Mojito-sicles





On a hot day, these mojito-sicles make great pitta popsicles as they relieve the heat in the body and the mind from excess pitta dosha.  The lime and coconut also lend cooling properties as well as electrolytes needed to restore balance after exercise in the heat.


  • Muddle 5 or 6 large fresh mint leaves with 2 tsp organic sugar.  
  • Add the juice of 1 lime and 2 cups of coconut water.  
  • You can drink this mixture as is, ice cold, for a refreshing and replenishing beverage on a hot day or during exercise.  
  • Or pour it into popsicle molds and freeze until set. You may strain the mint leaves or leave them in. Pour into ice cube trays to make a fun and refreshing addition to your guests' water glasses.

If you don't have coconut water on hand, simply use tap water.  Mint is refreshing, invigorating, cooling and soothes indigestion, bloating and gas. enJOY the many benefits of this vibrant green, aromatic and flavourful friend.
