Frozen Mojito Pie

I’m not a good thief.

This Frozen Mojito Pie story will tell you why.

A few weeks ago I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room, chatting with the others, looking through magazines, reading, and enjoying the “You might be suffering from XYZ” articles, and “Take ABC Drugs for only 200$ a pill”.

I then came across this photo.

What I did next is something that any of you would have done; I ripped the page off and shoved it in my purse! Quickly!

The entire ride home involved thoughts of cold Mojitos and frozen pies. Ahhh.

As soon as I arrived, I opened up my purse, took out the photo and… panic! Where’s the RECIPE?!?

All I found was an ad for Milk – no recipe!

I thought that the recipe would be on the back of the photo. (Isn’t that where they always are?)

I was so nervous to tear that page from a magazine that did not belong to me, that I did not even think to see if there was a recipe somewhere near the photo. (insert “duh” emoticon here.)

Sigh…

After a long search, and a couple of hits and misses, I found the one!

  3. You crack me up! I’ve “stolen” recipes on many occasions, and I always feel bad about it, but I think everyone does it. Fortunately you were able to find the actual recipe online! Looks delicious! I love mojitos 😉

    Awwwww man…I don’t have any cream cheese or whipped topping. 🙁 We had mojitos last night for dinner, and I’d so much love to use the rest of my mint to make this beauty. I’m bookmarking the recipe though so I can make it later. I just gotta try this! 🙂
