Citrus Basil Mojito Pops Recipe
These ice pops are the perfect balance of orange, lemon and lime, plus I added fresh mint and basil from my garden which adds just a hint of flavor inspired by my favorite cocktail – mojitos! You can make these with or without the rum, I made them without so I can share them with my toddler.
1 1/4 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
8 tsp raw sugar, or your favorite sweetener (raw honey for Paleo)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp lime juice
3/4 cup water
8 fresh mint leaves
8 fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp rum (optional)
Squeeze the orange juice, I used about 2 to get 1 1/4 cups. Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour about 1/3 cup into each popsicle molds and freeze until solid.
