Frozen Strawberry & Lime Daiquiri Recipe

Frozen Strawberry & Lime Daiquiri Recipe

Strawberry daiquiris and I go back a long way. To grade five, to be exact, when my parents and I took a trip to Hawaii. Sure, I remember feeding a gigantic Parrot Fish out of my hand while snorkeling, watching the sunrise over Haleakala Crater and dunking my head underwater to hear the nearby humpback whales calling to each other. Despite these amazing experiences, my memory continuously veers towards the hours (seemingly) that I spent sucking virgin strawberry daiquiris through straws. My regular poison up to that point was Shirley Temples, the ubiquitous drink of the pre-teen crowd. Let me tell you, those strawberry daiquiris beat out Shirley and her Temples by a country mile.

As we draw closer to the peak of strawberry season, the bright red fruit becomes more fragrant and intensely sweet. Strawberry patches are filling up with eager pickers and families trundle home with baskets full of fruit. These sweet berries pair beautifully with savory ingredients in salads and classically with chocolate in desserts such as a Strawberry and Chocolate Cream Cheese Napoleon.

If you are looking for a way to cool down quickly as the days heat up, pull out the blender and whip up a batch of frozen cocktails in less than five minutes. Whether you are overlooking the ocean on a Hawaiian beach or sitting in your backyard, these drinks are sure to make you feel as though you are on a mini-vacation.

The recipe:

The first step is to find the sweetest strawberries you can.

Hull and quarter them.

looks perfect for summer parties! If I don’t want the alcohol, do you know if I just leave it out or sub it with something else?

Thanks, Megan. If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, leave out the rum and replace the liquid with a little club soda.

LOVE! I want one later today! Such pretty shots

7 Rachel @ Baked by Rachel May 13, 2011 at 8:10 am

I so want this. Sadly my mission for the summer is to create lots of equally delicious non alcoholic drink alternatives *sniffle* but please have another for me? Pretty please :)

Hi Rachel, this one works beautifully as a “virgin” drink. Replace the rum with some club soda.

Dara, you just brought back many childhood memories of enjoying these fruity, slushy drinks. Beautiful. You have also reminded me that it is time to go strawberry picking before the season passes us by :)
