Strawberry Blueberry Agua Fresca

Agua Fresca 2 (1 of 2)

Ever since I had agua fresca in a taco shop when we went to San Francisco a couple of years ago, I’ve been wanting to replicate it at home and it’s the perfect time to do it with all the fresh fruit in season! And in case you were wondering, Agua Fresca is spanish for […]

I actually made this punch for our Post Christmas Pajama Party and it was a HUGE hit! No one even opened the soft drinks, everyone just drank the punch. This punch is maybe the best punch I have ever had. I kid you not! It had such a great flavor and wasn’t too fizzy. So […]

I don’t know about you, but I definitely ate my share of heavy carbs, cheese, cookies & candy over the week of Christmas & New Year’s.  While it all tasted amazing, it left me feeling tired and overloaded from all of that heavy food and I needed something to detox from all that overindulgance.  When […]
