Store bought Strawberry Daiquiri mix is sweet and filled with lots of sugar. It is so easy to make your own and you don’t have to wait for strawberries to be in season.
In a blender add strawberries, sugar, hot water and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator.
This mixture can be added to your morning smoothie or even a bowl of oatmeal. Of course, that is if any is left after making wonderful Strawberry Daiquiris!
2 cups strawberries. I use frozen, but if you have really fresh strawberries, feel free to use those.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water; hot – almost boiling. This will slightly thaw the strawberries and dissolve the sugar.
1/2 cup lime juice; preferably fresh
3 oz light rum
3 oz dark rum
1 oz pineapple juice
4 oz strawberry daiquiri mix
Blend with 2 cups of ice in a blender until smooth. If you have a Margarita Frozen Concoction Maker, this drink is perfectly made in this machine. The texture and taste will transport you back to the Island!
