Nothing beats a cool, refreshing drink on a hot summer day. This refreshing watermelon basil agua fresca is a light and healthy drink to prepare for the kids, as opposed to offering sugar-laden fruit juices. It’s packed with fresh, sweet watermelon, earthy basil, and naturally sweetened with raw honey.
I recently came across THIS fellow mom blogger’s post and was intrigued by her recipe, and not to mention her mouthwatering-worthy pics! Lucky me we had scores of fresh, homegrown watermelon in our garden to choose from to prepare this healthy fruit drink for my own family.
Agua fresca (fresh water) is a Latin American drink made with water, a small amount of sweetener, and fresh fruit. Some common ingredients used to prepare this refreshing drink include; cantaloupe, mango, guava, lemon or lime juice, and fresh herbs such as mint….or in this case, fresh basil from our garden.
