Mango Agua Fresca

Mango Agua Fresca

Serves 2

This light, refreshing drink popularized in Central America is a terrific thirst quencher on a hot summer day. Agua fresca (Spanish for "fresh water") uses more water than a smoothie would in order to flavor the water and not just purée the fruit.

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar or honey, more or less to taste
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 mint sprigs, for garnish
