Strawberry-Cucumber Agua Fresca
This weekend we went Strawberry picking. After about an hour of picking we ended up with a little over 10 lbs of bright red sweet ripe strawberries.
Needless to say over the next few days, I’ll be posting a lot of strawberry recipes!
In Spanish, “Agua Fresca” means ‘Cool Water’, it’s a cool drink simply made of fruit, water, and sugar. I’ve had them with a variety of different fruits, but one of my favorites is strawberry. I thought adding the cucumber would give it a more rounded, softer flavor.
Here is my recipe for this Refreshingly Cool Strawberry Cucumber Agua Fresca:
Makes 1 quart
1 pint Strawberries
1 Medium Cucumber, peeled
1 TBLSP Sugar
3 cups of water
1. Puree the Cucumbers, Strawberries, and Sugar in a blender or food processor.
2. Strain the puree, pouring it into pitcher. Add 3 cups of water. Mix well.
3. Allow to cool in the fridge. Serve with Ice cubes, and garnish with some sliced Strawberries.
