Papaya Agua Fresca -

Fresh papayas are one of the fruits I like to always have on my kitchen counter. Not only are they flavorful, papayas are also packed with antioxidants, minerals, and vitamin C. Like most fruits, we love to eat papaya topped with Tajín (a chile-lime flavored seasoning salt) and fresh lime juice. But papaya also makes for an incredibly refreshing agua fresca perfect for helping you stay cool in the hot summer months.

You should also know that the seeds of the papaya are totally edible. If you've never tried them, puree some of the seeds with the papaya to add a light peppery undertone to your agua fresca.
