Cool ready made Fresh Watermelon Agua Fresca Drink.

Nickel Free Watermelon Agua Fresca

On hot summer days I love to make this fresh and cool nickel free summer drink. My partner calls it the “drink of summer.” It’s really simple and only requires a blender, watermelon, water and lime.

The recipe:

  • 1 large watermelon cut up into slices.
  • 1 lime juiced.
  • Fill ½ the blender with cold water
  • Some ice cubes.

First I fill up the blender with watermelon. Next I add the lime juice. I like to zest the lime prior to when I juice it and include the lime zest from the peel. However some people don’t like the texture and exclude the zest.

If you don’t like lime, you can substitute ½ a peeled cucumber. I fill ½ of the blender with cold water and then add a couple ice cubes. Lastly I use the blender features of “chop,” “blend” and “puree,” to make sure that everything is mixed thoroughly.

I hope you enjoy this refreshing cool summer  and nickel free drink!
