I’ve always loved the taste of a good mojito! The delicious combination of freshly squeezed lime juice coupled with the flavour of fresh mint was always enough to tantalize my taste-buds and perk my spirits. Wait…or was it the rum? ;)
In any case, after stocking up my kitchen with lots of fresh limes and mint this past weekend I decided to reinvent the classic mojito taste in virgin-style, sans the refined sugar, that can be enjoyed anytime of the day (including breakfast!) and won’t leave you with a hangover if you drink more than one!
Mojito Smoothie – pictured above

Big handful of fresh mint

Mojito Green Juice

Bunch of fresh mint (the more you use the better!)
Put all items through a juicer and serve
Sweeten with 2-3 drops of liquid stevia (optional) for the classic sweet mojito taste
Garnish with a sprig of mint
