Acqua Fresca!

There is nothing like summer to entice you to prepare healthy and tasty drinks. So fresh and refreshing that are good for your health just looking at them. Always with natural and tasty fresh fruits, but also vegetables, and herbs.

Always different according to what is available at the moment.

Today it was “Almond Apricot” drink. Simple and easy to make.

Serves 4, preparation 10 min., plus 1 hr soaking, 30 min cooling.

  • 150 gr. Almonds (peeled)
  • 200 gr apricots (about 4)
  • 1,25 lt. Water
  • 2 tablespoons of Acacia honey
  • A pinch of “fleur de sel”
  • Ice cubes to serve.

Soak the almonds in a cup of water for at least an hour. Then drain, cut the apricots in half, and blend apricots and almonds with a cup of water.

Filter the mixture through a fine sieve. Put in a jug, add the honey and the salt. Taste and add honey to your taste if needed.

Keep in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.

Serve chilled with ice cubes, and a recyclable straw. Toss the plastic ones FOREVER. @Greta!

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
