Sitting in the sun with a frozen drink? Sign me up! These frozen Strawberry Banana Daiquiris are easy to make and perfect for a hot summer day! They involve fresh fruit, rum, a little sugar and orange juice, and lots of ice!
Don't daiquiris make you just want to jump on a boat and go on a cruise somewhere?
Or at least some kind of tropical vacation where you sit on the beach all day and miraculously forget you have a job or responsibilities or a driveway to shovel back home.
So, how about jumping on a plane and heading to a beach where there's a cabana boy who mostly stays out of your way until he sees that a) you need your umbrella raised and b) your glass is empty.
That's more like it. Siiiiigh. Let's go now.
OK fine, a daiquiri at home will definitely take second place to a full-on tropical vacation. And I speak from experience when I say it's tough to find a good strawberry banana daiquiri.
Sure, you can get a plain old strawberry one. You can also get a Pina Colada. And even often a "Miami Vice" (alright, yes, those are pretty tasty and fun looking). But I've been told no to my order of a strawberry banana daiquiri on more than one occasion.
It all stops here, friends. I'm living on my own terms. I can't be the only one who loves that strawberry banana combination, right?
In my original recipe, I used a bottle of Bacardi Light Strawberry Daiquiri that the brand sent me. Obviously a daiquiri is really easy to make with a mixer!
But daiquiris are also really easy to make from scratch and that's why I'm also sharing this easy frozen strawberry banana daiquiri recipe with you now.
All my strawberry banana dreams can now come true in my very own kitchen. Cabana boys need not apply. I got my own blender, yo!
For this strawberry banana daiquiri, you'll need:
- Light Rum
- Granulated Sugar
- Orange Juice
If you do have the Bacardi strawberry mixer (or any rum-based strawberry mixer), you can use that instead of the rum and sugar.
How to Make a Strawberry Banana Daiquiri
Step one: Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend.
Step 2: DRINK!
Yup, that's all you have to do.
Well, you may want to pour the drink in a glass first.
But if you live alone and nobody will find out, you don't have to. I'd probably do the same. You're in a no judgement zone here, friend.
A little strawberry and banana garnish may help contribute to giving you that island feel.
And a fun straw.
And hopefully a nice hot summer day! Though I wouldn't argue with you if you made this strawberry banana daiquiri to enjoy by your fireplace in the middle of winter!
You have no idea how happy I was to sip on this frozen tropical drink. Especially knowing it didn't contain a bajillion calories and wasn't all syrupy sweet.
A strawberry banana daiquiri made with fresh strawberries and bananas? Amazing!
I'd also totally pour that Bacardi over rocks and sip on that, too. Isn't summertime the absolute best?
