I’m so excited that Spring is finally here and the temperature is heading up, up, up! This is my favorite time of year because it’s not to hot or cold. Just right! I wanted to share a delicious recipe with you since Watermelon season is almost here! In the U.S., watermelon is usually available year-round but peak production is in May, June, July and August. Our entire family could eat Watermelon year round. Especially when its used in recipes, like this Watermelon Agua Fresca Float Recipe. If you are like me, then you are wondering what Agua Fresca means. Agua Fresca is Spanish for “fresh waters” and is most often a blend of fruit, sugar and water, served over ice. Our family loves this version of the recipe that is perfect for a spring or summer day! If you are looking for something a little “lighter” try omitting the Vanilla Ice Cream! Or you could add a shot or two of rum and make it really good! And now, I present you with Watermelon Agua Fresca Float Recipe!
Watermelon Agua Fresca Float Recipe:
First you are going to gather all your ingredients including Watermelon, fresh Mint Leaves, Sparkling Water, Lime Juice, Agave or Honey and Vanilla Ice Cream.
Make sure to cut up your watermelon into chunks.
Add 1 cup of sparkling water to blender. Next you are going to place several scoops of ice cream in each glass. Then pour watermelon mixture over ice cream to make float. If it doesn’t foam up, just add a splash of sparkling water to create more fizz.
