Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca

It’s okay, summer’s not quite over yet! If you’re not ready for pumpkin spice, whip up a watermelon agua fresca. Agua fresca is pretty much just fruit, lime juice, and sweetener, blended into a icy, frothy concoction. It’s cool and sweet, exotic and easy. You can make agua fresca with most fruits, but I love the tang of the watermelon and the aggressive freshness of the mint.

Note: the ingredients below make two servings of agua fresca, but this recipe is easily doubled.


  • 4 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey or agave syrup
  • Fresh mint, to garnish


Blend the watermelon to a liquid in a food processor or blender. Add the lime juice and honey. Pour over tall glasses full of ice, and garnish with mint. Sip slowly on a patio. 

If you’re also a drinks person like me, you might enjoy an Orange Berry Infusion, or perhaps a Mojito Mocktail. The more drinks, the better. Enjoy!
