Yes, popsicles have become a daily habit around here. After spending the afternoon at the lake, a popsicle is needed! I've been putting our CSA fruits to good use in our popsicle molds and experimenting with all kinds of combinations.
Since pregnancy has put a damper on my mojito consumption, I decided to make myself a nice virgin version in popsicle form. These are so crisp and refreshing! One of my favorite herbs in the summer is mint since it's so cooling. This delicious bunch of mint is from one of the local growers here and its been making my veggie drawer smell fantastic.
I love to leave the mint a little chunky in these but if you don't want mint chunks, you'll want to blend the mint longer.
Virgin Mojito Freezer Pops1/8 cup fresh mint leaves
3 tbsp honey
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/4 cups mineral water
lime slices to garnish (if desired)
In a small bowl, muddle mint leaves.
Add honey and lime juice and whisk to combine.
Pour mixture into your blender and run on low until mint is roughly chopped.
(or longer if you prefer it less chunky).
Turn blender off and mix in mineral water.
Drop lime slices (if desired) into your molds.
Pour your delicious concoction on top of the lime slices and freeze.
Enjoy on a nice hot day, preferably after lounging by the water!
