Agua Fresca de Tamarindo
Agua Fresca de Tamarindo or Tamarind Water is a delicious sweet drink made from ripened tamarind pods. If you are looking for a refreshing natural drink try Agua Fresca de Tamarindo or tamarind water, it is one of the many aguas frescas enjoyed in Mexico.
My version is tart, a little sour, a little sweet with a hint of spice. I only used a 1//2 cup of agave because I no longer care for my foods and beverages to be overly sweet.:-)
Tamarind is rich in vitamins and minerals and is a healthy substitute for soda with your meals.Tamarinds are the fruit of the tamarind tree, a member of the fabaceae family which is the same family of plant as peas and beans. The trees are native to Africa but are now grown throughout the world in sub-tropical regions. The flavor of tamarind is loved in Mexico and it is used mainly to prepare tamarind paste, sauces and spicy candy like Pulparindo.
