When Moms Meet reached out to me to try out the new line of Agua Fresca products by Santa Cruz Organics, I was very eager to join. I have been enjoying Santa Cruz Organic juices with my family for over 7 years. We are huge fans of their lemonades and I have been know to tuck those deep in the refrigerator so that they won’t disappear too quickly!
This new line out is a variety of Agua Fresca drinks. The orgins of agua fresca is linked to the Caribbean and Central America and translated means fresh waters. Santa Cruz has created a line which uses water, organic fruit purees, organic sugars and a hint of lemon juice. There are three flavors to choose from Mango Passionfruit, Pomegranate, and Grapefruit. These lightly sweetened drinks are GMO and gluten free and cost just under $3.50.I love that they come in a glass bottle which seems to make them extra cold out of the refrigerator.
We were eager to sample Santa Cruz Agua Frescas as a family and loved the bonus applesauce packets. First we tried the Pomegranate. The flavor was light and refreshing. For my children who were ready for a thick juice, they were surprised by the light flavor. Personally, I loved the crisp sweetness of the beverage . I found it a wonderful alternative to when I need a little flavor with my water. I ended up consuming the rest of the bottle myself in one day, perhaps I needed to exercise a bit of self control.
The Mango Passionfruit had a richer flavor and was the family favorite. With only 60 calories per 8 ounce serving, compared to 120 calories for their usual juice drink and with half the sugar it was a huge win for me. Though we often serve water, the kids tire of that as a choice and often want a juice. Santa Cruz Aqua Fresca delivers that for both the adults and children in my house. I love that it is organic, has less calories and sugar than the juice boxes we occasionally serve, plus it tastes great.
I would recommend that you trade in juice and try the Agua Fresca in your house too! Moms Meet and Santa Cruz are giving away two bottles of Agua Fresca to one of my readers who resides in the continental United States.
