Strawberry Agua Fresca

Strawberry Agua Fresca

Agua Fresca is just a fancy name for fresh water. And the combination of Strawberry and Lemon juice is … ***long whistles*** amazing!

You don’t need a recipe to tell you to puree some strawberries and squeeze some lemon into a jar and sweeten it up to your liking. But in case you didn’t know or haven’t ever tried this combination, you must drop everything you’re doing to go grab this refreshing drink!

Fresh fruit waters, or Aguas de Frutas, made with pureed fruit are a common drink all over Mexico. This recipe is extremely flavorful and refreshing, especially when fresh strawberries are in season. 🙂

P.S: If you’re ambitious, you can grow your own Strawberries! 🙂
