BLOOD ORANGE MOJITO RECIPE

Refreshing, fruity and slightly sweet, with a touch of tanginess – this delightful blood orange mojito recipe is perfect for sipping when the sun’s out.

It’s healthier than traditional summer cocktails (aka those high-sugar, syrupy concoctions served up at the pool bar,) and much lighter too.

This mojito recipe uses fresh, whole blood oranges which are naturally sweet and delicious!

Easily turn this into a mocktail NOjito by omitting the rum and adding a bit more sparkling water, or orange juice – unless they have the blood orange italian soda at your local store…

Then try half that and half sparkling water, to keep the sugar content down but add a little kick! 🙂

BLOOD ORANGE HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS

Blood oranges contain the same super antioxidant as blueberries: anthocyanins.

Unlike other citrus fruits, blood oranges contain anthocyanins, the same red flavonoid pigments that give blueberries and blue honeysuckle berries their intense colors and amazing antioxidant properties. 

Antioxidants protect our bodies from the effects of free radicals which are unstable molecules that promote the development of many degenerative diseases and pre-mature aging of the skin.

Large amounts of free radicals are formed when our bodies are exposed to pollution, cigarette smoke, drugs, toxic wastes, stress, aging, and UV radiation.

Even more the reason to load up on antioxidants!
