Agua Frescas

Agua Frescas is Spanish for “Fresh Water”. It is a sweet drink of water, fresh fruit juice, sugar and fresh fruit.

They come in many different flavors but the most popular are Watermelon, Strawberry or Horchata.IMG_0037

There are a lot of places you can get agua fresca around here – they sell them at super markets, restaurants, swap meets, outside a random place… you get the idea.

Today my brother, Michael, bought me one. A hot day and an agua fresca make an excellent pair :)


This drink was packed full of fruit, I don’t think I could really tell them all apart – there was banana, apple. pear, mango and plum, maybe more…IMG_0045

Digging the fruit out with a spoon is one of the best parts because it has soaked up the juice :)

I’m going to come up with a recipe for agua fresca for those of you who don’t live in an area surrounded by yummy Mexican treats. But for now you can fawn over my refreshment.IMG_0044

Lunch with my agua fresca – sandwich, chips and strawberries. IMG_0033


After lunch I went to see Despicable Me with the fam. I had a few handfuls of communal popcorn and a few hard candies. 


Dinner was leftovers from WF and now I’m going in for a small something because I ate three hours ago (early bird special?) and am hungry again.

See you in the morning :)
