One of the most refreshing ways to enjoy fresh fruit is in an Agua Fresca, a beverage made with pureed fruit, water, a touch of sugar and maybe some lime juice or herbs.
One of our favorites for a hot day is the cucumber and lime Agua Fresca!
blend until smooth:
4 cups of chopped cucumbers
2-4 cups of water
add another 8-10 cups of water
1/4–1/2 cup fresh lime juice and a pinch of salt or mint to taste
