Passion Fruit Agua Fresca – Agua Fresca de Maracuyá

Recently, our days have been filled with sunshine and warm weather. A bit of California sunshine also made its way to Colorado when my friend from San Diego mailed me a box of maracuyás. This certainly brightened my spirits and inspired me to develop several recipes that I’ll be sharing with you in the coming weeks.

Agua Fresca de Avena – Homemade Oat Milk with Dates, Vanilla, and Cinnamon


While oat milk is beginning to pick up steam in the American market, its counterpart, agua de avena has been enjoyed in Mexico for generations. There are many variations of this recipe, but I wanted to keep it dairy-free and free of processed sugars (although I’ve tasted it with evaporated and condensed milk and it’s delicious!). Here’s my version – it’s simple, tasty, and only took me about four tries to perfect.

Hope you enjoy it as I do!

Crazy for Carrots: 3 Recipes to Use Your Vitamin-Rich Carrots

Living through a pandemic has encouraged many of us go get creative in the cocina. I oftentimes find myself trying figure out what to do with a lonesome bag of carrots sitting in my crisper.

Obviously, you could juice, roast, or eat them raw, but I think you’ll find zanahorias a little more interesting if you transform them into a fun elixir, dessert, or side dish.

¡Provecho!
