I remember walking through the mercados in Monterrey, Mexico and enjoying all the colors, sights and smells. I loved the delicious aromas of assorted dishes of authentic Mexican foods as well as the stacks of freshly dried chiles and produce of all kinds. As a child, the stall that always caught my eye was the one surrounded by the huge glass jars filled with freshly made aguas frescas. Some of my favorite flavors were watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple.

Ingredients

  • 12 cups of fresh pineapple, cut into 1-inch pieces, reserving 2 cups for garnish
  • 2 quarts coconut water
  • 3 limes, 2 juiced and 1 sliced thin for garnish
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 10 large fresh mint leaves
  • 6 cups of ice

Directions

  • 1
    In a blender, add 5 cups of fresh pineapple, 1 quart of coconut water, the juice of 1 lime, 3 mint leaves and 1/2 of the sugar. Blend on high for about 30 seconds.
