We were first introduced to watermelon agua fresca (which is simply watermelon liquified in a blender) at a local Mexican restaurant several years ago and fell in love with the simplicity and taste. I, of course, had to experiment with different variations, and I really like this one: The addition of the mango gives it a smoothie consistency.

YUM! I have not had agua fresca before- though I've been to Mexico and the DR. I know, for shame. But I'll definitely be giving this a try. I love all of the ingredients, but never thought about using cilantro in a fruity drink.
