Tips and Substitutions

Making a daiquiri in a blender is not difficult, but if you're having a few hiccups, any problem is easily fixed.

  • Be sure to blend everything completely; nothing is worse than a rogue chunk of ice or frozen strawberry. If when you stir before pouring into a glass you find a few chunks, go ahead and blend things up again.
  • If you want your frozen blended daiquiri to be a little thinner, feel free to add some juice, orange liqueur, or use less ice.
  • Add extra flavor by throwing in some other fruits: banana, peach, pineapple, coconut, orange, lemon, lime, pomegranate, and raspberry all play very well with strawberries.

Blending Together

Whether you're going for a modern frozen blended strawberry daiquiri, are jonesing for a mocktail, or want to throw it all together using a mix, you can blend it all together however you want. Go ahead and toss in some extra fruit and consider yourself as having achieved your goal of a full serving of fruit, too.
