Can I Use Frozen Strawberries Instead Of Fresh Ones?

You can if your blender can handle it. Your drink will just be more like a strawberry mojito slushie than an actual drink, and you’ll probably need less ice, if any.

Can I Make This Ahead?

You can blend everything up to a day ahead of time and then pour it over ice and add garnishes once you are ready to drink it. But this tastes best freshly made.

What Kind Of Sweetener Is Best?

The recipe calls for honey. But maple syrup will work, too. If you prefer to use a granular sweetener, it’s best to blend it in the blender with the strawberries instead of trying to muddle it with the mint.

Recipe Notes

  1. You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less sweetener according to your preference.
  2. Experiment with different variations by substituting the strawberries with other fruits like raspberries, peaches, or blueberries.

    Storage

    If you have leftovers, strain the ice from the leftovers so they don’t get watered down by melting ice. Store it in an airtight container for up to 2 or 3 days in the fridge.

    Freezing

    You can freeze this in a popsicle mold if you wish. Otherwise, freezing is not recommended.
