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.

Ingredients

  • 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)
  •  

Instructions

  • 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, about 4 hours.
