Mango Agua Fresca

Serves 2
Time 5 min
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. Inspired by Whole Planet Foundation® microcredit client recipes.
Ingredients
  • 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
Method

In a blender, combine mango and 1 1/2 cups cold water and blend until smooth.

Pour through a strainer into ice-filled glasses.

Stir in lime juice and agave.

Garnish with lime and mint, and serve.
