Guiltless Mango Mojito

Guiltless Mango MojitoF

Football season is almost upon us, and everyone has been asking me for simple tailgating recipes and ideas. Have you tried Lo Fruit Beverage? It’s is a healthy swap for sugary beverages and diet drinks that was specifically created with diabetics in mind. Drink one on its own or mix it as a cocktail like in this Guiltless Mango Mojito. It’s the perfect beverage to serve at outdoor parties, tailgate parties, for Labor day or just while relaxing on a hot day!

LO Fruit Beverage is a great tasting low sugar, and low carb fruit beverage. One ten ounce serving of LO Fruit Beverage contains the same amount of calories (35 – 45), carbs (8 – 11 grams), and sugars (7 – 10 grams) as found in one whole fruit. It is also a certified low GI (glycemic index) product,  clinically tested by Glycemic Index Laboratories, kosher, vegan, and gluten free. LO Fruit Beverages are available at natural foods and specialty grocers across the U.S. such as Whole Foods, select Walgreen’s, H-E-B, and Rite Aid stores, and also online here.

Non Alcoholic Mojito: Kid Friendly

Spring is here and what sounds better than a mojito or a Non Alcoholic Mojito? While my daughter, Leigh and I were in Phoenix, we had the most fabulous meal at Deseo located inside the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa. Behind Deseo’s inventive concept and menu development is James Beard Award-winning Chef Douglas Rodriguez, widely-regarded as the inventor of Nuevo Latino Cuisine. Leigh had never had Latin Cuisine, and she was a little skeptical at first. We sat at the ceviche bar and watch the chefs create the most beautiful and wonderful plates one after the other. The service and the food is one of the best meals we had while in Phoenix. If you are in Phoenix or Scottsdale, it is a must dine. The staff insisted that Leigh try a Non Alcoholic Mojito which was filled with raspberries and fresh sugar cane. As soon as we got home, we tried to recreate this refreshing beverage. So here you go!
