Strawberry Agua Fresca | Agua Fresca de Fresa

As California’s strawberry season kicks off, I encourage you to raise your glass of strawberry agua fresca and say salud to warmer weather, fresas, and all of the special women throughout the world who have had a positive impact on you. Happy Mother’s Day!  

4 cups strawberries (about 15-20) rinsed and hulled
5 cups water divided
½ cup sugar or agave syrup (or to taste)


  1. Blend strawberries, 4 cups water, and sugar on medium setting for 60 seconds.
  2. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into large pitcher. You may need to agitate the mixture to let the juice through, avoid pushing the pulp through to keep juice light in consistency. Discard pulp.
  3. Stir in remaining 1 cup of water.
  4. Chill and serve over ice. Garnish with fresh mint or strawberries.

    Looks delicious!!! I can’t wait until strawberries are in season here. I’m looking forward to some more “red-themed” recipes 🙂

    Thank you, Nicole. In Chino, where my mother lives, there have been strawberries almost all year because of this wacky weather!

    Wow! I’m so jealous. We are still snow-covered here. No local strawberries until June 😦

      In my aguas I like using agave and in my licuados I prefer dates!
