Mint Mojito Smoothie is bangarang.
Three days deep into daylight savings, folks! Have you broken out your sarong, Ray Bans, patio furniture, and margarita glasses? One extra hour of daylight and already I’m fantasizing about laying on the beach with my snorkel mask on and cocktail in-hand. Except by “laying,” I mean “riding,” by “beach,” I mean “mountain bike,” by “snorkel mask,” I mean “helmet,” and by “cocktail,” I mean “water bottle.” So essentially, I’m ready for summer, I dunno about you’uns.
If you have a strong relationship with your blender, there’s a high chance you’ve dabbled into the cocktail fusion smoothie. Fresh herbs, zesty, creamy island flavors all up in your smoothie stash? Sonofabeehive, let’s blend a mocktail smoothie! It’s a cocktail that’s not a cocktail because it’s alcohol-less (virgin)…and it comes in the form of a smoothie (breakfast). The smoothie that’s undergoing an identity crisis (seeking therapy). The cocktail that has made it through both the 12-step program AND all the Weight Watchers meetings (what a champ). Okay, I’m done.
Anyhoo, while I was developing smoothie recipes for my cookbook, Delicious Probiotic Drinks, I had a grand ol’ time experimenting with everything from mocktail smoothies to the Chocolate Beetroot Smoothie to the Superfood Green Smoothie, from the window to the wall…
And because I’m OBSESSED with coconut milk in all its creamy coconut-y splendor, one of the recipes I included in my book is this exact Mint Mojito Smoothie. The lime, the coconut, the banana, mint…It’ll hang with you on the beach (it’s lazy)…or in your water bottle (it’s versatile). If you want, you can put alcohol in it (encouraged).
The folks over at Food Fanatic are sharing my Mint Mojito Smoothie recipe today AND they’re giving away three copies of my cookbook. Slingshot yourself right on over there, get yourself some smoothie, and enter the giveaway so you can make all sorts of naturally fermented probiotic drinks!
