Kiwi Mojito Popsicles Recipe


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup rum (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 5-6 kiwi, peeled


In a medium saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat to medium-low, and add mint leaves.  Leave to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Strain out the mint leaves, and pour the strained syrup into a blender.  Add the rum, fresh lime juice, and 4 whole kiwis,  pulse until blended.  (If you would like, you can strain the mixture again to remove the kiwi seeds, but it’s up to you!)

Pour the mixture into small Dixie cups, and freeze for an hour (or more) until the top of the popsicles are frozen.  After slice the remaining kiwis to make thin coins, and use a knife to make a small slit in the center of each kiwi.  Insert a popsicle stick into the slit, and then place the kiwis on top of each popsicle, pressing down just a little bit to be sure that it (just barely) sinks into the popsicle.  Freeze until completely frozen.

hello! if you don't mind me asking, how much weight did you lose with the detox? i'm debating on going on it c:

If done correctly you should lose at least seven pounds in a week! I managed to lose ten though as I pumped my exercise routine time up by an extra twenty minutes! (I was dying to fit into a new dress I had bought!)  X

hi i see you did the jason vale juicemaster plan. i am thining of doin it starting tomorrow what do you think to it ? did your weight stay off? was the detox symptoms bad?X

Hello! I do highly recommend the Jason Vale Juice Detox! The weight did stay off, yes - but remember doing the juice diet alone won’t make you lose weight, it does have to be combined with adequate exercise. If i remember correctly I completed an hour on my exercise bike every other day (and still do!) You do have to be careful when going back onto solid foods again (Although the book will tell you what sort of thing to eat and when to eat it). I actually still do the detox twice a year - just to revitalise my body and give it the kickstart that it needs! Your’ll find that the first two days you may feel completely and utterly sluggish/tired. But by the third you will feel active, healthy, and so energetic!

Hello. I was wondering how you planned your Ghibli tattoo. I am planning on getting one some time next year of either Ghibli or anime and really love how yours is set out. Your tattoo looks amazing btw :)

Hello! Firstly - sorry for the stupidly late reply. I started off by printing out various snippets/screen shots from the movies which I loved, and quite literally bought about twenty sheets of tracing paper. I just traced over various characters I wanted to incorporate and just played around with the composition until I came out with something that I was happy with! My tattooist did clean it up for me once I took my final edit into the shop though! X
