  • 8 cups watermelon (diced)
  • 3 cups cantaloupe (diced)
  • 20 fresh mint leaves
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup (optional - or sub raw honey)
  • ¼ cup lime juice


  • Peel and dice the watermelon and cantaloupe. 
  • In a blender, combine the diced watermelon and cantaloupe, mint leaves, and maple syrup or honey if using.
  • Blend until smooth. You may need to do this in batches. 
  • Strain the liquid through a mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding the pulp.
  • Stir in the lime juice.
  • Serve over ice and keep leftover chilled in the refrigerator.


If your agua fresca separates into layers in the fridge, just give it a quick stir before serving.
