Hey guys! :D
So one of my presents I got for my birthday was a blender, and I love my new toy! I can't wait to blend everything in sight and I had a look at what I had around the house and realised I had some ingredients for one version of a banana daiquiri. I actually did have some Malibu left over that would be perfect but decided seeing it was a Tuesday evening it may not be the best time for cocktails! ha ha ..
I thought it turned out pretty well so I will share what I did with you:
You will need:
A blender (obviously haha)
A tray of ice cubes
1/2 - 1 pint of water
3 tsp of lime juice
Caster sugar to taste
Makes approx 2 servings
1. Empty a tray of ice cubes into blender and pulse once or twice to crush the ice. Then break up bananas into pieces and put into blender on top of the ice. Blend again until mushy.
2. Add water slowly until desired consistency (I stopped at a smoothie like consistency).
3. Then add 3 tsp of lime juice and pulse 2-3 times to mix.
4. Add tablespoons of sugar until desired sweetness (I think everyone likes a different sweetness) so after adding each tablespoon, blend and test a little bit for the right taste for you.
TIP You can also add more lime juice for more tanginess if you want it to pack a punch! You can add a splash of rum (if you are of the legal age to drink of course!) to make it into a proper daiquiri but this one is just as yummy in my opinion.
You can use other fruits aswell or instead of banana but this is what I had in the house at the time and it was delicious! (Strawberry is still my favourite though!)
So give it a go if you have a blender and let me know what you think of it! I am loving blending things now so let me know if you have any yummy recipes for me to try :)
