To make watermelon agua fresca you just need fresh watermelon, sugar, some mint leaves and water. Instead of water you can also use coconut water.
You just need to peel, remove the seeds and coarsely chop the melon. Combine chopped melon, sugar to taste and water in a blender jar. Blend until smooth and serve with loads of ice cubes 🙂
I have added few mint leaves for flavor. Adding mint leaves lends a very refreshing taste and flavor to this drink. Instead of mint leaves you can fresh basil leaves or even lemon juice.
I have used organic dark green variety here which is more sweet and juicy. Always use tender and fresh water melon. If the melon is very matured it will be dry and you will have to add more water while making the drink.
If your watermelon is very sweet, you don’t have to add any sugar in this recipe. But while making for guests or kids, adding a dash of sugar makes the drink very tasty. i have added just three teaspoons organic raw sugar for three servings. You can easily skip it or add more. You can also use coconut sugar, palm sugar or regular sugar.
For a detox drink that is more flavorful and healthy you can use coconut water instead of plain water. Also the quantity of water or coconut water is totally variable. You can add more or less water as per your liking. I usually make this drink a bit thin so use more water.
How To Make Watermelon Agua Fresca
