And that means PARTYING and maybe a little over-indulgence. You may have gone down that road already and if so…
Don’t worry; I have a quick and delicious recipe I like to call a DETOX MOJITO that is loaded with superfoods and alkaline ingredients to help keep you feeling strong all summer long.
Normally a mojito recipe features a base of soda water and simple syrup or something like sprite. LOTS of sugar.
However, in my superfood version, I use a coconut water kefir as the base. I also add several other ingredients that are phenomenal for your health.
Well, lemme tell ya! 🙂
Benefits of Coconut Water Kefir
Coconut water kefir is loaded with essential enzymes and probiotics that help with digestion, elimination and boosting your immunity. You know that your gut is the center of your health and wellbeing. Some health professionals even call it your “second brain” because of how much it influences your moods, mindset, emotions, energy and immunity.
Probiotics are essential for keeping your gut happy and functioning top notch. Almost every health issue out there can benefit from the use of a few more gut-balancing probiotics.
Benefits of Stevia
Stevia is a 100% natural, zero-calorie sweetener that not only sweetens your mojito, but comes with some health benefits!
It is derived from a green leafy plant in South America. Stevia can lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, may help prevent heart disease and is one of the only sweeteners that won’t spike your blood sugar. *use in moderation
Benefits of Organifi
Organifi is my favorite green superfoods blend on the market right now! It tastes amazing, has a nice fresh mint flavor and is balanced with great superfoods. As far as nutrition goes, Organifi is loaded with B vitamins, zinc, iron, micronutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.
Annnnnnd… if you drink organifi before partying, it may help to decrease the effects of your hangover.
Shake it up carefully (not too quickly or you’ll disrupt probiotics)
Pour into glass and garnish with a lime circle and more mint
This detox mojito is proof that healthy food can taste absolutely amazing. AND when you drink something like this, it is completely guilt free, leaves you feeling energized and refreshed and sends love to every single one of your cells.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
