My Strawberry Mocktail recipe takes fresh mint, honey, lime, and strawberries to make a delicious blended, virgin cocktail. So sweet, zesty, and refreshing! And since this is a virgin strawberry cocktail, be sure to make plenty for the kids, too!

Just a few warm weather days have me itching to break out my favorite summer recipes: Rhubarb Crisp, Strawberry Lemonade, and this Strawberry Mocktail.

It’s tasty anytime of the year, but with strawberry season approaching, this will be especially delicious. Just another use for those fresh-picked strawberries! We pick extra and freeze them to enjoy that peak flavor all year long. Here’s how to freeze strawberries.

This recipe is inspired by my Strawberry Mojito Mocktail. It has the same delicious flavors, but made into a blended strawberry drink. Kind of a cross between a smoothie and a daiquiri. You might also like this Strawberry Pineapple Mojito!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • A non-alcoholic treat that the whole family can drink all summer long.
  • No processed sugar.
  • Homemade mint simple syrup. Blends quickly and gives this drink a mojito-like flavor.
  • Refreshing!

Key Ingredients

Ingredients for a strawberry mocktail: limes, strawberries, honey, and mint.
  • Honey – We’re making a simple syrup with honey instead of white sugar, just plain better for you. You can use a stevia based sweetener if you want to cut calories.
  • Fresh Mint – A few sprigs of mint makes the syrup so rich and flavorful, and makes a beautiful garnish to boot!
  • Strawberries – Absolutely the best when in season! You can also use frozen strawberries instead.
  • Fresh Lime – Use both the zest and juice Fresh is best! Bottled lime juice does not have the same flavor. A citrus press will help you get every last drop.
  • A blender is necessary to blend the mocktail. I love my Vitamix, but your average blender will work fine.

With just 4 ingredients, you’ll have a mouth watering, refreshing virgin cocktail! These fresh ingredients are what make this blended strawberry mocktail special and totally harmonious.

This is an overview of the instructions, be sure to see the recipe card for all the details.

  1. Heat the honey, water, and mint to in a small saucepan on low to make the simple syrup. Once well combined, let cool and stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the mint, transfer the syrup to a container, and cool in the fridge.
  3. Add the strawberries, cooled syrup, lime zest, lime juice, and the ice cubes to a blender.
  4.  Blend until smooth, pour into glasses and garnish with fresh mint and lime slices if desired.

Expert Tips

  • To hull the strawberries, stick a straw through bottom of the strawberry towards the stem. The stem will pop right off. Hulling allows you to not waste a bit of strawberry. You can also use a strawberry huller, or just cut the stems off with a paring knife.
  • You can use either fresh or frozen fruit. It’s nice to use fresh strawberries when they’re in season, and frozen during the winter. If you use frozen, omit the ice. Using frozen berries will result in a thicker drink that’s more slushy (YUM), if you like it to stay thinner, just a bit of water.
  • Make the simple syrup ahead of time. You can also adjust the amount of syrup based on your preferences. If you have any left over, add it to some sparkling water or another mocktail to add flavor and sweetness.
  • Roll the citrus. Gently roll the limes on your countertop to loosen them. You will get more juice out of them this way.
  • Since this is mojito inspired, it calls for mint, but you can change the flavor profile with more herbs for a variation. Basil and rosemary, for example, both pair beautifully with strawberries and would be absolutely delicious.
  • Sub out some of the strawberries for raspberries and/or blueberries.
  • Add a bit of sparkling water to make things bubbly! It adds no sugar, no calories, but makes this drink a whole lot of fun. If you try it, add it AFTER you blend!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can you use in place of strawberries?

Almost any fruit will work to make this mocktail a different flavor. I recommend, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or peaches. All of these pair well with the lime and mint.

Can Mocktails be alcoholic?

A mocktail is a nonalcoholic cocktail. If you add alcohol to a mocktail, then it becomes a cocktail. Mocktails are great for those wanting to eliminate alcohol due to pregnancy or any other reason.

Are Mocktails good for health?

They can be if they are made with the right ingredients. Due to the fact that there is no alcohol in them, they are better for you. But not all mocktails are created equal, some are sugar laden and wouldn’t be considered healthy.


This Strawberry Mocktail is best consumed immediately. It will keep in the refrigerator for a day, but the ingredients may separate a little. Simply run it through the blender.

While it isn’t recommended to make the mocktail ahead of time, you can make the simple syrup ahead of time. That will keep in the refrigerator for a week or two.

  • Vitamix or blender
  • strawberry huller optional
  • paring knife for cutting stems off the strawberries
  • citrus zester
  • citrus press optional, makes juicing the limes easier.


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 fresh mint leaves plus mint sprigs for garnish
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries hulled
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 2 limes
  • lime slices for garnish


  • Make simple syrup by combining honey, water and mint leaves in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Heat until honey and water are well combined, remove from heat and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Remove mint leaves and chill.
  • Place strawberries, simple syrup, lime zest and lime juice in a blender along with a few ice cubes.
  • Blend until smooth, or desired consistency.
  • Serve in glasses garnished with mint sprigs and slices of fresh lime.


  • For an even lighter version of this, substitute the honey with a stevia based product. Just make sure you check a conversion chart, because depending on the brand you use, they may not substitute equal parts. Swerve is equal parts, Truvia is twice as sweet as honey.
  • Make it a cocktail by adding a shot of rum to each glass.
  • You can use either fresh or frozen fruit. If you use frozen, omit the ice. Using frozen berries will result in a thicker drink that’s more slushy (YUM), if you like it to stay thinner, just add a bit of water.
  • Make the simple syrup ahead of time. You can also adjust the amount of syrup based on your preferences. If you have any left over, add it to some sparkling water or another mocktail to add flavor and sweetness.
