Healthy Strawberry Mojito Mocktail

Mocktail, not cocktail.

Healthy Strawberry Mojito Mocktail
I've told you before that mojitos are my favorite drink, and the reason for that is the flavor of the mint and the limes combined. 


Usually a mojito has rum in it but this drink has no alcohol. And the loads of sugar that usually accompanies a mojito are replaced with protein packed Greek yogurt! My heart is singing. And so is my waist line!

Healthy Strawberry Mojito Mocktail
    makes 1 mocktail
Zest and juice from 2 whole limes
12 mint leaves
1 C fresh strawberries
1/2 C fat free, plain Greek yogurt (I like Chobani)
1 packet sweetener {I use Stevia}*
A few pieces of ice
Splash of juice {optional}

In a blender, zest and juice your limes, and add the mint and strawberries.
 Add a few pieces of ice and blend everything together. Once smooth, add in the yogurt and sweetener and blend again until smooth. 

*A few tips: If it is not sweet enough for you, add more sweetener or a little bit of honey. Also, if your limes and strawberries do not give off a lot of juice, you can add a splash of juice.

Now you can enjoy your favorite {or at least MY favorite} summer time drink in a healthy way! Also, it's so quick to make. It has taken me longer to type this up than it did to make the drink.

This is a great breakfast option if you don't like a big meal. It would also be a fun virgin drink to serve up for brunch if you are having guests over.

  4. With the warm weather we've been having in LA, a mojito sounds perfect. I've also given up alcohol for a healthier lifestyle so this mocktail is absolutely perfect for me. Cheers! :)
