Frozen Banana Cocktails, or Banana Daiquiris are one of my favorite tropical drinks. They taste like days spent poolside or at the beach and have you longing for tropical breeze and coconut scented sunscreen. This is the ultimate recipe for a frozen banana cocktail.
My sister and I like to talk about one weekend in particular when she came down to visit me at the beach and we spent three glorious days sipping frozen daiquiris, swimming in the warm ocean water, and relaxing on the sand.
Last week I had one of those days (minus the frosty-frozen drinks) and it was incredible. The weather was down right perfect, the water was crystal clear and warm enough to swim, sea shells studded the beach and the twins were on their best beach behavior…
Of course I would have liked nothing more than to sit on that warm sand with a Frozen Banana Cocktail and sip the beautiful sun-filled hours away. So, naturally I headed home and made myself a Frozen Banana Cocktail the next day. Blended rum, cream of coconut, frozen bananas, fresh lime juice and ice all served up in a big hurricane glass.
Ingredients in a Banana Daiquiri
- Bananas – frozen bananas that is, to achieve that super thick and creamy texture.
- Cream of Coconut – I like Coco Real because it comes in a convenient squeeze bottle and tastes amazing!
- Lime – to give just a hint of tart to all that sweet.
- Ice – so that your frozen cocktail is extra thick and cold.
- Dark Rum – I prefer dark rum for this drink because it adds more flavor but any rum will do, even banana rum!
- Cute Garnishes– Lime wheels, paper umbrellas and straws…all completely optional but very fun.
It’s the ultimate in vacation flavored cocktails right along side frozen margaritas and piña coladas, that have you dreaming about afternoon naps and swim-up bars. But a word to the wise, just like a beautiful day in the sun, these babies go down really easy so proceed with caution. Don’t forget about all of the rum inside! CHEERS!
