Agua fresca

What else could make the parching sun more bearable than an ice cold drink? Let’s see if aguas frescas can be our new favorite summer drink!

As I recently have a little time, I had been looking on the internet last week. Trying to find new, interesting tips, inspirational recipes that We have never tasted before, to surprise my family with. Searching for a long time but could not come across any interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this delicious and simple dessert simply by chance on Suncakemom. It looked so tempting

on its photo, it called for urgent actions.

It had been not so difficult to imagine the way it’s made, how it tastes and just how much my hubby will probably like it. Actually, it is extremely simple to please the man when it comes to desserts. Anyhow, I visited the site and then used the step by step instuctions that have been accompanied by superb snap shots of the process. It really makes life less difficult. I can suppose it is a slight effort to shoot pics in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you normally have sticky hands thus i sincerely appreciate the time and effort she put in to build this blogpost .

That being said I am encouraged presenting my own recipe in a similar fashion. Thanks for the idea.

I was tweaking the original recipe create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention that it was an awesome success. They prized the flavor, the consistency and loved getting a treat such as this in the midst of a busy week. They basically wanted more, many more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to double the amount .

This is based on the Agua fresca from SunCakeMom

Peel and slice up the selected fruit. If it contains large seeds then take the seeds out too! Try to choose seasonal fruits as those always taste better apart from being better for the environment and according to some studies for us too.

Add the fruit into a food processor. It may need a bit of water to start.

Process the fruits.

Some people like it with the pulp others like to filter it out. Use a sieve to remove the bits.

Add water to the juice and our very homemade aguas frescas is ready. Traditional recipes can’t resist to add sugar to it but those who are on a low carb diet or living sugar free for a while probably are more then happy with the natural sweetness of the fruit.

Fill the Aguas frescas into a jar or bottle and keep it in the fridge until serving. Don’t forget the ice!
