Strawberries and Cream Agua de Fresa

This STRAWBERRIES & CREAM AGUA DE FRESA is mine & my family’s favorite summer beverage. It only has 4 ingredients & is ready in less than 5 minutes. It’s absolutely amazing & I can never get enough of it. Creamy, fruity, & just perfectly perfect.ย 

It’s strawberry season – one of my favorite food seasons of the year. I just love freshly picked strawberries – they really are the best.

The other day, I took my son to a local strawberry picking patch so we could pick a few gallons worth to take home for some various recipes, including jam. Well, going berry picking together was the plan. E was so excited to go. He was going to pick ALL the berries. All of them.

Notice E’s berry stained mouth ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, once we got there, he claimed he didn’t see any berries. Even though there were literally berries EVERYWHERE. So, I bend down and show him where they’re at and we get to picking. Well, I get to picking… lol. E? Well, all the ripe berries he finds are somehow damaged & need to be eaten. Well, except for 6 berries. 6 berries he picked weren’t ‘damaged’ and they made it into the bucket. Oh, that boy… haha.

I told him he was my official berry eater!

We got 3 gallons worth to bring home – plenty for jelly, and plenty left over to make our FAVORITE summer beverage.

A glass of this will have you getting right back up to pour you another glass… and then another. It’s hard to believe that something that only has 4 ingredients (which you just dump in a pitcher & stir with some ice… can you say easy?) can be mixed together to taste so good. Oh, it’s sooooo good. My daughters told me before I left to go berry picking to make sure I brought back plenty extra fresh berries for this drink (as if I wasn’t already planning to haha). It’s all of our favorites! It’s kind of sad how fast we down a pitcher full of this. Or maybe impressive. Guess it depends on how you look at it. I’m going to go with impressive. It’s also impressive how fast I can clear a plate of biscuits & gravy, but that’s a story for another day.

Oh – and did I mention that one of the ingredients is water? Told you it was easy peasy, y’all.

The best way I can describe the flavors of this is to think about your favorite strawberry ice cream. Like, the most luscious, rich, smooth, silky, fresh, homemade strawberry ice cream you’ve ever had. But melted… and ice cold. So creamy.

It really is amazing.
