Vegan Mojito Balls {Alcohol-Free!}

If you like a mojito, these vegan mojito balls are for you, and I also have good news, they do not have alcohol

And how is it possible that it tastes like a mojito and does not contain alcohol? 

Easy, peppermint, lime and brown sugar are the culprits that this simple dessert is so decadent and has a flavour similar to the traditional mojito.

I love this type of dessert or sweets because they are usually lighter, healthier, and prepared in 10 minutes. 

In summer, you don't always feel like cooking at high temperatures, so this recipe is perfect because you don't need to be hot; they are prepared with a blender, food processor, or food processor.

You only need six ingredients to make them, and they are all straightforward to find, except for the agave syrup, although they already sell it in most supermarkets.

If you can't find it, you can substitute it for any molasses or syrup or even sugar or dates, although the balls may be denser; in that case, you can add more lime juice or fewer almonds.

I have hardly consumed alcohol for a long time, only on special occasions and the truth is that I feel like it less and less, in addition, very rich substitutes can be prepared, with a similar taste and much healthier, such as these mojito balls or this sangria without alcohol and sugar-free.

Ideally, use a food processor to make this recipe, but I have used my Vitamix mixer since I don't have it.

I do not know if it can be done with any blender, but it is a matter of testing; the result is worth it, and even if they do not have the perfect texture, the flavour will be the same.

You can use other nuts instead of almonds or even combine several, although the ideal is that they are not toasted and that they do not have salt. 

You can also substitute lime for lemon and mint for mint; the result will be similar.

I have used white sugar; it is not the healthiest option, I know, but the brown sugar I had was very thick and did not turn out well. 

You can also go from coating the balls, they are less showy, but the flavour is still incredible.

As they do not carry alcohol, they are suitable for all audiences and have a less intense flavour but just as rich as the original mojito.

Ideally, keep them in the fridge, especially if it is boiling, because they can spoil, and they will also become soft and sticky.

To make the balls easier, I recommend that you put the dough in the freezer for at least 15 or 20 minutes and that you wet your hands, stick much less, and it will be easier to shape them.

With these amounts, about 15 or 20 vegan mojito balls come out, although they will come out more or less depending on the size you give them. 

In this case, the size does not matter; what matters is the flavour and guarantee they are to die for.
