Strawberry Honey Agua Fresca

Agua Fresca, Spanish for “fresh water,” is a type of fruit drink that is served all over Mexico. Made from a combination of fruits, sugar, and water blended together, it’s a refreshing drink for spring and summer. I decided to try this Strawberry Agua Fresca that I found at myrecipes–but instead of using sugar, I made it with honey. You can use sugar if you want, but I thought honey would be a little healthier. My version is a little sweeter than the original, but it’s not super-sweet–I think it’s just right!

STRAWBERRY HONEY AGUA-FRESCA by NancyCreative, adapted from myrecipes.com

Makes 4 cups

  • 2 cups water, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 cups hulled strawberries, cut in half
  • 1/8 cup fresh lime juice (or juice from 1 lime), or to taste
  • additional lime slices for garnish (optional)

Combine water and honey in a medium bowl or other container, stirring until honey dissolves. Place strawberries in blender and process until smooth. Add honey-water mixture and lime juice to blender and process all ingredients together until well-blended. Pour into glasses right from the blender or put in a pitcher (you can add ice if you like) and serve.
