These frozen mango mojitos are a refreshing riff on the classic mojito with mangoes, mint, lime juice, and a vanilla-orange simple syrup that adds a flavorful twist. They are nonalcoholic so you can enjoy them all day long.


Units Scale

For vanilla-orange simple syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 34 wide strips of zest from 1 medium navel orange (see Note 1)
  • 34 wide strips of zest from 1 large lime (see Note 1)

For mango mojito

  • 4 cups peeled and diced fresh mango chunks
  • 6 tablespoons vanilla-orange simple syrup
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 cups ice cubes
  • 810 mint leaves
  • Optional garnish: mint sprigs, lime slices and/or dried orange slices


For the vanilla-orange simple syrup

  1. Heat. In a small saucepan, stir together the sugar, water, vanilla extract, orange zest, and lime zest; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Steep. Cover the saucepan and let steep for 45-60 minutes.
  3. Strain and chill. Using a slotted spoon, strain out the orange and lime zest and discard. Chill the simple syrup until ready to use (see Note 2).

For the mango mojito

  1. Blend. Place the mango chunks, simple syrup, lime juice, ice, and mint leaves in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve. Pour the mango mixture into glasses and garnish as desired.


  1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the colored part of the peel with as little white pith as possible. 
  2. To quickly chill the simple syrup, put the saucepan into a bowl of ice water being careful not to get any water in the pan. Stir the syrup until it is cold.
