First, cut the pitahayas in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Add the pulp to a blender along with the lime juice, sweetener of choice, and 3-4 cups of water.
Blend on high until no chunks of fruit remain, then pour the mixture into a jar or pitcher. Add the rest of the water and stir. Taste and adjust the sweetener to your preferences.
Transfer to your fridge to chill for a few hours, or serve your agua de pitahaya immediately over ice with lime, lemon, or more pitahaya wedges. Happy drinking!
It is normal to have seeds in your drink. If you prefer fewer seeds, pour the mixture through a mesh strainer into your pitcher.
Stevia makes a great replacement if you want a healthier option. For reference, 2 tablespoons cane sugar is equal to 1 typical packet of powdered stevia (or an 8:1 ratio).
