This agua fresca is SO incredibly refreshing. It’s not super sweet and if you’re a fruit lover, it hits the spot. It is more thirst-quenching than lemonade because it’s just so light and lacks any tartness or sugary aftertaste.
It’s the best thing ever on a hot summer day.
And can we talk about the COLOR?! It’s so bright and vibrant and wonderful. We like to use more peaches than pineapple – the pineapple can be overwhelming and take away from that sweet summer peach flavor.
It’s like you’re drinking peach pie in a glass! But… you know, fruit. And water. Fruit water. With mint and lime!
3 ripe peaches, peeled and cubed
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
2 cups water
3 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons simple syrup
1 cup frozen peach slices
lime slices for serving
Add the peaches, pineapple and 1 cup of water to a blender and blend until completely pureed. Using a fine mesh sieve, pour puree through into a large bowl or measuring cup, using a spoon to press the last of the liquid out when you get to the end. Combine the juice with the remaining water, lime juice and simple syrup in a large pitcher. Taste and add more syrup if desired. Chill until cold. Before serving, add the frozen peach slices (to act as your ice cubes!) along with a few ice cubes if you'd like it super cold.
Serve over crushed ice the extra lime slices and mint.
thx to How sweet it is
