Frozen Blueberry Mojitos, the perfect drink for summer. Blueberries, mint, lime and rum pureed until frosty and thick.
There’s nothing I love more than a frozen drink for hot summer days. These frozen blueberry mojitos are quick, simple and perfect for entertaining. Throw everything in a blender, puree until frosty and cool- that’s it! So much easier than muddling mint for individual mojito drinks.
This past weekend, BL and I got to work on our yard. As I’ve mentioned a few times, we are slowly updating our century-old home. Sometimes it’s fun, other times I’m ten seconds away from putting our house up for sale and moving into a turn-key option.
We’ve almost completely neglected the yard for the past year, mostly because we were busy with other projects- painting everything, installing a closet, kitchen remodel, electrical rewiring and furniture shopping (which takes me forever to edit down what I truly want). So, we’ve been planning this weekend for months- two full days of tearing out all of the plants to till and start again. Since our house is so old, the front has this gorgeous brick pattern that I want to highlight with shorter shrubs and flowers.
And then, the weather report came in. 98 degrees for both days. Since we’d already committed this weekend to the project, we decided to forge ahead- with lots of breaks in between for water, my raspberry limeade and finally- this frozen mojito.
We held out until 4PM the first day, but these came a bit earlier yesterday. Honestly, I think they gave us a little extra motivation to keep going, a few sips here and there and knowing that once we were finished- the pitcher was our reward for a job well done.
I’ve been loving fresh blueberries lately (and these drinks are a great way to use up any limp/sour ones), but I think any fresh or frozen fruit would work here. I plan on trying out watermelon, honeydew, raspberry and blackberries in the coming months.
These are also fantastic as a non-alcoholic option, so blend a pitcher up for the kids (and pregnant friends), for a fun slushy option. Either way, I think you are going to love this drink. Cheers to summer!
