Strawberry Mojito Popsicles #SummerDessertWeek

by Erin

This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek. While I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies, as always my opinions remain my own and I was not otherwise compensated. This recipe contains alcohol and is only for adults 21+.

Summer isn’t complete with mojitos or popsicles so why not combine them into one?

I don’t normally fall into the stereotypical “basic white girl” categories: I never wore UGGs, don’t drink coffee let alone “PSLs”, I’m not sure I even know what Tumblr is, still don’t like Vera Bradley, don’t call breakfast “brekkies” or pizza “za”, and rarely have a clue/care about what famous person is dating/divorcing who. But I dang it do I ever love mojitos and mules. Proof? This is my second mojito recipe in a month. But hey this one comes in popsicle form and it’s a totally different fruit than last time. True, I essentially turned my recipe for a strawberry mojito into a popsicle, but that recipe s 7 years old and I’m sure you’ve all forgotten about it by now so consider this your refresher course.

This popsicle is my second contribution to #SummerDessertWeek. While yes it’s a mojito with slightly less booze frozen into a popsicle mold, don’t go handing these out to the neighborhood kids. This is an adult only treat and I promise you’ll be glad you have to keep them all to yourself. You could even get all fancy and serve them in a glass of prosecco or something else bubbly. But what do I know? Oh snap now I want to make a mule popsicle and serve it in ginger beer. Thank you for joining me in this train of thought. Now go check out everyone else’s recipes for today and enter the giveaway located at the end of this post!

What a great idea! I have not yet made any popsicles this year, but definitely want to make these. I’m ready to run out to the grocery store to get strawberries (before breakfast!) to make these…
