¡Buenos días! As your Easter preparations are underway, I’d like to share a refreshing recipe that will give you just the right boost of vitamins A and C. This kid-friendly agua fresca is sure to delight the little ones and the Easter bunny. As for the adults, just add a splash of vodka or tequila to take the edge off before the holiday madness. Consider this your liquid chill pill.
2 large carrots, scrubbed, rinsed, and roughly chopped
15 unpeeled kumquats
1/3 cup agave syrup or cane sugar
6 cups water
- Blend carrots, kumquats, agave syrup, and water oh high for 60 seconds.
- Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large pitcher. You may need to agitate the mixture to let the juice through; avoid pushing through the pulp to keep juice light in consistency. Discard or compost pulp.
- Garnish with carrot ribbons and kumquat slices (optional), and serve over ice.
Note: If you do not have access to kumquats, use three peeled tangerines.
