If you can’t tell from my How to Make Agua Fresca post and the different agua fresca recipe variations I have on my site, I’m a big fan of agua fresca! They’re a great alternative to juice, as they retain more fiber and nutrients as they’re not filtered like juice is. Plus they’re incredibly hydrating and delicious, and this Strawberry Ginger Agua Fresca is no different!

On top of retaining the fiber of the whole fruit and being immensely hydrating, the strawberries in this Strawberry Ginger Agua Fresca offer numerous other health benefits:

  • Due to their high water and fiber content, strawberries have a low glycemic index which makes them a great choice for a fruit that won’t impact your blood sugar as much as others may.
  • About 26% of the carb content in strawberries is from fiber! Fiber is great for satiety, digestion, your gut microbiome, blood sugar, and keeping things running regularly for ya.
  • Strawberries contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, manganese, folate, and potassium.
  • Strawberries are rich in anthocyanins, which help give strawberries their bright red hue and may offer protective heart benefits.
  • Strawberries are also rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrient compounds.
