Strawberry-Honey Agua Fresca

Strawberry Honey Agua Fresca @ NancyC

While thumbing through a summer issue of Real Simple magazine the other day, I found a little note about Agua Fresca and how you could blend watermelon, cucumber, or cantaloupe with lime juice and a little sugar, then strain and serve over ice. That reminded me of an Agua Fresca recipe I made a few years back. It’s made a little differently–I used strawberries and didn’t strain it. I also used honey instead of sugar. 

If you’re not familiar with Agua Fresca, it’s Spanish for “fresh water” and is a type of fruit drink that is served all over Mexico. Made from a combination of fruits, sugar, and water blended together, it’s a refreshing drink for spring and summer. I prefer using honey instead of sugar myself, but you can use either!

STRAWBERRY-HONEY AGUA FRESCA by NancyC              Strawberry Honey Agua Fresca @ NancyC

Makes 4 servings          

  • 2 cups water, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and cut in half
  • 1/8 cup fresh lime juice (or juice from 1 lime), or to taste
  • additional lime slices for garnish (optional)

Blend water and honey in a medium bowl or other container, stirring until honey dissolves. Place strawberries in blender and process until smooth. Add honey-water mixture and lime juice to blender and process all ingredients together until well-blended. Pour into glasses right from the blender or put in a pitcher (you can add ice if you like) and serve.
