This weekend was a scorcher! Not that I am complaining, because that's summer, but we managed to keep hydrated with some chilled drinks, which brings me to this Honeydew Agua Fresca recipe.
Agua fresca is a Mexican fruit drink that is served at many festivals, sporting events and street fairs in California. I love that the Honeydew Agua Fresca it is really refreshing and also a great source of vitamin C and Potassium, all while tasting great!
I like to make it with crushed ice, but you can use ice cubes too!
What is Aqua Fresca?
Aqua Fresca, translates to "Cool Water" in Spanish. It is made always with fresh fruit and a little bit of sweetener. My dear grandmother used to make the fresca for us when we visited her home.
Agua Fresca is many times seen at sporting events and carnivals because it really quenches your thirst when you have been out in the sun.
These refreshing drinks are very popular in Mexico and the flavors are endless.
You may remember that I shared my Watermelon Agua Fresca recipe a while back, so I thought it was a good time to share this easy honeydew agua fresca recipe. We went to the movies to try to keep cool and I also did a little crafting with my mother, which I will share soon.
This week was short due to the 4th of July holiday, and all I can say is that I would love more weeks like that. Imagine if our weekends were 3 days long and our weeks were 4 days long....I think it would make for a happier place, just saying!
Anyways, back to one of my favorite flavors - honeydew!
It is truly one of the most refreshing fruits and it is in season right now. When choosing honeydew melons, look for those that are pale yellow to light lemon in color.
They will be juicy and green on the inside. honeydew juice is naturally sweet and delicious!
Once you use honeydews to make agua fresca, you just might become addicted!
