Lighter Strawberry Daiquiri

Okay, I have to admit that I’m addicted to my blender lately! That being said you will love this strawberry daiquiri using frozen strawberries!!!!  I couldn’t believe how smooth the texture was and how well it stayed blended.  Only caution is you have to be careful… these suckers are STRONG but a lovely way to get in some servings of fruit!

Printable Recipe

Serves:2

What you’ll need:

  • 3 cups Frozen Strawberries (A 21 oz bag will be fine, but you may want to buy 2 bags!)
  • Strawberry Rum (I used bacardi dragonberry rum- it’s strawberry flavored!)
  • 1 Lime
  • Mint leaves for decoration
  • Sugar (If you like it EXTRA sweet!- But trust me this is not needed)

Directions:

Measure 3 cups strawberries and put in blender.  Pour the amount of rum you’d like (I used 1/2 cup but you could use 1/4 cup rum and 1/4 cup water).  Add juice of 1/2 lime and blend until smooth.

You may find that you will need to add some water to smooth it out a bit… add it by the TBSP though so you don’t water the flavor down too much.  See variations below on tips to add more flavor.

Add some mint on top and Enjoy!

This should make 2 small daiquiris.

Other variations:  Instead of adding 1/4 cup water try adding 1/4 cup lemonade (use crystal light if you’re watching your calories).  Try adding 1Tbsp peach schnapps. Go ahead and blend some of the mint right in with the daiquiri (I LOVE mint!)
