This is the creamiest banana daiquiri you have ever tasted! It’s delicious, sweet, and you can’t even taste the rum. In fact, it’s slightly like a banana milkshake, but doesn’t taste too heavy where you can only drink half of it. My father in law (Cliff) is diabetic, but has a slight banana daiquiri obsession. Due to this, I wanted to create one with less alcohol, and more natural ingredients. This is the frozen banana daiquiri I came up with, and since it’s Cliff approved, I KNOW you will love it too!
This is a great way to use up some of your bananas that are about to go bad, since those bananas are the sweetest as well. Peel them, wrap them in tin foil, and freeze them until you are ready to make a banana daiquiri. I also decided to mix it up and not use regular brown, or clear rum. I am using a new banana cream rum by Blue Chair Bay, that I saw a friend of mine (Jessica – Frapps & Frills) try recently. They have quite a few flavors and I’m planning on using the pineapple cream one in a Pina-colada. To keep it creamy, I added some almond milk, which also has less sugar. If you want to make this drink a virgin one, then sub out the alcohol for more milk of your choice.
See the recipe below with all the ingredients and instructions. It’s super easy to make, and you can cut the recipe in half if you just want to make one for yourself. I will say you at least need a good blender though to get the ice crushed up well and blended.
FROZEN BANANA DAIQUIRI
- 2 Frozen Bananas
- 1/2 Cup Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum Cream
- 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
- 2 Cups Ice
- 1 Cup Almond Milk Add more as needed to blend
- Maraschino Cherries for Garnish
- Freeze your bananas ahead. This is a great way to use up old bananas that you think you are going to throw away. Simply peel them, and freeze them in tin foil.
- In a blender add your frozen banana, rum cream, lime juice, half of the ice and half of the milk. Start blending it.
- Add more liquid as needed to blend and add the rest of the ice. Keep blending until smooth.
- Pour into your glasses, garnish with cherries and enjoy!
So what do you think? Would you use your old bananas to make yourself a frozen banana daiquiri?
