How to Make Aguas Frescas at Home

​​Source: Lola's Cocina

Earlier this week, Lola Dweck from Lola’s Cocina showed us how to make aguas frescas using natural ingredients at home.

Aguas frescas are a perfect healthy substitute for sugary fruit juices and soft drinks.

Watch the replay below:

During class, Lola taught us how to incorporate healthy ingredients like chia seeds, agave, and kale to make tasty, refreshing, and beautiful looking beverages.

She even taught us how to make our very own oat milk or agua de avena at home. This was fascinating because, as many of you know, oat milk is trending right now, but it has actually been made in Mexico for years.

To follow along during class, we’ve included the ingredients and links to Lola’s aguas frescas recipes below:
