Introduction

This refreshing and not-too-sweet beverage is almost too pretty to drink. Almost!
This refreshing and not-too-sweet beverage is almost too pretty to drink. Almost!

Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 cup strawberries, quartered*
    1/2 cup raspberries*
    4 limes, juiced (about 1/2 cup)
    1 tablespoon agave nectar**
    2 1/2 cups seltzer water or club soda

    *Using frozen fruit? No need to thaw or drain it.
    ** Agave nectar can be found in the health-food aisle at most supermarkets. You can substitute your favorite sweetener or omit it.


Tips

Cherries are equally delightful in this recipe when they're in season.


Directions

Pure the fruit, lime juice, and agave nectar in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour 1/2 cup into a glass filled with ice and top with 1/2 cup seltzer. Repeat with the other glasses.

You can refrigerate the fruit juice mixture for up to a week, but add the seltzer just before drinking.


Serving Size: Makes 5 eight-ounce servings.

    I didn't feel like going to the store to get strawberries, but I had some frozen unsweetened cherries. I threw them in the bender frozen :) and used splenda instead of agave! - 7/5/12

    this is a great recipe. I live in Florida, so fruit is plentiful and inexpensive. I have added raspberries, strawberries, cherries, blueberries and blackberries and even a little lemon/juice. Thank you for the recipe - 7/23/12

    For the commenter that said 8 oz is a pretty small size for a drink: if you read "serving size" on ... really, any drink I've ever seen: 8 oz is the serving size. Just FYI. And that includes water, since the recommendations are always broke down to number of 8-oz glasses. - 7/6/12
