Toping my list of all-time favorite breakfast foods is easily juice. No, not like grape juice concentrate but real, freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. So for my birthday, what more could a girl ask for than a Green Juice Mojito. Of course this lacks the rum or whatever you’d put into a true Mojito, but it guards all that intense herby-lime flavor. This version is more of a basil Mojito. If you want more of a traditional mint flavor then toss in some mint leaves, either to supplement the basil or to replace it entirely. I love the Basil enough that I would highly suggest supplementation rather than substitution.
Recipe: Green Juice Mojito
- 1 medium cucumber peeled
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 green apple
- 1 line peeled
- 1 large handful fresh basil, stem can be included if available.
First, I suggest you prep/wash all ingredients so that you can quickly whip though the juicing. Also have your juicer cleaned and ready. Or if you don’t have a juicer, then take the ingredients and run them through a blender and allow the juice to drip out while the pulp hangs in cheesecloth. That sounds like a huge drag to me, I’d just get a juicer if I were you. Or go make a real Mojito and forget about your juicing troubles.
Anyway, juice all ingredients and drink up.
Bonus juice recipe: this one’s not green but it is my all-time favorite. I often have this after a long run when I need carbs and high-quality calories but can’t stomach much food. You take equal parts carrot juice and coconut milk. Bam. Done.
