Get your blender out and a few of those frozen bananas in your freezer, because you are going to have a smooth, sweet and yummy drink. Who needs the beach when you can bring the umbrella drinks right to your house.
This drink reminded me of a smoothie
with a kick. I made these Mango Daiquiris
G rated first, poured each of my kids a small glass then added the Rum and blended a few more seconds. I was feeling good for dinner. I did not want to drink alone and this recipe was due to post on Thursday!!!
I might try adding some frozen strawberries to replace the mango in this recipe for a little change.
When making the simple syrup make a double recipe and store it in the fridge. It will last a while and it is great for sweetening up Iced Tea or many other festive drinks. Just put the extra syrup into an old jar or plastic container and it will be waiting for you when you need it.
I am trying the new Florida Crystals,an organic sugar, so my simple syrup came out brown but did not affect the color of this drink. Cheers.
I halved this recipe just for the kids and I and will probably double easily too.
Barefoot Contessa’s Mango Banana Daiquiris will be a go to summer recipe.
