The inspiration for this recipe was after one of my favorite cruises. I loved their frozen mojitos so much, I made them at home.

But, who wants to lug out the blender every time? That’s where mojito popsicles came in. I often bring Mojito pops and Drunkaroo Dip to every summer gathering I attend.

Best alcohol to use for mojito popsicles

The mojito (drink) is made with white rum, as it makes for a crisp, lightness over dark rum.

Can I make sugar free mojito popsicles?

Yes, simply switch the granulated sugar for your sweetener of choice! I recommend a 1:1 switch from sugar to erythritol (Swerve).

FAQ

Can I make mojito popsicles with other ingredients?

Pineapple pieces are a great addition to these pops.

If you do not have sugar, you may use simple syrup (just be sure to taste test to your desired sweetness).

How long do I need to freeze them?

Freezing for at least 6 hours is recommended, preferably overnight.

How to prevent freezer burn

Make sure your popsicles are covered. I like to use a pre-made silicone popsicle mold with a top. These pops will keep in the freezer for up to a month.

Best way to store large quantities

Having a large party? You can remove these from their molds and place them in freezer bags for storage until reaching your desired quantity.
