I made a pitcher of this the other day when I was craving something cool and sweet. Yes, we’ve had actual summery weather recently, which has been so much fun. We had a bunch of peaches that were about to go bad and a freezer drawer full of strawberries from our berry-picking earlier in the summer.
Though I’d had them at Mexican restaurants, I’d never made agua frescas before. I don’t know why not. It’s really simple—just some fruit and water blended together, with maybe a little sugar.
There are plenty of recipes floating around the web, but I decided a recipe was really more hassle than I needed. I just let the strawberries (between 1 and 2 cups?) soften a little bit, dumped them in the blender with the sliced and peeled peaches (2 cups?), added a little water (maybe a cup?) and blended. I added a teaspoon or two of sugar for the blenderfull, but you’d want to tweak that according to taste and to how sweet the fruit is.
I love smoothies but I found this more refreshing, more of a thirst-quencher. The kids preferred a bit less water for a thick slushy to eat with a spoon.
Cooked anything good lately? Do share.
Have a great weekend!
