This refreshing Mexican drink is a perfect accompaniment to your summer barbecue or Mexican food. I don’t make it too sweet. If the watermelon is sweet, I don’t add any sweetener, otherwise I add only couple of spoonfuls of agave nectar, which is a natural low-glycemic sweetener. Sweeten according to your taste and the sweetness of the watermelon.
agave syrup (can substitute sugar, honey or non-caloric sweetener)
Ice and water
Cut up watermelon in slices, then wedges. Remove from peel. Cut into pieces and fill blender. Add 2 tsp. agave nectar syrup for each quart.
Add 1 cup water and blend. Add 1 cup ice to cool and blend again. Adjust sweetener if needed. Repeat the process for as much agua de sandia you want to make.
