Watermelon, Cucumber & Lime Agua Fresca

2 cucumbers

1 watermelon (save 1/4 for chunks and garnish)

1/2 cup lime juice

1 cup sugar

8 cups water


Roughly chop the fruit and add the ingredients (except the water) into the blender.

(I used my Nutrabullet in batches as it works so much better than most blenders!)

Pour the mixture into the containers, then add the water and ice.

Mix thoroughly.

Makes 6 quarts.
