Chef John's Watermelon Agua Fresca
This is my all-time favorite summertime drink. When it's hot and humid and you're totally parched, there's nothing as refreshing, as revitalizing, and as restorative as ice-cold watermelon agua fresca. It's one of life's great drinkable pleasures.

Breakfast Banana Green Smoothie
Easy and simple, you'll have this smoothie in no time. This smoothie is packed with nutrients and vitamins. It's also perfect if you're in a hurry to get to work, rushing your kids to school (rushing yourself to school...like me), or just craving a fresh and healthy drink to start your day. Organic maple syrup can be added instead of honey.
Kiwi Banana Apple Smoothie
This smoothie is tasty and super-healthy - a lot of thanks to the seeds and powder used in it.
Purple Power Punch Smoothie (My Kids' Fave)
This is my go-to smoothie of choice. My kids (all 4) absolutely love it for the flavor as well as the purple color. It's fun, easy, and the kids can even help out! Feel free to add or subtract any of the fruit, honey, or sugar to your taste preference.
