Mojito is one of the best ice cream flavors. We serve it at our cafe, a dairy-free ice “cream”, and it’s well loved. We love the addition of cucumber, so I’ve added it here, too. These popsicles are the perfect grown-up celebration treat.

For those who enjoy alcohol, like my hubby, it’s super fun and restful during an afternoon or evening gathering to present adult popsicles as an aperitif of sorts!

In this recipe I use spearmint essential oil, because it’s so good. You could sub in a few leaves of fresh mint, sure! And you can choose which Paleo alcohol you like best. My hubby likes gin best. Tequila and potato vodka are considered the best Paleo choices.

To read up on Paleo drinking here are two posts that look at health and alcohol: one and two.

Cheers to friends and get-togethers! May these be a fun addition.

Recipe Notes

*This is my favorite spearmint essential oil. It's very potent, so just a dash will do it. A lovely accent!
