How to make cantaloupe melon agua fresca with a juicer machine

Agua fresca de melón



Yield 4 cups

How to use a juicer to make cantaloupe agua fresca.



  1. Cut cantaloupe in half and remove seeds. Slice melon vertically and remove the rinds.
  2. Put a large measuring cup underneath the juice spout. Turn on the juicer and feed the melon through the chute with the pusher. Unplug the juicer and then make sure all the juice has come out of the receptable, then close the spout. You can set the juicer aside to clean when you're done.
  3. The juice should settle to the bottom of the measuring cup and it will look like there's foam over the top of the juice. Over a pitcher, pour the contents of the measuring cup through a fine mesh sieve so that only the juice goes into the pitcher. allow the foam to sit in the sieve on top of the pitcher for about 5 minutes so any remaining juice drips into the pitcher.
  4. Add 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons of Hey Shuga! Organic Cane Sugar Liquid Sweetener and stir well until it's completely dissolved. 
  5. Serve over ice immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days. Make sure the pitcher has a lid or seal if you're going to refrigerate the agua fresca. 


Can be refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
