I made these Banana Daiquiris during Memorial Day weekend when I was testing out a few frozen drink recipes (the other recipe I tried was one for Strawberry Daiquiris.) These were creamy, refreshing and a little boozy, all good things in my book. I found the recipe on a whim while I was at the grocery store getting the ingredients with my little sister M and my boyfriend. The boyfriend was pushing for Banana Daiquiris because they are one of his favorites. When claiming his receipts for all his work trips to Costa Rica over the summer, his accounting office asked him why he had all these “girly drinks” on his restaurant bills. He proudly responded to them that they were his drinks and he enjoys a fruity frozen beverage. Feel free to test this recipe out for yourself and let us know if you are on the banana daiquiri boat!
- 2-3 ripe bananas
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons of lime juice
- ½ cup of sugar
- 6 cups of ice
- 4-8 ounces of rum (depending on how strong you want them)
- Place half of each of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. Repeat with remaining ingredients for second batch.
- *Can easily be made without alcohol by omitting the rum. My mom enjoyed them this way.
