Agua de Chaya – Healthy Friday Happy Hour in Mexico
Happy hour in Mexico often means cervezas and margaritas (and added flab) for most. But on our last visit to Riviera Maya, we discovered this nice bikini-friendly alternative: agua de chaya.
Made from the indigenous chaya plant (sometimes referred to as tree spinach), it’s about as good for you as a libation can be. Think ultra-refreshing with a clean, lime-infused taste. In this way, agua de chaya stands in stark contrast to all the syrupy sweetness associated with a poorly produced margarita. Plus, as a bonus, chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron; and it’s a rich source of antioxidants.
