watermelon agua fresca

ever since my last tasty heist, i have been day dreaming about watermelon agua fresca.  you take watermelon, mash it all up, add a little bit of sweetener, a little bit of citrus and bam. you are done… pour it in a glass and sip the goodness of watermelon; it is like cold, refreshing sunshine in your cup.

i have never attempted agua fresca before, so for reference, i found a recipe/guide on whole foods website to follow as a guide. their recipe served 6-8, my batch was much smaller and instead of using lime, i used orange and didn’t add mint (only because i don’t have any on hand. otherwise, i think it would be a delicious addition).

sipping on my agua fresca while husband finishes up laundry has been a great way to wrap up this sunday funday.

sweetly,
faith
