Lemon Mojito Popsicles

Mojito Popsicle

Summertimeee.. and the living’s easy, and refreshing. I love Mojitos and could drink them till the sun goes down. Here’s a recipe for everyone to enjoy (minus the children). It’s the classic Mojito recipe with a small twist. It’s lemon based with no lime ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a simple recipe, photos and ingredients listed below. With fresh squeezed orange and lemons, make sure to add a little of the pulp for good nutrition.

All the yummy ingredients!


ย start, run to the store and grab any ingredients you may be lacking. This recipe calls for the following; 4-5 oranges, 1 lemon, sugar, mint and basil leaves. I assume you already have the Rum ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fresh-squeezed oranges and lemons make for such a crisp, bangin’ flavor. Of course you can use orange juice and lemon juice if you prefer. Slice em in half and start the process of juicing.

Just using a simple, hand juicer. I stopped once it was filled it up to the top.

Chopped and pressed the Basil and Mint leafs

Press and chop

I suggest pressing the basil and mint before you chop. To press the leafs, take a spoon or knife and press down on the leafs on the cutting board. This releases a crazy amount of flavor and will fill your kitchen with a fresh scent. Then chop to fine pieces. Here’s another recipe with lots of fresh herbs and spice Thyme, Cinnamon & Nutmeg Sweet Potato Fries

I used a stack full of old jello shot containers that I never used. I then poured in the the mix. I cut BBQ skewers (kabob sticks) into small sizes. I then used two per Popsicle so that it would be easier to hold once frozen. Placed in freezer for an hour or so.
