Frozen mint juice

Not traditionally Indonesian, but for years I have been served it at different private houses in Bali so the secret is out. A perfect hot weather cooler that everyone loves.


  • large handful mint leaves
  • 100 ml (scant ½ cup) lime juice (4-5 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • ice


Put the mint, lime and sugar in a high-speed blender and top up with ice. Blitz to a green slush - the mint leaves should break down to small flecks. Tip into a jug, top up with water and taste. Add more sugar or lime juice to taste. Serve at once.
