Aqua fresca translates to ‘fresh water’. It is a refreshing beverage made typically from fruits that have been blended with water. It’s somewhere between a juice and a smoothie: It’s not concentrated enough to be a juice and not thick enough to be a smoothie. It’s more of a fruity refresher. You can make aqua fresca with any water-based fruit such as melons and pineapple. They are a great way to re-hydrate and cool down when hot.
