  • 1 medium pineapple
  • 1 cucumber (about 1 ¾ cups)
  • cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons pure cane sugar
  • 7 cups water


  • Peel and chop pineapple and cucumber. Place chunks in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Add basil and sugar. Blend for 10 more seconds.
  • Transfer mixture to a large pitcher and stir in water. Serve over ice.


  • If you’re going to serve immediately, pour ice in a large pitcher and pour the agua fresca in it.
  • If you’re going to serve it later, you can store it in a pitcher without ice until ready to serve.
  • This will keep in the fridge for up to two days.
  • To make this low in sugar use your favorite low-glycemic sweeteners, such as stevia, monk fruit sugar, or coconut sugar.
