Sparkling Summer Probiotic Mojito
This “healthier”, sugar-free Sparkling Summer Probiotic Mojito, is refreshing, delicious, super easy and quick to make. Might I add- it is also beautiful, the strawberries, blueberries, and limes give the drink a fun, festive look! I really love to experiment with different foods and recipes, tweaking the ingredients until I can find a healthier version.
My very dear friend, who is quite the foodie, was visiting from North Carolina last week. I told her I was trying to make a pretty and healthy version of a “patriotic” looking mojito for my blog. We had a fun afternoon muddling the fruit, changing measurements until we can up with the perfect concoction!
This mojito is so refreshing and easy to make. I do not make “fancy” drinks, we are seriously talking 5 minutes to make these.Grab some cute straws at your local craft store and goblets or even some mason jars and you are ready to really “WOW” your guest!
Before we started playing in my kitchen, my girlfriend and I made a trip to the local Williams Sonoma to get inspiration. We found great help from the awesome employees who are not only very knowledgeable but super helpful and friendly! Check out how practical but adorable the Domaine Shatterproof Outdoor Goblets are!
In addition to these mojitos tasting so refreshing, and they are easy to make- they have some added health benefits as well. They have no added sugar, they are very low calories, and they actually have probiotics, which is excellent for gut health! I might be a little addicted to Kevita Sparkling Probiotic drinks (they are so good!).
Just a little snippet about gut health and the importance of probiotics: they are live micro-organisms, the “good bacteria” in your gut. Probiotics boost your body’s natural microbiome. They can help break down non-digestible components of your diet. The can overpower the bad bacteria producing beneficial compounds that can be converted into energy, ultimately maintaining balance in your digestive system.
I really love all the Kevita flavored drinks! I have found them at all my local grocery stores including Target!
This drink is really refreshing and delicious, it is so nice to have an adult beverage option that is NOT laden with sugar! Enjoy especially for Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
