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)
- Blend strawberries, 4 cups water, and sugar on medium setting for 60 seconds.
- 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.
- Stir in remaining 1 cup of water.
- 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 🙁
Do you prefer one sweetener over the other??
In my aguas I like using agave and in my licuados I prefer dates!
