Are you in need of a refreshing drink to cool down with as the warm weather takes hold? You’ve got to try this fruity, sparkling Watermelon Agua Fresca.

Agua fresca, or “fresh water,” is a popular drink in Mexico and throughout Central America. They’re made by combining water with sugar and fruits to create a sweet and tasty beverage.

My version includes the added benefits of Multi Collagen Protein and uses cooling benefit-rich watermelon and honey to keep it free from refined sugars. When mixed with sparkling water, the result is a fizzy beverage you’ll want to drink all summer long.
