Matcha Green Tea Mojito — A fresh drink recipe just in time for the warm weather! So light and refreshing!
Have I mentioned that I love mojitos? Because I LO-VE mojitos.
Mojitos and me. Me and mojitos. We go together just like me and mojitos.
So much so that I worked it into my favorite meal with this mojito salad dressing. It hasn’t touch the peanut butter turf yet, but I wouldn’t put it passed me to see it down the pipeline.
But in the meantime, I’ll knock back these minty fresh cocktails all summa long.
And hey, let’s throw Spring in there too for good measure. 😉
St. Patrick’s Day may be under our shamrock belt buckles for 2017, but I can’t turn down for what a green machine of a cocktail like this one for another flippin’ year. No, no. We get green, and we get it NOW.
Plus, matcha is like turmeric’s BFFL, and make up a power squad when you throw in spirulina and coconut oil. Fighting off evil villians…big whoop. How about fighting off cancer and boosting metabolism? Yeah, you better step fantastic five.
What I’m trying to say is that this is the green smoothie of happy hour. Light, refreshing, and full of green shit
…or rather antioxidants.
If I were to guess what floating down a mountain spring in the middle of summertime…on a cloud…in Tahiti was to taste like, it wouldn’t be this mojito. But it’d be pretty darn close. 🙂
I’ll keep testing them just in case I ever get the chance to give that event a swig.
