Watermelon Coconut Agua Fresca is sweet, tart, and thirst-quenching!
While the heat wave is still on, let’s talk about light and cooling beverages to quench your thirst on hot summer days. Watermelon Coconut Agua Fresca is simply made from fresh fruit and water blended up and then sweetened to taste. And it’s so easy to whip up whether you are making two glasses or doubling the recipe to fill a pitcher.
I blend up the drink with coconut water to add more flavor — the result is a fruity, refreshing beverage I know you’ll love!
Watermelon Coconut Agua Fresca does wonder in this summer heat and is perfect for barbecues, picnics, or any outdoor gathering. This is the kind of drink you could make a pitcher of for the whole family to enjoy in the backyard, pack it into a cooler and bring to the beach, or sip on it after workout.
You can even add a splash of rum or vodka and turn it into cocktails for the adults! Don’t say I didn’t tell you. ;)
