KIMBERLY SNYDER LOW SUGAR AGUA FRESCA RECIPE
This refreshing drink infuses water with fresh fruit but no added sugar, so it’s a low sugar option for summer. Many in our community already know, we are big fans of Kimberly Snyder and post many of her Beauty Detox recipes that we have tested and LOVE on our site. We know you will enjoy this easy agua fresca recipe for your next backyard BBQ or summertime soiree and your guests old and young alike will love it too! It’s so simple, just water and your favorite fruit mixed together, some lime juice and a little natural stevia for some added sweetness and you’re done! Of course those with a “regular blender” can also enjoy – although you won’t reap some of the health benefits, such as including the nutritious black seeds in a watermelon, which will be pulverized by a Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender. We do make this year round, definitely try it with different fruits or even a combination!

If you have a "regular blender", puree the water and fruit, then place a small sieve over a pitcher and pour mixture into it, straining the liquid into the pitcher. Discard solids.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF LIME
The smallest of the citrus family, the lime, is the most widely used citrus fruit. Limes are very rich in Vitamin C (even more than lemons), which helps increase the body’s resistance to disease, and aids in maintaining bone and teeth health. Lime juice is a great pick me up for those rundown feelings from vitamin deficiency.
