Summer is the perfect time to have freshly squeezed fruit juice so we thought you’d love this super easy agua de piña. Aguas in Mexico are made with a variety of fruit. Aguas are simply blended and strained fruit with the addition of some sugar and lots of water and ice. I’ve also seen recipes where agave nectar and or honey are used to sweeten the juice.

My kids have always loved juice and they always love fresh aguas. Markets and farmer’s markets are usually exploding with a variety of fruits to choose from during the summer and your kids will love helping you make aguas with their favorite fruit, even if all they get to do is drop the cut up fruit into the blender.

Some of the most common aguas are melon (cantaloupe), sandia (watermelon), horchata (rice water), jamaica (hibiscus tea), limón (lime), pepino (cucumber), and piña (pineapple) so today we are sharing the pineapple version. Why, because we love pineapple in our home and I kept seeing pineapples at the store. So no time like the present to give this agua a try.
