Pineapple Coconut Agua Fresca is my husband’s favorite for good reason. That’s why, in México, pineapple and coconut commonly live together, including in Agua Fresca.

Aguas Frescas and Paleterías

Please keep in mind, we call any number of irresistible combinations of fruit and liquid, or flower and liquid, or even grain and liquid, Agua Fresca.

In some parts of Mexico, these yummy blended beverages are also called “preparados,” especially in restaurants. If you visit Mexico and see something like preparado de piña (pineapple), or preparado de mandarina (mandarin oranges) on the menu, it’s basically an agua fresca.

You can also find aguas frescas in paleterías or neverías, which are ice pop and ice cream shops. We usually stop by one of them as soon as we arrive back in México for a visit.

My kids run to the aguas frescas refrigerator, stopping just long enough to consider which flavor they’ll try this time.

The flavors are almost limitless, from lime to jamaica (hibiscus flower), to creamy rompope (a little like egg nog), to horchata (rice-based) or piña colada. They are all refreshing and delicious.

Making aguas frescas at home gives me the opportunity to add more fruit to my kids’ diets, and it’s a fast way to quench their thirsts when they arrive home from school or the park.

That’s why I’m sharing this recipe for piña colada agua fresca today, inspired by the aguas frescas from the paleterías in my hometown.

You might be surprised to know you need just 3 ingredients, all of which you may have in your pantry already.

You also may be surprised to know that I don’t add sugar to my agua fresca. The juice and fruit already provide just the right amount of sweetness.

Enjoy!

Mix until fruit is completely blended, if you are looking for a smooth, creamy consistency, or a little less blended, if you want your agua fresca “chunkier.” Both ways are amazing.

Put it in the fridge for a few hours or serve with ice.

Perfect for Family Outings

This pineapple coconut agua fresca is perfect when taking the kids to the park, the beach or on a picnic. And of course it’s a great beverage for your parties year round.

I’ve mentioned before that, just like you, I like to keep nutritious snacks in the pantry. The best of these snacks my kids can take, open and enjoy in an instant and on their own, like the ones from Dole Package Foods.

But I’ve also used these same convenient snacks in many of my own recipes, like my apple-strawberry multigrain breakfast muffins, pineapple and pear salad with yogurt dressing, and my mandarin orange no-bake tarts, just to name a few. So they work both as convenient snacks and as nutritious ingredients in recipes.

I’m just coming back from a vacation somewhere warm and so over the weekend, I was missing the deliciously refreshing cocktails and drinks I enjoyed all week! Stumbled on your agua fresca recipe and it really hit the spot. It’s so bright and fresh! Will make it all summer long.
