Mango Agua Fresca

Summer in Texas is hot. Especially when your car AC is out! This sweet, healthy treat is so refreshing and delicious, perfect for warm weather anywhere. 

It's full of fresh fruit juice and the simple syrup can be substituted with agave or honey if you're steering clear of processed sugars! The flavor can be adjusted with more or less water, syrup, or fruit. I made a huge batch with lots of flavor.  It actually might have bordered on mango limeade. Which is totally okay in my book. 

I can't wait to try this with different fruit flavor combinations!

What You'll Need:
(serves 2)
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 freshly squeezed lime
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup*
  • Lime wedge for garnish
What To Do:
Blend mango and water until completely smooth. Strain into a pitcher through a fine mesh strainer. Add lime juice and simple syrup and stir well. Add ice to glasses, pour  juice over and garnish with lime slices and a fancy straw!

*To prepare simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar. Stir over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved and allow to cool.
