Mango Mojito Mocktail
An easy mango mocktail with lime and mint, the perfect mojito for summer.
- .5 cup Mango fresh or frozen. See Note 1
- 2 tablespoon Water See Note 2
- 1 Lime quartered
- 6 Mint leaves
- 1 cup Soda water or alternative. See Note 3
- Extra mint and lime for garnish
Muddle lime pieces in your glass or pitcher to release the juices. If you don't have a muddler, use the handle end of a wooden spoon, or similar.
Clap mint together in your hands until the scent is released. Add to the lime. Give it a gentle press with the muddler.
Blend mango and water in a small blender to create a mango puree.
Add the mango puree to the lime and mint mixture and stir gently.
Fill the glass with ice. Top with sparkling water (or alternative) and stir gently.
Garnish with mint and a lime wheel.
Note 1: fresh or frozen mango can be used for the recipe. If using frozen, thaw before use.
Note 2: add just enough water to turn the mango into a puree. 2 tablespoons was perfect for me, but it will depend on how juicy your mango is! You may need to add a little more or less.
Note 3: the soda water can be replaced with your choice of sparkling drink. Kombucha tastes great in this, and adds to the health benefits.
