I love a good mocktail. Honestly, I've made so many mocktails on this blog that have highlighted almost every flavor and while I enjoy fruity ones the most, this Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea is definitely a high contender. There's just something about this minty fresh, perfectly sweet, smooth, and refreshing feel that you get from this mocktail, especially with the transition of the Spring season that'll be happening soon. The creative flavors in this drink makes it the perfect sip for dinners, brunches, and even fancy occasions. It's super versatile----much like these no-alcohol Traditional Bloody Mary Mocktails.
Plus, because it's totally alcohol-free, it's something that can be enjoyed with the entire family. Oh and if you're looking to get that warm vanilla, toasted spice, and velvety decadence of dark rum which is traditionally in a mojito----no worries! I love using Ritual Zero Proof, which has AMAZING alcohol-free alternatives to actual alcohol flavors to help bring together your mocktails in a great way and their Rum Alternative is perfect for this particular mojito mocktail.
Either way, everyone is guaranteed to love these! Be sure to watch all recipes via IG Reels for a nice visual!
And if you're in the mood for something tropical with a hint of fruity, then I recommend trying my Pineapple Jalapeño Lime Mocktail because it's the best balance between sweet + spicy.
Overall, this Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea is super easy to make, requires just a handful of ingredients, comes whipped together in 10 minutes (or less), and is the perfect balance between refreshing + the right amount of sweetness. For a smooth, thicker flavor + texture, I recommend using a 100% coconut blend like Lakewood Organic's version, which is a nice addition by the way! However, you can always use pure coconut water for a thinner texture.
Traditional Coconut Mojitos are made from simple handful of ingredients: mint, rum, and lime juice that's combined with cream of coconut.
Overall, coconut moijtos are on the healthier side especially with the presence of Vitamin C from the use of lime. In addition, combining mint and lime also has been linked to helping with digestion. Lastly, again due to the lime and mint combination, mojitos are rich in calcium.
The first thing you can make for these mocktails for a fancy/fun feel is the ice cubes, if you don't plan on using regular crushed ice. You can literally add lime + basil leave pieces in your favorite ice cube tray, top with coconut water, set it and forget it for a minimum of 3-4 hours (or overnight) until ice cubes are formed.
Then, you whip together the honey-green tea simple syrup and mocktail ingredients and assemble. Serve and enjoy!
First and foremost, the flavors in this simple and easy Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea is enough to convince anyone, however, here are a few more reasons why you'll love this recipe:
Here’s what you need for these Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea:
If you’d like to serve this as a cocktail, you can add your favorite alcohol to the mixture. The best alcohol for a classic mojito is white rum, which is a slightly sweet liquor----making it perfect for fruity or minty drinks. As I stated before, Ritual Zero Proff has a delicious Rum alternative to bring this drink together. However, these other types of alcohols (just about 1 ounce or so) can work great with this Coconut Mojito Mocktail with Green Tea flavor combo also:
Absolutely! I like to add a bit of natural sweetener to most things that I drink, including this Coconut Mojito Mocktail. Maple syrup is a great option because it's vegan and has antioxidants, much like honey which adds additional nutrients. However, you can try any healthy sweetener substitutions you like.
The Best Healthy Sugar Alternatives + Substitutes list is all about finding better ways to enjoy your favorite sweets without compromising your healthy lifestyle. For those who follow a vegetarian and/or vegan lifestyle, this lists offers a few great ideas to incorporate healthy sweeteners into your diet.

While green tea is completely optional if you want to omit it entirely, I wanted to share a few alternatives which can add great flavor to this coconut mojito mocktail as well. Yes---green tea is one of the healthiest teas in the world, comes loaded with antioxidants, and is great for glowing skin, but I can understand if you aren't a fan of green tea (especially the "grassy" taste) or just want to switch things up. So, here are great options that you can add:
One of the greatest phenomenons when it comes to ice cubes has been seeing super clear ice cubes from those clear ice cube systems or molds and wanting to try it, but not necessarily wanting to have a huge contraption in my freezer. Haha. Anyone else feel my pain? Whelp, no need to worry----I've done my research and tested it out a bit and have found some solutions to help those of us who don't have any fancy system to making clear ice cubes. Here are a few ways:
Tip #1: It's best to use water that is distilled or super filtered to avoid gasses and dissolved oxygen, which are the two things that cause our ice to "fog up" when frozen.
Tip #2: Boil your water and freeze your water hot. Again, much to my previous point, this removes any dissolved oxygen or gasses. Just be sure to carefully pour the hot water into your ice cube tray or mold-----preferably one made from materials that naturally insulates like silicone. Also, ensure that your tray lays FLAT while freezing.
Tip #3: Slow freeze your ice cubes. This should be done for about 24 hours, which allows any impurities to be forced out of the ice---resulting in much clearer ice.
