I wouldn’t be honest with you or myself if I didn’t say that making all these Thirsty Thursday posts was a tad bit difficult since I’m now not drinking. At least Price is enjoying them. He has become the designated taste tester when it comes to boozy drinks.
But with this Banana Daiquiri I had a really easy time making it virgin without really effecting the end result… just don’t add the rum in. Duh! So I was really excited for this recipe for this week’s Thirsty Thursday post. Amanda picked this week’s Daiquiri theme since tomorrow is National Daiquiri theme. Perfect.
This Banana Daiquiri is so simple and so good. Pefect for the heat wave that has been beating the crap out of the northeast this week. It is such an easy recipe to halve or multiply easily. You basically make 2 drinks every time since you are limited wha tyou can fit into the blender, that 3 cups of ice will do that! But it’s worth it since this icy bevie is so refreshing. 🙂
Amanda made a super refreshing Watermelon Daiquiri. I have a watermelon just waiting for me to cut into it. I think it wants to be turned into this daiquiri. If watermelons had feelings and thoughts I’m sure it would tell me to do just that…
Makes 4 drinks
- 2 large bananas, divided
- 1 cup coconut milk, divided
- 1 lime, juiced, divided
- 1/2 cup sugar, divided
- 6 cups ice, divided
- 4 ounces white rum, optional, divided
- Into a blender add half of each ingredient.
- Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
- Pour into 2 tall glasses, and repeat for 2 more drinks.

So since this has banana and coconut milk, it’s almost like breakfast, right? Because I want one right now.
I drank mine at breakfast. I won’t judge. But mine was virgin, if you add the rum then I am impressed, jealous, concerned…
OMG so good! Another please!
