Blackberry-Lime Agua Fresca

Blackberry-Lime Agua Fresca
The kids and I went on a bike ride and were in great need of a cool beverage when we got home.   Luckily, earlier in the day, I made some Blackberry-Lime Agua Fresca.  I poured  each of us a cold glass of this refreshing beverage.  It tasted cool and  quenched our thirst.  The lime and the blackberries were a  great combination of flavors.   This drink is very quick to make.  In a blender you puree blackberries, powdered sugar, and lime juice.  Strain the mixture into a pitcher  and add chilled water.  Stir, pour into glasses and enjoy.  If you wish, you can pour the agua fresca over ice - I did.

  1. Hi Geraldine!

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I passed so many blackberry signs along the roads today and just couldn't bring myself to buy any without a "purpose." Now that I have one, I will be buying some tomorrow!

    Thank you so much for sharing...
