Watermelon Agua Fresca Recipe

  • Fruit: We use fresh watermelon and strawberries for this recipe. You can also use fresh or frozen fruit. Frozen fruit makes the agua frescas super cold and refreshing and extra rich tasting.
  • Sweetener: We use a little agave to sweeten things, but you could use granulated sugar or honey if you prefer, or leave the sweetener out altogether.
  • Lime Juice: Fresh lime juice adds a nice flavor to the mix. 
  • Water: Serve with lots of ice and sparkling water.
  • Garnish:  We like to add slices of jalapeno to a pitcher of Watermelon Agua Frescas for a little spice (which goes nicely with the sweetness of the fruit). Garnish each drink with slices of lime and jalapeno or strawberries.

How To Make Watermelon Agua Fresca

This Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca recipe comes together in about 5 minutes start to finish. If you want to add a little spiciness to the mix, add sliced rounds of jalapeno to the pitcher of watermelon agua fresca. Let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour for the added flavor. The jalapeno flavor adds a really nice touch.

  1. Add chopped fruit, lime juice, sweetener and water to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl to strain out all the little seeds and fiber. 
  3. Add ice to individual glasses and pour the strained liquids into each glass. 
  4. Garnish with strawberries and slices of lime and jalapeno slices.

A red and white bowl filled with fresh strawberries sits on a wood cutting board. Next to the bowl sits a knife and sliced strawberries and jalapeno. A window with white window panes is behind the bowl of strawberries.
