I am feeling summer in a big way and decided it was time to start enjoying those summer flavors in a big way, too! I was so inspired by the Must Drink Lemonade Recipes, that I knew a few tasty drinks needed to happen in my kitchen.
Now, if you love Lime and love a little mint…. and love refreshing drinks during the heat of the day, then this is for you. Today, I am sharing my take on a Lime Mint Freeze beverage.
What ingredients do I need to make Lime Mint Freezes?
First things first, I love limes. The smell of them makes my mouth water instantly. When I saw a similar recipe on Whole Foods, I knew I needed to make it and add my own twist to it.
If you make this delicious drink, it takes more than 1 or 2 limes and after all that hand squeezing, you will be one sad cookie. I always use a Citrus Squeeze and it makes the entire process 100 times better.
Outshine Fruit Bars are our favorite popsicles and I love that my kids always go for Peach, Lime or Coconut. I just bought Pineapple at the store yesterday, so we are excited to try that flavor out as well. So, when the recipe called for a lime fruit bar, Outshine was sitting in my freezer already. I knew it’s wasn’t too sweet and would be perfect for this recipe.
- 2/3 Cup of Lime Juice
- Fresh Mint (1/4 cup)
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Outshine Lime Fruit Bar (popsicle)
- 1 Can of La Croix Apricot Sparkling Water
- Citrus Squeeze
- Hand squeeze limes and add their juice to mint leaves, sugar and frozen Lime Fruit Bar (popsicle).
- Blend in a food processor or blender until smooth.
- Fill two glasses with ice and pour blended lime drink in.
- Top off glass with Apricot La Croix Sparkling Water and garnish with a Mint sprig.

Another tweak I made to the recipe was with using Apricot Sparkling Water. The recipe called for plain sparkling water, but I can’t stand plain sparkling water… I did however have Apricot LaCroix Sparkling Water in my fridge, so once again it was a win win for me!
I thought it ever so slightly toned down the lime flavor and introduced Apricot as a very refreshing and light fruit flavor addition.
