Raspberry-Passionfruit Agua Fresca

Ingredients
12 oz. frozen passionfruit cubes (such as Pitaya Foods brand)
6 oz. fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish
¼ cup Kowalski's Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (from the Produce Department)
¼ cup agave syrup (or more if desired)
12-24 oz. cold water, as desired
- ice
- lime slices and mint sprigs, for garnish
Directions
  1. In a blender, combine passionfruit, berries and lime juice; blend on high until completely smooth.
  2. Add agave syrup to taste; blend to incorporate.
  3. To remove seeds and excess pulp, pour fruit mixture through a fine-mesh strainer 1-2 times until smooth.
  4. Pour strained mixture into a 2 qt. jar or pitcher.
  5. Add water; stir to combine.
  6. This mixture will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to serve, add ice to the pitcher and stir to combine; pour into individual glasses garnished with raspberries, lime slices and mint.

 

Tasty Tips:

  • Kowalski's Simple Syrup or Kowalski's Pure Maple Syrup may be used in place of agave syrup.
  • For a more nutrient-rich and authentic-style agua fresca, skip the straining and pour the frothy, blended, sweetened fruit mixture directly into a glass; top off with ice and water to taste.
  • Add effervescence with tonic or sparkling water.
  • Agua fresca makes a good mixer for cocktails. Try this one with tequila or rum!
