This simple mojito recipe is light and fresh – perfect for a hot summer day! One of my favorite things about a Skinny Cucumber Mojito is that this is really easy to split into two recipes so that you can also have a non-alcoholic drink to serve.
Every time I make myself a cucmber mojito, I cannot resist making a batch of cucumber mint water. It’s so easy to knock out making both at once. If you plan on making the Cucumber Mint Water you will need to plan on letting it sit overnight. The water is the perfect drink to throw into a water bottle and go with.
How to Make Cucumber Mint Water
2 large cucumbers, sliced
3-4 stems of fresh mint
2 gallons filtered water
Combine all ingredients in a large, container and let flavors mingle overnight before drinking.
Also, since this mojito is sweetened with Stevia it is a perfect little indulgence that will not mess up your diet 😉
