Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri
This drink brings back memories of visiting Hawaii and ordering a non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri poolside. You don't have to be in tropical paradise to enjoy such a delicious and refreshing dirnk. This thick and refreshing Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri is the most amazing drink you'll ever have!!
Servings: 1 serving
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups frozen strawberries - around 290 grams
- 1 cup fresh strawberries - hulled and sliced, but measured AFTER the strawberries have been sliced, mine was around 135 grams
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice - from 2-3 limes, depending on the size and juiciness
Make the Drink
Measure out 1/3 cup of the simple syrup and add it to a high-powered blender. Add the fresh strawberries, frozen berries, and lime juice and blend until smooth.
Pour in a glass and enjoy!
Simple Syrup: If you're using strawberries that aren't as ripe you might want to add more than 1/3 cup of simple syrup. Taste and add as you go.
Lime Juice: use fresh lime juice for optimum flavor.
You shouldn't need to add crushed ice (that will just dilute the flavor) because we use frozen strawberries to get the thick, cold signature texture and consistency of a daiquiri drink.
Topping idea: I've had several virgin strawberry daiquiri's that have been topped with freshly whipped cream, you're more than welcome to add some to the top for extra flair and flavor!
This makes enough for 1 large serving (around 16 oz), or 2 small servings.
