Take advantage of the summer fruits and try out this refreshing Pineapple Mango Agua Fresca recipe! It's quick and easy, and great to have on hand for those hot summer days, any BBQ, dinner party, or picnic!
Add the mango, pineapple, mint leaves, lemon juice, 1 cup water, vanilla extract (if using), and raw sugar/maple syrup (if using) into a blender.
Blend on high until completely pureed and no pieces remain.
Taste and adjust with additional lemon juice, fruit, and/or sugar if needed (remember that you will be diluting this for the final drink).
Filter the pureed mixture through a mesh or fine sieve to remove any remaining fiber or pulp (alternatively you can skip this step if you prefer unfiltered agua fresca).
Add the filtered fruit pure into a tall pitcher. Add 3 cups cold water and mix. Feel free to add more or less water depending on preference for how concentrated you prefer the agua fresca.
Serve over ice or store in the fridge and enjoy for 2-3 days.
Agua fresca is very forgiving, so feel free to adjust ingredients. You can use other fruit combinations, different herbs, and make it filtered or unfiltered.
