mojitos, less problems

I have so many things to write about that I don’t even know where to start. My mind gets all jumbled up like that sometimes. Going in a million directions… a million thoughts. Summer does that to me. Wanting to do it all, take it all in, not forget any of it. So thankful for my blessings and for the One that bestows them upon me. So inspired by everything around me; the flowers, the ocean, even the hot, sticky air. But, at the same time frozen. Hoping that by being still and breathing slowly, these days will not pass by too quickly.

But, I know they will.

Sorry. That was probably the strangest lead in to a mojito recipe ever written. And I promise I didn’t even have one before I wrote it.


While we were at the beach, I perfected my coconut mojito recipe. They are so tasty, and the only calories come from the rum- basically a diet drink. Everyone knows you have to stay hydrated during the summer. And now everyone knows that I travel with a mason jar full of mint.

Skinny Coconut Mojitos

Muddle some mint (I usually use one to two mint sprigs… I like mine minty) with some lime juice (at least 1/2 of lime). You could add a little stevia or agave nectar here if you’d like. If you prefer, go ahead and use real sugar (you rebel). I prefer mine to have a stronger lime/mint taste, so I omit the sweetener. Next, fill the glass or jar with crushed ice and then add a shot of rum. If you prefer, go ahead and add two (you lush). Fill the glass to the top with coconut La Croix. Give it a stir, throw in a stripy straw and enjoy. But first, send me a picture of it because I always forget to take one.

Happy Friday, my friends. I hope your weekend does not pass by too quickly and that you get to slow down and enjoy it.

  1. I’m laughing at the intro to the skinny mojitos. As I was reading, I thought “this is about mojitos, right?”, ha! I love the randomness and stream of consciousness. It’s basically how my mind works, too, so I get it. I’m also wishing that the summers days would slow down.
    By the way, coconut La Croix is my favorite 🙂
