Nothing tastes better in warm weather than enjoying a fresh strawberry daiquiri (paper umbrella optional). Unfortunately, most store-bought and ready-made daiquiri mixes are not only full of added refined sugar, but also artificial dyes and preservatives. Fortunately, making a fresh homemade strawberry daiquiri is not as difficult as it sounds. All you need is a good blender and a few simple ingredients.

Even better, when you're making your daiquiri at home, you can make it fit your dietary needs. Going low-carb or sugar-free? No problem. This recipe is for you!

You can use frozen strawberries instead of the fresh and ice, but use a little less than you would the fresh option. Traditionally, daiquiris are made with lime juice, but lemon juice still tastes great.

This sugar-free frozen strawberry daiquiri recipe uses the natural sweetness of strawberries and is also family-friendly as it can also be made without the rum for a virgin summer drink for adults or kids.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup washed, hulled and sliced strawberries (see note for measuring)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 (1 1/2-ounce) jigger rum
  • Small handful of ice (not needed if berries are frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Preparation

  1. Place recipe ingredients and a small handful of ice into a blender and process until well blended and slushy.

Alcoholic Beverages on a Diet

Unless your doctor tells you an occasional drink is off limits for you, and unless you have a tendency towards abuse, recent research tells us a little (1 drink or less per day for women; two drinks or less for men) could be a good thing for our hearts.

Other Summer Cocktail Choices 

  • Gin and tonic (or vodka tonic)
  • Jack and Coke (made with diet cola)
  • Scotch and soda
  • Seven and Seven (Seagram's 7 and Diet 7-Up)
  • Rum and diet cola
  • Rye and ginger (rye whiskey and diet ginger ale)

Measuring Note: In order to do a nutritional analysis, I decided to go with the sliced berries since there is less variability compared to when measuring whole berries. This is about 3/4 cup medium-sized whole berries or 80 grams of berries.

Texture Note: To improve the consistency and texture of any blended drink, freeze at least two-thirds of the ingredients. In this case, you'd go with frozen strawberries if possible. This will help you eliminate the ice, and thus avoid unwanted ice chunks in your drink.
