Watermelon Green Tea Agua Fresca

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
serves 4-6
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!

  1. I love watermelons. This drink (watermelon - green tea - lime) makes my mouth watery. It is getting too hot in here and I really need that kind of beverage.
