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.
