Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe Frozen
Strawberry Daiquiris with Frozen Strawberries
If you want a quicker version, go ahead and use the frozen 1 pound bag of whole strawberries in place of fresh strawberries. At times, those are actually cheaper than fresh strawberries and the flavor is still great. It saves time as you don’t have to cut the ends off each strawberry. It’s also safer in case you’re making a 2nd batch, as you won’t need to handle a knife after having consumed the first batch.
Also, we’ve tested Wal-Mart’s Great Value brand of frozen whole strawberries and they were excellent.

Ours takes about a minute to run through its cycle with various automatic pauses. If yours doesn’t have such a cycle, you can consider simply running the blending process with a few start and stop actions until you get your desired consistency.
