I have never really been a big fan of drinking juice as is because of how sweet they are so I have always watered them down or added mineral/sparkling water to them for a slightly less sweet taste and added fizz. When I first discovered agua fresca years ago at the Fiesta celebration in the town I grew up in I fell in love. Light, fruity and not too sweet. My kind of drink.

The flavor combinations are endless and many times its a solitary fruit that makes up the agua fresca, pineapple agua fresca is my fave but adding in mango takes in to a whole new level of deliciousness. Its my favorite as well. I love doing a combo of two or three fruits and some lime juice to add that hint of sour.

Watermelon is another fruit I love using to make agua fresca. I love using strawberries too. Agua fresca is traditionally made with adding in sugar to the drink and since I prefer it to be less sweet I usually wait until the end of making the recipe to add a little sweetener in, if needed. Depending on the sweetness of the fruits I use.

I always make a big batch of agua fresca to last me a week. I will fill up a big glass or jar and sometimes top with fizzy water if I am feeling fancy that day. I am not a soda drinker at all but I still love a little fizz and when I was pregnant I always added in fizzy water to drinks.

This is my version of the beverage with using a little simple syrup rather than adding in granulated sugar to the mixture. Either way works.

Often times when I make a batch of agua fresca I will make popsicles out of some of it. Just fill molds and freeze. Easy peasy and just as refreshing and delicious. Pretty sure I have about 10 different flavors of popsicles in my freezer right now. My kids love them as much as I do and we eat about 2-3 a day in summer. Summertime is the best. I would live an endless summer if I could. For endless agua fresca and popsicles.

You can puree the juice all the way or leave some larger chunks of the fruit in the agua fresca. However you like it – there is no wrong way!
