Ingredients

  • mint leaves
  • 0.5  lime
  • 1  Teaspoon  Truvia Spoonable
  • 2  Ounces  coconut rum
  • ice
  • seltzer water

Directions

In a tall (12-ounce) glass, add mint leaves, the juice of half a lime, and Truvia. Using a wooden muddler, muddle the mint into the bottom of the glass. This will relase the mint flavor and help dissolve the Truvia. The mint will tear; this is totally normal. Pour in coconut rum and stir to combine. Your Truvia should be dissolved at this point. Fill the glass to the top with ice and pour in seltzer water. Serve with an extra wedge of lime and enjoy!

Coconut Shopping Tip

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
