Agua Fresca

Recipe by LilPinkieJ

Very refreshing drink, very easy to make. It works just as well with Cantaloupe or Honey Dew melons. I've made this recipe with many different types of melon with great results. The grocery store I use has a yearly melon sale in the summer. You can try and buy several types of melons that you normally couldn't get in this area of Wisconsin. The Santa Claus melon has a very mild flavor and light color. I like to use my LaLane juicer.

I was looking for a straight forward agua fresca recipe, and this is it. I made a few modifications: After blending the fruit, I added the water and sugar to the blender carafe. Then I strained the liquid into a pitcher to get a smoother juice. It was delicious! Keep in mind that good fruit makes good agua fresca!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash the melon. If using a blender, add just enough water to blend into a coarse pulp.
  2. Put the pulp in a pitcher. Add the water and the sugar.
  3. Stir vigorously to dissolve the sweetener. Serve chilled.
