Summertime is upon us, and how can we enjoy it better than to juice ourselves a delicious, but healthy, virgin mojito!
A normal virgin mojito is made with soda water, but we’re replacing that with some cucumber and pear juice.
It will cool you off, refresh you and nourish your body!
1/2 cup mint leaves (torn fresh)
1 large apple or pear
1 Large Cucumber
1/2 lime (large, cut into small wedges)
1 tsp evaporated cane juice (optional)
ice (as desired)
Muddle some mint leaves, the lime wedges and the optional cane sugar (you can use some from Trader Joe’s) at the bottom of the glass with the handle of a wooden spoon and fill up with crushed ice.
Add Cucucmber and apple/pear to your juicer, stir or shake this well and pour it over the ice
Garnish with a mint leaf and a slice of lemon.
A virgin mojito that is healthy, and delicious!
