Watermelon Agua Fresca Float Recipe

My favorite no guilt treat in summer is watermelon. It’s not only delicious, but hydrating as well.

My family also craves ice cream when it’s hot outside.

What better way to have the best of both worlds then by combining them into a Watermelon Aqua Fresca Float?

This is super quick and easy and won’t detract from your lazy summer evening.

    I have never used watermelon in a float and I love floats, so,I shall have to try this recipe the next time I have watermelon in the house.

    Even with the ice cream ~ this sounds so refreshing (and obviously delicious! The mint and lime are wonderful additions ~ and I can’t to try making it with the AGAVE! Watermelon is such a quintessential American fruit ~ I think I’m going to be making this recipe both WITH and WITHOUT the Ice Cream. Already pinned it on two boards. This will be on the menu tomorrow ~ just got to get to the store for the watermelon and the AGAVE. The mint will come fresh from our garden. Thanks for another great recipe.

  27. Heather Hollands says:

    Sounds refreshing. I’ve never had a watermelon float. I just tried watermelon yogurt for the first time, though.

  28. Regina Wright says:

    Sounds so refreshing! I would definitely do this minus the honey/agave. Thanks for sharing.
