Strawberry Mojito Slushies

Strawberry Mojito Slushies from

I had some extra strawberries and since I love love mojitos, I had to try to make strawberry mojitos yesterday but what better way to beat the heat than to make them into slushies. If you own a blender like I do, we both need to make more frozen drinks! Right?

What did you do for July 4th? We were absolutely boring and made chicken pot pies. That makes no sense right? And we watched our neighbors do fireworks on their driveway. We totally do this every year but this year, we have some great outdoor furniture to enjoy them on. I can’t wait to share with you what we got from World Market!

Other things I’m absolutely loving right now are: blueberries!! And guacamole. Seriously, Curtis keeps asking me to make tacos. every. week. He could eat crunchy ground beef tacos every other day. And I have to make guacamole with them. I’m so excited that California Avocados are in season…Florida ones don’t cut it and CA ones are just the besttt. So that means, Curtis will get more tacos and guac coming up…but don’t tell him that I’m okay with having the same thing over and over again. I like to continue to give him a hard time or maybe make him think that I’m doing him a favor? Haha

And these babies, I really really want to take up canning because I love strawberry jam so much.

Strawberry Mojito Slushies Recipe

Yield: 3 8-ounce drinks

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


3 cups chopped strawberries (stems removed, about 1 pound)

about 3 Tablespoons simple syrup (1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, directions on how to prepare below)

10 fresh mint leaves

1/4 to 1/3 cup citrus rum (optional)

3 1/2 to 4 cups ice


Add strawberries, simple syrup, rum and ice to a blender and pulse until blended and ice is crushed. Pour into three 8 ounce glasses and serve with straws and garnish with mint.

How to make simple syrup:

It's really easy, just mix equal parts granulated sugar and water in a medium saucepan or pot and bring to a boil. Mix until the sugar has dissolved and then remove from heat. Add 5 to 8 mint leaves and allow to cool completely. The stronger the mint flavor you want in your mojitos, the longer you should infuse the mint leaves. It should only take a few minutes to make simple syrup! You'll have extra so you can store this in the fridge for a few days.

    I posted Strawberry-Lime mojitos last week {and I even tried to healthi-fy them by making simple syrup with honey instead of sugar since I”ve been trying to cut excess sugar out of my diet}! Mine weren’t frozen, but these look like such a refreshing thing to sip on in the summer. Gorgeous! Here’s a recipe for a savory way to use up those perfect berries — Strawberry Quinoa Salad:

    I love strawberry mojitos, but never though to turn them into a slushie! You should look into making freezer jam – much easier than canning!

    Ahh! These look so good especially with all this heat! I can’t wait for my next mojito – might have to be a strawberry one when FL strawberries kick back into season :)

    And I’ve been obsessed with blueberries lately.

    What I love most about Strawberry season, is my granddaughters 2.5 & 7 yo – are strawberry picking angels!!! This Nana gets to share the joy of creating something from something they picked with their own to hands. So far we’ve nailed strawberry smoothies and of course, my own grandmothers strawberry jam canning recipe! Gotta love traditions!

    We didn’t do anything for July 4th! It was my first day of work after 5 or 6 weeks of vacation. So that was kind of silly.

    And loooove these mojitos! So pretty and fresh and perfect for summer.
