Watermelon Lime Agua Fresca

Summer’s not over just yet and with lots more beach days and long weekends coming up I thought I’d share one of my favorite summery drinks. Just a few ingredients and something cool and refreshing for your next BBQ or summer picnic! Watermelon is very hydrating and cleansing keeping you cool in these hot summer days of August.

A cool and refreshing drink for any summer day

Watermelon-Lime Agua Fresca
What would summer be without watermelon? This is a bright and thirst quenching drink from Mexico.

(Fills one blender)
2 pounds seedless watermelon (1/8th of a good-size watermelon)
1 cup filtered water
2 teaspoons lime juice
Mint leaves
(optional 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup but I think this is sweet enough!)

Place watermelon, water and lime juice in blender, sweeten to taste and serve over ice with some chopped up mint leaves.
