juice into a tall glass.
  6. Cut the lime in quarters and squeeze one or two quarters into the glass.
  7. Add a few ice cubes and 1-2 fresh mint leaves.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

For added sweetness, you can add a teaspoon of granulated sugar to the glass. Or you can top off the juice with soda water for a bubbly drink.

Mint Chocolate Scones that are vegan and allergen-friendly. These scones are low in sugar and absolutely scrumptious when served with coffee or tea. Serve them fresh when hot and you can store them at room temperature for 2-3 days in the refrigerator for 5 days. If storing in the refrigerator, you can reheat them in the oven at a low temperature for 5-10 minutes or in the microwave for 15 seconds.

If you are gluten-free, substitute for gluten-free flour

Ingredients

Mint Chocolate Scones

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg replacer or 1 Tbs flax meal mixed with 2 Tbs warm water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 Tbs cold smart balance or other vegan butter
  • 2 tsp fresh mint leaves, chopped*
  • 1/4 cup allergen-friendly chocolate chips

  4. On top of that, add in the 8 Tbs of cold vegan butter.
  5. Using your hands or a pastry blender, mix the wet ingredients into the dry. The dough should be semi-firm but easily shapeable and not too sticky. If the dough is very dry, add a splash of oat milk or other non-dairy milk as needed. Fold in the mint and chocolate chips by hand.
  6. Once well combined, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form it together into a log about 1 1/2 – 2 inches in height.
  7. Use a pastry cutter or knife to cut out triangles along the length of the dough log.

  9. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, rotating, and baking for 10-12 more minutes or until the scones are lightly golden.

  11. Serve with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
