Frozen Banana Daiquiri

Take your tastebuds to the tropics with this creamy frozen banana daiquiri.

It’s sweet, boozy, and to die for!

This recipe makes a nice thick frozen banana daiquiri. It’s like a cross between a boozy milkshake and a smoothie.

Top it off with a dusting of cocoa powder or a wedge of pineapple.

What’s the Best Banana Liqueur for Cocktails?

Banana flavoring has a bad reputation for being chemically overwhelming. Plus, it doesn’t usually taste like bananas.

So, if you’re using real bananas for your daiquiri, why bother with the liqueur?

Well, you can’t always guarantee how “banana-y” your bananas will be. And if you’re drinking a banana cocktail, you want the flavor front and center!

So, if you like natural banana flavor, I recommend Giffard Banane du Brasil. It’s got a nice, light caramel note, but the banana fruitiness is front and center.

Another fantastic option is Tempus Fugit Crème de Banana which is just slightly more expensive. It’s got more caramel flavor, leaving the banana as a nice, pleasant note in the background.

I love them both and they make excellent cocktails!
