This Green Goddess Mocktail Recipe is full of good-for-you ingredients like apples, kiwis and fresh lime juice so you can drink your nutrients and feel great, no alcohol necessary.
I'm a big fan of loading my mocktails up with plenty of fresh fruit, herbs and juices. And this green goddess drink is no exception. It's sweet, green and a total crowd-pleaser. Plus, it's easy to make with ingredients that might already be in your fridge!
Ingredients for Green Goddess Mocktails
Here's what you need for these healthy and refreshing mocktails:
Pineapple juice. You can make your own with a juicer or buy it from the store.
Lime juice. This is best freshly-squeezed.
Kiwis. Remove the peel first to avoid any fuzziness.
Granny smith apple. This time, leave the skin on for added fiber and nutrients.
Raw honey. You can also use maple or bee-free honey if you're vegan.
Ginger beer. Sparkling water is also a nice way to top your mocktails.
How to Serve Green Mocktails
I'm all about garnishes when I make mocktails, including these green goddess drinks. Here's what I recommend you use for garnish:
Fresh thyme or another herb, like rosemary or basil
Kiwi slices (peeled)
Fresh lime wedges
Can I Make the Mocktails Ahead of Time?
Yes! This is a great make-ahead drink recipe for a party. You can make a big batch and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for one to two days. Just add the ginger beer or sparkling water at the last minute so it stays fizzy!
In a bowl, add the pineapple juice, lemon juice, sliced kiwis and apples, mulling (crushing) everything together until fruit are fully broken down. Add in the honey and salt, mixing everything together until combined.
To Make Mocktails: Add crushed ice to glass(es), Add 3-4 Tbsps of mulled kiwi and apples to bottom of glass, followed by ⅓ cup of mocktail liquid mixture until glasses are ½ filled. For additional garnish, sliced kiwis, sliced apples, and lim wedges, and a fresh thyme sprig. Top with ginger beer or sparkling water. Repeat for every serving.
Sip and Enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
STORAGE: Leftovers (without ginger beer) can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed jar for up to a week.
SWEETENER: Instead of honey, you can always use Agave, maple syrup or create a simple syrup by boiling water with organic cane sugar to sweeten.
MAKE AHEAD: You can make the mocktail mixture up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate in an airtight container or jar. The day off, simply slice/chop fruit and assemble.
SERVING: To make additional mocktails, simply double or triple ingredients, depending on need.
