Cucumber Agua Fresca Smoothie

cucumber agua fresca

This summer, cool off with this agua fresca-inspired smoothie! Agua frescas (Spanish for “fresh waters”) are a popular way to beat the heat in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. The refreshing drinks are made by infusing water with fruit, herbs, or flowers, and then the drinks are blended with sugar. We’ve created a Shakeology version that uses coarsely chopped cucumber, fresh lime juice, and Vanilla Shakeology. Blend it all together and enjoy!
