Frozen Mojito Smoothie

Frozen Mojito Smoothie Drink

You're about to learn how to make the coolest frozen mojito!

You’ll never believe that this super delicious tropical drink is actually a healthy green smoothie in disguise.

I absolutely love mojitos, and they are my mixed drink of choice when I go out to a bar. But the mojito drinks in bars are loaded with sugar and alcohol. Not so healthy. And they’re quite expensive.

So years ago I searched the internet for a good mojito drink recipe, and learned how to make my own mojitos at home, just the way I wanted.

Lately I have been cutting back on drinking alcohol, especially hard alcohol. Not because of any strict rules or anything, just because I find that as I fill up my body with healthy foods that make me feel good (such as healthy smoothies), I crave less of the stuff that’s bad for me, and naturally stay away from hard alcohol.

But then summer rolls around and I’m craving that unique mojito taste. What to do?


And the cold, smooth and refreshing texture of healthy fruit smoothies keeps me full and satisfied, making me less likely to crave ice cream and junk food. It helps me lose weight and stay healthy.

Fruit shakes are awesome any time of day – from breakfast to dessert or any time in between. It is perfect as a meal replacement or as a healthy snack.

Are you still new to making smoothies? It’s easy, all you need is a blender.

But if want some excellent tips on the best techniques and smoothie ingredients, be sure to first read about how to make a fruit smoothie. Then return to this page and choose your free recipe!

Don’t fall into the rut of making the same fruit smoothie every day. Below you will find my absolute favorite fruit shake recipes. Some are easy, old favorites, while others add a fun new twist.

I hope you enjoy! Be sure to tell me what you think about these fruit smoothie recipes in the comments below :)

Try a Mojito Smoothie!

Finally, problem solved! I invented this frozen mojito recipe that has that same delicious taste as regular mojitos, but in smoothie form!

I make this smoothie without alcohol…it’s the mojito flavor I crave, not the rum. But feel free to add some rum if that’s what you’re after.

Throwing a party? This frozen mojito drink recipe is perfect!

Party guests will love the mojito taste, and it’s much easier on you, the host, instead of making a ton of individual mojito drinks by hand. It’s fast, easy and fun.

Or maybe you’re just craving a special treat, something different from your regular everyday smoothies. This is definitely a fabulous treat, especially on a hot afternoon, or for a night in.

What Makes This Smoothie So Good?

The mint and lime are what give the smoothie its mojito taste. You don’t want to go overboard on either ingredient though, because they both have strong flavors.

Spinach adds substance to the smoothie and creates a nice green color (without creating a yucky flavor, I promise!)

The banana adds natural sweetness and, like the spinach, has a mild flavor, so it won’t compete with the mint or lime.

Add a bit of honey if you want to make it sweeter. But you don’t need too much, because the other ingredients already make it quite sweet.

Ready to give it a try? Here’s the recipe…


Frozen Mojito Drink Recipe

Handful of fresh mint (about ½ cup)

Juice of 1 lime

1 cup spinach

1 banana

¼ cup water (or club soda)

Ice

Dash of honey – optional

Blending Instructions

Add all the ingredients to the blender, in that order.

Start with a small quantity of ice (a few ice cubes), blend for a while, then taste it with a spoon. Add more ice if you want a thicker consistency or add more water if it is too thick and hard to blend.

This recipe makes about 2 cups...1 big serving or 2 smaller servings.

If you’re throwing a party, increase the quantities accordingly. And consider serving these mojitos with fun straws, and maybe garnishing it with fresh lime wedges.

Your friends will love these mojito drinks!

Update: The same day that I created this Mojito Smoothie Recipe, I told my sister about it and she made her own variation!

She added milk instead of water, and a little bit of Greek yogurt, and she loved it! She enjoyed her creamier version of this mojito smoothie.
