Trying to stay on track this summer but don’t want to miss out on the fun beach and barbeque drinks? Try out this lightened-up cocktail recipe!
Did you know that traditional mojitos can have up to 25 grams of sugar? This refreshing version has only 1 gram of sugar and requires just a few simple ingredients.
This Skinny Mojito recipe is also super customizable – try muddling your favourite fruit with the lime and mint for a fun twist on the traditional version. Blackberries, strawberries, pineapple, mango…the options are endless!
Make a big batch for your next summer hangout! You could even serve this as a mocktail and leave out the alcohol if you’re looking for a non-alcoholic beverage everyone can enjoy.
Try it out this weekend!
