"From Cooking Light magazine. Spanish for "fresh water", agua fresca is a refreshing, fruit-infused drink that is served throughout Mexico. Depending on the ripeness of the berries, adjust the amount of sugar for desired sweetness. Frozen strawberries would be fine in this. I like this with 2-3 times the water or seltzer water for a thinner drink. I also increase the sugar. This is great with watermelon puree in place of some of the water too. "

We loved this. We liked to have it a bit thicker with a little less Splenda, having the lime make it just a little bit tart. Super quick to make and easy too. Delicious!

I made this with plain old water and artificial sweetener. I used frozen strawbs and the juice from them thawing out. Tasty beverage.
