Baby, it’s hot outside!

We just celebrated Independence day and wow was it hot!  So hot in fact that I was already thinking a little longingly towards fall!

It cracked me up because I always prefer the weather of any season but the one we’re in at the time.  I bet that when fall comes that I’ll be a bit nostalgic for summer.

But until then,  I decided that a cold drink was in order.  This refreshing lime agua fresca recipe is just the ticket.

This has been one of my favorite new creations this summer.  I shared it with my friend Sarah and she told me it is great with tacos!  I think its great with anything!

What’s an Agua Fresca?

Agua frescas are a popular drink in Latin America!  It’s typically fruit blended with water to make a light infused water.

Now if you’ve never had an agua fresca, you’ll want to know something.  It’s not intensely fruity like a smoothie.  It is more like an infused water: light and refreshing but not overpowering.  That’s what makes it perfect as a warm day drink.

The Lime Agua Fresca is very easy to make.  Check out the video below!

What do you need?

So delicious and fresh!  I love this recipe so much.  You can try swapping out your favorite fruits and food appropriate essential oils to make delicious flavor combos.

Try swapping watermelon for cantaloupe or honeydew.  Swap frozen strawberries for frozen mango or pineapple.  Experiment with other citrus Vitality essential oils.  You’ll find that this recipe is so versatile!
