Pineapple, Lime & Mint Agua Fresca

I recently tried a recipe for Pineapple, Lime & Mint Agua Fresca that I found in a Cooking Light cookbook I bought a few months back. Guess what? It tasted GREAT!Pineapple, Lime & Mint Agua Fresca / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

The recipe took less than 5 minutes to whip up, and before I knew it, was chilling in my refrigerator!  The end result was a cold and delicious, family-friendly pineapple infused beverage, with a touch of lime and fresh mint, for added flavor!

Here’s how you make it (enough for 4 one cup servings):  Place fresh chunks of pineapple, cold water, a smidge of sugar, and fresh lime juice into a blender.

Blend the ingredients on high for about a minute until fully mixed and smooth.

Hold a sieve over the serving pitcher. Strain the liquid through the sieve, directly into the pitcher. I used a spoon to help push the liquid through. Once all liquid has been strained through, discard any solids remaining in the sieve.

Add chopped fresh mint leaves to the mixture.  Give the mixture a good stir, then cover the pitcher, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve! Serve when it is good and cold!
