Agua fresca means cool water in Spanish and is a light, refreshing, non-alcoholic drink. It can be any combination of fruit, herbs, water, sugar, seeds, or cereal. This one is great for a party because it’s a great color and most people like the cucumber, mint, and lime combo – which is low FODMAP.
You will need to make our Simple Syrup first.

Cucumber Mint Lime Agua Fresca
This Cucumber Mint Lime Agua Fresca is non-alcoholic and incredibly refreshing. Low FODMAP, too! Try to find organic and unwaxed cucumbers.

- 20 fresh mint leaves
- 2 tablespoons Simple Syrup
- ½ cup (120 ml) lime juice

Juice your cucumbers, either in a juicer, or by grating them on a box grater on the side with the largest holes, and then straining the grated cucumber into a blender.
