There are so many food trucks here in Austin, and I have to say that I used to be a little envious of those who felt comfortable walking up to the window and ordering an agua fresca. Yet, I knew that they were filling their bodies with that toxic ingredient, sugar! So I present a delicious Agua Fresca The Myers Way®!

Instead of all that sugar, this drink is naturally sweetened with watermelon and mint leaves. It also has a fun, fizzy quality from the carbonated water. It’s delicious! Cool off this summer, with a cool drink that is great for your gut!
