Mojito Mocktail Juice Recipe
This is my take on a traditional mojito cocktail without sugar and alcohol. I swapped out the sugar for pineapple juice, rum and soda for coconut water and added a salt rim to be a little fancy.
It has a sweet and tangy taste with the traditional minty lime flavour and aroma coming through. The salt rim just made you want to lick the rim as you drank the juice. Very refreshing!
- 2 limes
- 1 handful mint leaves
- 1/4 pineapple
- 750ml coconut water
- Sea salt for rim
Juicing Time: 2 mins
Juice Qty: 1000ml
- Thinly slice off the outer skin
- Juice whole
- Slice off the outer skin
- Cut into 2 chunks through the centre core
- Juice each piece separately
- Remove the leaves from the woody stems
- Juice whole handful at a time
Create the salt rim on your glass first to allow time for it to dry while you are making the juice.
To make the juice start with the cap of the juicer closed so you can blend the ingredients together in the juicer bowl.
Begin with the handful of mint followed by the two limes.
Next, add the pineapple pieces one at a time.
Finish by pouring half the coconut water through the juicer. Remember to release the cap to let the juice out when it reaches the top of the bowl.
Pour the remaining coconut water into the juicer to finish.
Salt Rim: use a lime wedge to wipe around the outer rim of your glass. Spread sea salt onto a small plate. Tip your glass upside down and shake slightly to coat the rim.
Coconut Water is a highly nutritious, cleansing, and refreshing juice that is packed with vitamins and minerals. Coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known. It’s a natural isotonic beverage with the same level of electrolytic balance that we have in our blood.
Coconut water has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones.
When you think of limes think of cleansing your Lymphatic system.
They may only be small but do not let the size make you think they don’t pack a punch. They are ultra-hydrating and electrolyte-producing because of the mineral salts.
Limes also contain some of the most highly absorbable vitamin C around.
Fresh-squeezed lime offers bioactive calcium that your body craves, antioxidant flavonoids for fighting disease, and they help purge many toxic substances like plastics and synthetic chemicals.
Tip: fresh lime juice squeezed onto a small cut or abrasion is a powerful disinfecting, antibacterial aid.
Beneficial for respiratory system issues such as bronchitis, asthma, and respiratory inflammation.
Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, B-complex, beta carotene, iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese, and potassium.
It is wonderful for digestive ailments such as nausea, indigestion, ulcers, halitosis, and flatulence. It can also provide relief from headaches, sinus congestion, sore throats, fatigue, stress, and anxiety.
Mint can help promote blood circulation and improve metabolism making it an excellent choice for cleansing and weight loss.
Strengthens the immune system. Look at the amour of protection around the flesh. The fruit can take up to 2 years from flower to fruit. It has to outlast all four seasons... twice!!!
This resilient, strong nature of a single pineapple gets passed onto us when we consume them.
Pineapple has large amounts of vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain, an enzyme that helps suppress coughs and loosens the mucus that often accompanies colds.
The power of bromelain and vitamin C work together as a bacteria fighter, mucus cutter, cough suppressant, and overall immune system booster in the body.
