Brita Collaboration – Tropical Agua Fresca with Jewelled Ice

BRITA Tropical Agua Fresca

This is the last of the three healthy drink recipes that I created for BRITA and it is definitely my favorite! I am planning on sipping this tropical agua fresca all summer long.

Agua frescas are fruity but refreshing flavoured waters popular in Mexico. Served ice-cold, they are thirst-quenching with a hint of sweetness. This version is made with coconut water, rich in potassium, calcium and magnesium. To keep the drink fresh and light, the fruit is used to infuse the water, and “jewelled” fruit ice cubes dress up the drink.

Tropical Agua Fresca with Jewelled Ice

100 ml BRITA filtered water

20 pomegranate seeds

10 blueberries

400 ml coconut water

1 lime, washed and quartered

½ orange, washed and roughly chopped

50 g chopped fresh mango

2 tablespoons honey

Serves 2

First, make the fruit ice cubes. Place the pomegranate seeds and blueberries in an empty ice cube tray, fill with BRITA filtered water and freeze.

To make the agua fresca, place the lime, orange, mango and honey in a large jug and bash well with a wooden spoon to blend and release the juices. Add the coconut water and stir well. The drink can be refrigerated for up to 48 hours at this point.

When ready to serve, strain the agua fresca into two glasses and add the BRITA fruit ice cubes.
