Ingredients

  • Strawberries. Use fresh or frozen strawberries. I usually use frozen strawberries for two reasons. With frozen strawberries, I can make this drink any time I want and faster. Second, frozen strawberries give the perfect consistency and temperature.
  • Lime or lemon. A bit of acid brings brightness to this agua fresca. If you want to make it more Mexican, use limes.
  • Sugar. Use white sugar or cane sugar.
