While I don’t dislike cantaloupe, it’s not on my list of favorite fruits.

However, it is quite delicious in drink form.

My husband loves cantaloupe and is always buying more than he can eat.

I hate it when fruit goes bad so before that could happen I thought, why not turn it into a delicious agua fresca?

And that I did and I absolutely love the color! Isn’t it pretty?

I love how colorful agua frescas are.

They always looks so beautiful in photos.

What is agua de melon made of?

Agua de melon is made from just three ingredients which include cantaloupe, water and sugar.

You may not even need the sugar depending on how sweet the cantaloupe is.

The riper the cantaloupe the sweeter the agua fresca will be.

So it’s a good idea to taste the agua before adding any sugar.

Is cantaloupe agua fresca good for you?

Yes, besides being very hydrating eating cantaloupe has many health benefits.

If you’re looking to get the most health benefits out of drinking agua de melon then it’s best to omit the sugar.

Cantaloupe agua fresca or agua de melon is one of the most delicious beverages you could serve this summer! Aguas frescas are usually made from fruit and are popular throughout Mexico.
