We recently ran across a post from The Yummy Life that showed a recipe, an easy one at that, for flavored frozen fruity daiquiris. Thinking it would be perfect for our upcoming Labor Day get-together, we set out to mix up a batch.
Each daiquiri contains a LOT of frozen fruit (guess you could say it’s healthy!) and the taste is simply scrumptious. The best part is, you can mix up a whole bunch of them ahead of time, pour them into 16 oz. mason jars and freeze them until you need them – just leave a little room at the top as they expaned as they freeze! The alcohol keeps them from freezing completely, so just remove them from the freezer about 10 minutes before serving, stir slightly and add a garnish!
Make a batch without the rum for the little ones and designated drivers!
Which one looks tastiest to you?
Frozen Mason Jar Daiquiris
adapted from The Yummy Life
(makes about 4 – 8 oz. servings – each batch fills two 16 oz. mason jars)
3 – 6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate
(we used about 4 oz. because we like them a little more sweet – less tart)
6 oz. light rum
4 c. frozen fruit
(we made one full batch of each: strawberry, blueberry, mango)
2 c. ice
(optional and to taste) agave, raw sugar, etc. We didn’t need sweetener when we decreased the amount of frozen lemonade concentrate
fresh fruit for garnish
Blend frozen lemonade concentrate, rum, and frozen fruit (and sweetener if needed ) in a blender until smooth. Add ice and blend again until thick and frosty. Pour into a mason jar, garnish and serve, or freeze up to one month in the freezer.
