Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If using a sugar substitute in this recipe, don’t do an even exchange for the sugar. You probably will only need half a cup of sugar substitute.
  • For more watermelon flavor and a thicker drink,  add some extra watermelon cubes before blending.
  • You may see some foam in your watermelon agua Fresca, you can absolutely keep it how it is but some people like to remove it so that it has a nicer presentation. 
  • Be sure to start with chilled ingredients. This allows for a nice refreshing drink once it is blended for you and your guests.  
  • You can make this drink with other types of fruits. Some of our other favorites are mango and pineapple. 
  • It is best if you use a ripe watermelon that allows for immense amounts of flavor. If you find that your watermelon is not as sweet as you would like, add more sugar to the blender 1 Tablespoon at a time. 
  • For a little bit of a tart flavor add a squeeze of lime to the blender as well. 
  • This is best enjoyed right away, but can be stored in the fridge until later.
