agua frescaThere's nothing more delicious on a warm spring or summer day than the taste of cucumber agua fresca. Add the touch of mint and you will be happily hydrated with a drink that is also low in calories and perfect if you're watching your waistline. Hope you and yours love it as much as I do!

This refreshing drink is one I love to make for my guests. I typically make double the amount to serve a crowd, but it's usually gone so fast, next time... I'm making triple the amount! 

Agua fresca: cucumber, mint and lemon
Serves: 4

3 medium sized cucumbers
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 bunch of mint
agave syrup

1.  Cut the ends of the cucumbers (discard of the ends), then cut the cucumbers in a few pieces each and put them in the blender. Blend well for about 1 minute. 
2. Add lemon juice.
3. Add mint.
4. Add agave syrup to taste.
5. Blend for another minute.
