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!
I really enjoyed this Agua fresca. It was perfection. Sweet, light, thin melon water that truly refreshed. I served this agua with lots of ice. Can't wait to make it again. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe Jess4Freedom.
Nice and light tasting simple drink which is healthy with melons as per proper food combining. For me this smoothie is quite thin but it was still smooth, yummy and healthy how I changed it to use local unpasteurised honey (raw) instead of sugar. I just chopped up the c antelope I used and put everything in my blender. The only thing some others might want to do differently is use a little crushed ice in place of some of the water as even though my melon was from the fridge and so was my water it was still not that cold. I would defiantly make this again the same way using cantaloupe and also would like to try it with honeydew.
I got mixed reviews. Two kids didn't like it. One did and my DH liked it. This would be good in summer, when you're hot and thirsty. I had leftover cant. that I had frozen. I thawed it and pureed it (no added water). Then I mixed the sugar and pulp and cooked it on the stove for a few minutes, kind of like a simple syrup concoction. I then strained all the juice into the pitcher. I had about 1/2 C of pulp left. Added water, ice and a little more sugar. I might try again, experimenting with added another flavor (maybe mint?)
