These Citrus Basil Mojito 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.

Ice pops are daughter’s favorite way to cool off in the summer, a few favorites are Pina Colada Ice Pops, Lemon and Ginger Ice Pops and Coconut Mango Pops.

These are so refreshing on a hazy, hot summer day, and I love that I know what I am putting into them. Have you ever looked at the labels on ice pops? Some of those bright colors are so unnaturally and many of the ingredients are completely foreign to me. As for the popsicle mold, sizes will vary so you make get more or less depending on the size of your mold. I bought my popsicle mold from Progressive a few years ago on Amazon, I am linking to it here for all of you who asked where I bought it. Small plastic dixie cups would work too, just freeze them for about an hour until almost set, then insert the wooden sticks so they stay in place.

  1. These look great. Would it work if I froze in a bowl and scooped out like frozen ice (ice cream scoop or melon baller) to put in martini glasses for fancy presentation?

  2. I used orange-pineapple juice because that's all I had, and two teeny tiny drop of mint extract in place of the mint leaves. It turned out ok, my three year old didn't care for them but the one year old loved them! Probably would have been better with fresh-squeezed juice but I don't think I'll make them again.

  3. These were fabulous. Made them with our two kids. We also had some of the "juice" remaining so we added some olive oil and garlic to make a marinade for chicken breasts and grilled. Delicious!

  4. I plugged just the point items into the WW recipe builder and put 6 servings (my pops mold is 6) – it came up as 1 pt each. Then when I added the fresh lime juice, fresh lemon juice, and water – they came up as 2 pts each. Strange.

  5. mmm… love mojitos. my mint didn't grow back this year (maybe the harsh winter finally killed it?) so i'll have to go get a new plant.

  6. These look so damn good this will be what I'm making tomorrow!!!
