There are all kinds of agua fresca throughout Latin America. It is simply just water, fruit and sugar blended up and as the name states: it is very refreshing (agua fresca=fresh water) and very delicious if I may say. Standard flavors for agua fresca include strawberry, cantaloupe, mango and watermelon.
I tried this version about a month ago in Southern California and knew I had to make it for myself. It may seem a little unorthodox to blend spinach, pineapple and lemon together. In a nutshell, it just works. It is tart and sweet and very refreshing. This agua fresca tastes like what a pineapple lemonade would taste like. Plus the color is vibrant and beautiful.

-1 cup of spinach, tightly packed;
