Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 cups water

Instructions
 

  • After you have washed and sliced strawberries (or just use frozen), put them in the blender along with the rest of the ingredients.

Resources of Fresh Strawberry Daiquiris

This recipe for fresh strawberry daiquiris is incredible. If you want it stronger, just use 1 less cup of water.

About Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris

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 of 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 the Wal-Mart Great Value brand of frozen whole strawberries and they were excellent.
