Watermelon Agua Fresca

Serves 4-6  | Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: none

Three simple ingredients. Watermelon is one of the best hydrating foods. The sodium, potassium and glucose are so valuable to our bodies.


  • 1 medium seedless watermelon, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/4-1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3-4 tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup (you may not need if the watermelon is sweet)

Chef Tips

I like add sprigs of fresh herbs like basil, mint or lemon verbena once the juice is made.



Pass the watermelon through a juicer or blend in a mixer. Mix with the lime juice in a pitcher and raw honey or maple syrup if using. Refrigerate until needed.
