I can't take the heat. As I write this post, I'm practically in a bathing suit sitting in front of my computer as sweat drips down my body. So glamorous right? My beloved 70º So-Cal weather is no where to be found, we are currently going through a heat wave. Yesterday we had a record high of 100º and today my car thermometer said it was 104º. I think it might be time I break down and buy this pretty AC unit!
In attempt to beat the heat I made some watermelon, lime, mint agua fresca – so easy and quick! A great treat in this heat, but probably better if I was sitting pool side instead of computer side.
WATERMELON LIME MINT AGUA FRESCA print this recipe!
5 cups of watermelon, seeds removed
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of mint leaves
juice from 2 limes
1. In a blender blend together watermelon, lime juice and water until smooth
2. Muddle together watermelon puree and mint leaves. If you desire you can serve as is, or strain the leaves out and serve over ice!
