Instructions:

  1. Blend the strawberries: In a blender, combine the chopped strawberries and 1 cup of the water. Blend until smooth and no large chunks remain.
  2. Strain the purée (optional): If you prefer a smoother texture, strain the strawberry purée through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any seeds. You can skip this step if you don’t mind the seeds.
  3. Combine the ingredients: In a large pitcher, combine the strawberry purée, remaining water, milk, and condensed milk. Stir until well combined.
  4. Chill and serve: Add ice cubes to the pitcher and stir to chill. Taste and adjust the sweetness, adding more condensed milk if desired. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if using, and serve immediately.

Tips:

  • For a richer flavor, use frozen strawberries instead of fresh. Thaw them slightly before blending.
  • You can adjust the amount of water to your desired consistency. More water for a thinner drink, less for a thicker one.
  • If you don’t have condensed milk, you can use honey or agave nectar to sweeten the agua fresca.
  • Add a squeeze of lime juice for a tangy twist.
  • Get creative with garnishes! Fresh berries, a dollop of whipped cream, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon are all delicious options.

Enjoy this Creamy Strawberry Agua Fresca as a refreshing drink on a hot day, or as a light and satisfying dessert. It’s sure to become a summertime favorite for the whole family!
