What else could make the parching sun more bearable than an ice cold drink? Let’s see if aguas frescas can be our new favorite summer drink!

As I currently have some time, I was looking on the internet yesterday. Looking to find fresh, interesting ideas, inspiring dishes that I have never used before, to astonish my loved ones with. Looking for a long time yet couldn’t discover too many interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came across this yummy and easy dessert simply by chance. It seemed so delicious on its image, that called for quick actions.

It had been simple enough to imagine how it is made, how it tastes and just how much my husband is going to like it. Actually, it is quite easy to delight him when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I got into the page: Suncakemom and simply used the comprehensive instuctions that have been accompanied by nice snap shots of the operation. It just makes life much easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a effort to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you will often have sticky hands so I genuinely appreciate the effort and time she devote for making this post .

Having said that I am empowered to present my own formulas in the same way. Thanks for the concept.

I was fine tuning the main formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to say it had been a great outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They quite simply wanted even more, a lot more. Hence the next occasion I’m not going to make the same mistake. I am going to twin the volume .

Peel and slice up the selected fruit. If it contains large seeds then take the seeds out too! Try to choose seasonal fruits as those always taste better apart from being better for the environment and according to some studies for us too.

Add the fruit into a food processor. It may need a bit of water to start.

Process the fruits.

Some people like it with the pulp others like to filter it out. Use a sieve to remove the bits.

Add water to the juice and our very homemade aguas frescas is ready. Traditional recipes can’t resist to add sugar to it but those who are on a low carb diet or living sugar free for a while probably are more then happy with the natural sweetness of the fruit.

Fill the Aguas frescas into a jar or bottle and keep it in the fridge until serving. Don’t forget the ice!
