You guys! I managed to grow something in my garden without killing it!  That’s right, I made this Frozen Coconut Mojito using the spearmint from my backyard spice garden. This was my first year growing spices and I believe the mint is the only thing that did swimmingly.  Most of what went wrong with the other spices/veggies was user error as I had NO clue what I was doing.  For example, I had beautiful, vibrant green cilantro that grew and for some reason I thought I had to wait some time to harvest it.  Well, I waited too long and it flowered and is now super tall and grew coriander. Also, I planted too many zucchini in a small area and therefore not one of them grew.  Live and learn!  Lucky for me, mint is a weed and the easiest to grow.  I felt so proud picking the leaves and putting them into a drink recipe – homegrown tastes so much better 🙂

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

This Mojito was perfect.  Anytime I can make a frozen version of one of my favorite drinks I definitely go for it.  They can be tricky as you need to have just the right amount of ice, but I always say start with less and you can always add more ice if need be.  If you add too much right off the bat, you’ll end up with a drink that’s way too thick and icey.  The cream of coconut and coconut rum give the perfect balance of coconut to the lime and mint flavor.  This just may be your new favorite refreshing cocktail, but I have all of my blended drinks together in one post that you can feel free to check out.  If you’re not a mint person, here is my absolutely favorite blended Pina Colada.  Also, this two minute blender limeade is SO good if you’re loving the lime.  Enjoy!

    It’s been so hot…I’m totally feeling frozen drinks and coconut right now! This is very timely. And I congratulate you on the mint! As someone who has a lot of difficulty keeping her herbs alive, I am inspired! : )

    Congrats on your spearmint! This year my garden is acting temperamental! BTW – Your mojito sounds so refreshingly delicious!

    Wow – you grew your own spearmint? How cool is that? We’re not allowed to have gardens in my neighborhood, so I am totally jealous.

    This looks so refreshing and I love that creamy consistency. Yay for homegrown mint, that is awesome!

    It is so rewarding growing your own food isn’t it? Sadly a rabbit found my garden this year so it’s not looking so good 😕 Glad your mint did so well, just make sure you plant it in a container so it doesn’t overtake everything around it over the next few years!

      Yes it’s in a container!! We also have a peach tree that we worked hard on pruning, etc. and a family of deer came one night and ate every last one right when they were ready to be picked. I feel you pain! Lol
