I recently saw a recipe for agua fresca in our weekly flyer from Aldi Market. This is a light and refreshing Mexican fruit beverage and I thought it would be a perfect drink to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with! I just knew I had to try it...but, with a little different spin.
I had some frozen watermelon chunks in the freezer that needed using up, a batch of iced green tea in the fridge and a little lime juice hanging around, so I adapted their recipe for what I had on hand. I think I've found my new summer drink! The fruit drink, when blended on 'whip', developed a creamy, frothy and delicious 'head' when poured into our glasses. What a lovely color! I have just one word for this drink ~ YUMMY!!!
Watermelon Green Tea Agua Fresca
adapted from this recipe
- 4 cups green tea, chilled
- 2 cups frozen seedless watermelon chunks
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1/4 cup honey, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water (or sweetener of choice ~ skip the warm water if you want, I just think it makes it easier to disperse the honey when blending)
Place all ingredients in the blender and whirl away until smooth and frosty. Serve in a pretty glass. Enjoy!
