Happy Monday!

How about a recipe?

Ever since I pinned this on Pinterest, I haven't been able to get it off my mind.  Doesn't it look delicious?

{This recipe is originally from Heather Ross Blog}

We spent the weekend in my home town visiting my family {we crashed the little brother's new place} & one of the highlights of our visit was sipping on these amazingly refreshing Mojitos!

Here's what you'll need: 2 cups frozen strawberries
                                              1 can frozen limeade
                                              Pulp of 2 limes
                                              A few mint leaves
                                              The original recipe called for rum, but we made ours non alcoholic

Watch out for little brothers who come along & swipe a strawberry {right at the moment you're taking photos for your blog}.  Stinker.

Cut up two limes & remove the pulp from them.  If you've got a cute hubby, have him do it for you.  

Shred some mint leaves {I used 3} & mix them in with the lime pulp.

Throw the frozen strawberries, frozen limeade, & lime/mint mixture into the blender & combine.

Make sure to frost some glasses in the freezer a few hours ahead of time.  This will add to your Mojito experience--I promise.

Pour your Mojito mixture in your frosted glass, slide a slice of lime around the rim, dunk a straw in, & kick back & pretend you're on a beach somewhere.  Ahhhh, yummo.   What a perfect way to end a hot summer day!

**Notes from my kitchen:
The first batch of Mojitos  I made came out a little too tart for everyone's liking.  I wasn't sure if it was the limeade concentrate or the lime pulp that added the extra zing, so on the next batch, I used a little discretion.  Instead of adding an entire can of limeade mix, I added a little at a time {ending up only using about half the can}.  And I only used about half of the pulp/mint mixture, as well.  This batch was a little more sweet & a little less tangy.  Really, you can just tweak it to your own taste or the tastes of your guests.  If you like it extra tart & tangy, add more limeade concentrate & lime pulp.  Prefer a sweeter drink, with a little less pizzazz?  Then go easy on the lime.  Just play around until you find the perfect balance for you.  You can't go wrong with these yummy ingredients.  So have just have fun & enjoy!


  1. Sounds yummy! Thanks for the recipe :) I prefer my drinks sweet.

  2. That sounds so good! We have mint growing in our backyard so I will definitely have to try these

  3. oh man! I want one NOW!!! :)

  4. Yummy! I must make these this weekend for a nice summer treat. At first I was like "bummer" since I saw that the drink was a mojito and I am prego, but then I realized I didn't have to add the rum. Thank you for sharing this recipe...I'll have to let you know how they turn out!

  7. Myself and a friend co-hosted a Baby Brunch this past Sunday for a fellow Brookside Mothers' Association mom and we served your delicious strawberry mojitos! All the guests loved it and I cannot wait to try out your new festive drink you just posted on the blog! I'll let you know how that one goes after I try it out!
