Last  Friday, the only “solid” food I was still able to eat was watermelon, so yesterday I bought some seedless watermelon (Sandia) to enjoy today. Well it did not work out that way. I almost choked to death from the first piece I tried to swallow. After about 20 minutes of trying to breathe normal again, my first reaction was to throw the fruit away. Then I remembered one of my favorite drinks when I was living in Mexico – “Agua De Sandia” with vodka 🙂
Obviously, no vodka for me now, but the “Agua Fresca” was a great change from my regular, room temperature plain water I have to drink nowadays.
(And Bella enjoyed the pulp).
So, when life gives you melons,…………….

Agua De Sandia Recipe :
>
Wash one large seedless watermelon thoroughly, peel, remove any seeds  (Sometimes there are a few seeds, even if you specifically buy “Seedless”).
Cut fruit into cubes, add 3 tablespoon organic honey and the juice of 2 limes. Blend until very smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, chill. If you like to add ice to your drink, freeze some of the Agua Fresca in an ice cube tray, so when it melts in your drink, it adds juice, not water.

  1. One of my favorite things to put through my juicer is watermelon that’s been well chilled in the refrigerator.  What a way to start the day.  Also I love juicing cucumbers, kale, celery, and apples.  Add lime juice and enjoy.

    Your posts are always enjoyed, great photos too.

    Life is good.

  2. My dear chap! I did not know that you were unwell, and I wish you a full and speedy recovery.

    It is a refreshing (!) change to see a recipe which does not contain the otherwise omnipresent “shrimp” and kosher salt – and, as we are currently baking, here, in temperatures in the high 80’s, and I have a Turkish shop over the road, I think that I will wander over and get a seedless melon to cool me down

    With best wishes, as always,

    Peter
