Agua De Sandia (Watermelon Water) Recipe

Agua De Sandia (Watermelon Water)

Can’t think of anything more thirst quenching that this on a hot summer day like today – chilled watermelon pureed with water, a squeeze of lime juice over a large glass of ice. Agua fresca is as common in Mexico as ice tea is here in the States. And BONUS, since watermelon is naturally sweet, there’s no need to add any sugar!

Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, lycopene, beta-carotene

and a great choice for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health

benefits, so eat as much as you can, before the summer’s over.

 

Last weekend I spent a few days out in Montauk for a little

family getaway. It’s only about 2 hours away by car (if you

don’t count traffic) but since it’s on the most eastern tip of Long Island, where

all the highways from NYC merge into one road, there’s always

traffic. It’s worth it though – the beaches, lighthouse, restaurants, shopping  – it’s so much fun!

Ingredients

6 cups seedless watermelon cubes

3/4 cup water

4 thin lime slices, for garnish

a few sprigs mint, for garnish

ice

 

Instructions

In the blender combine the watermelon and water and puree until smooth. Pour into a pitcher and garnish with sliced limes and a spring of mint.

To serve, place the ice in each glass and pour the watermelon agua fresca. Garnish each glass with a lime wedge and serve.
