My DH is from Mexico and this is a staple there on hot days. The first time I tried it I was hooked (didn't even get sick from the This is a great change for those hot days, just drink and enjoy.


  1. Remove rind from watermelon, and cut into chunks.
  2. In batches, blend water, sugar, watermelon and ice in a blender.
  3. Pour into a large pitcher.

I saw a comment that they didn't like the texture, a step this recipe missed was to strain the pulp after blending so you get pure liquid. What I was taught to do was to simply get a small strainer and place on jar as you put the liquid occasionally remove pulp and you will have Agua de Sandra. Other wise it's delicious.

I'd never tried this before. My kids loved it, but I didn't care for the texture. I'd rather just eat plain watermelon cubes.

Last night, I had my bro pick up a large cup of agua de sandia to drink on my long drive back home. My son saw it, took a few sips and wanted it for himself. It was bedtime for him so I told him that I would make some for him the next day (today). Thankfully, w/your recipe I'm still a mom of my word! My choice of sweetener was Sweet n'Low. I didn't have to use too many packets of it because the watermelon that I had was already really sweet. (We ended up eating watermelon w/our drink. =)
