First, rinse the strawberries and cut off the green tops. Add the strawberries to a blender with water and sweetener of choice (cane sugar, agave, stevia, etc.). Add in a squeeze of lime juice at this point if you are using it.
Blend on high until no chunks remain and the mixture is smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetener or water to your preferences, then strain the mixture into a bowl, jar, or pitcher to remove some seeds.
Transfer to your fridge to chill for a few hours, or serve your agua de fresa immediately over ice with mint sprigs, fresh basil, lime, or lemon wedges. Happy drinking!
Stevia makes a great replacement if you want a healthier option. For reference, 2 tablespoons of cane sugar are equal to 1 typical packet of powdered stevia (or an 8:1 ratio).
