Fruit-Sweetened Mojito Recipe

Fit from every sip!


Makes : 2 servings


  • 1 tsp finely grated lime zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup light rum (optional)
  • 2 cups roughly chopped fresh ripe pineapple
  • 2-3 fresh pitted dates, plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp minced ginger, plus more to taste
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed mint leaves, plus more to serve
  • 4 cups ice cubes, to serve
  • 2 cups sparkling water, to serve


  • Throw the lime zest, lime juice, rum (if using), pineapple, dates, and ginger into your KitchenAid Power blender container, secure the lid, and blast on high for about 30 seconds until the dates are completely pulverized. Add dates and ginger to taste, and pulverize again, if adding extra.
  • Add the mint leaves, secure the lid, and pulse for 5 to 10 seconds until the mint is rustically broken up into small pieces but not completely pulverized.
  • Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the blended mixture. Top with sparkling water, and garnish with mint leaves. Enjoy immediately.

Prep Notes: Depending on the sweetness of the pineapple and the tartness of the limes you juice, more dates may be required.
