I love mojitos! I love them even more now that I have a stash of them in the freezer on popsicle sticks. Go to Marshall’s or Ross and pick up an inexpensive ice pop mold set for about six bucks and get to work!
1/2 cup Sprite Zero or soda water + 1 packet stevia
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 handful fresh mint leaves, chopped
1.5 oz white rum
Juice of 1 lime
1. Combine raspberries, mint, rum, and lime juice in a blender or food processor and pulse to break up the raspberries.
2. Add the Sprite or soda water + stevia to the mix and stir to combine. Pour the cocktails into 6 ice pop molds and freeze overnight.
3. To remove an ice pop from its mold, run the mold under hot water for a few seconds.
These mojito ice pops are very refreshing and low calorie! Each ice pop has only 22 calories. If you’re hoping to get a bit of a buzz, experiment with adding more rum. Be careful, though! Too much will keep the mixture from freezing!
