My family lives on this simple watermelon drink. I'm calling it a watermelon agua fresca, but it's really not - it's better. Mexican aguas frescas typically contain added sugar, but to me watermelon is sweet enough. My version is pure and plain, just two ingredients: seedless watermelon and fresh lime juice.
This watermelon juice is the ultimate thirst-quencher after anything sweaty: a workout, a long walk, cleaning out the closet, weeding the garden. We buy adorable small seedless watermelons at Costco year-round, but they're sweetest in the summer. I hope no one ever discovers that watermelon causes cancer, because at the rate I put them away, I'd be a goner for sure.
Watermelon agua fresca
Watermelon, a squeeze of lime, and a whirl in the blender: That's all you need for this ultra-refreshing drink.
- 4 cups seedless watermelon flesh, very cold, cut into 1-inch chunks
- juice of 1 fresh lime
Put the chunks of watermelon and the lime juice into a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
