The Ultimate Banana Daquiri

This week’s recipe is quite delicious and chock full of potassium; that would be from the bananas. There are numerous versions of this drink, but this is the one I prefer. I think the coffee liqueur really makes this one outstanding.

So let’s round up the characters of this here play…

We’ve got white rum, coffee liqueur, bananas, milk and sugar.


Place one and a half to two bananas in a blender.


Add ½ cup of white rum.


Then add ½ cup coffee liqueur.


Next add ½ cup milk.


The last ingredient is 2 tablespoons of sugar.


Now add plenty of ice to the blender…and blend.


Pour into glass, sit back and enjoy.


I’ve got a non-alcoholic smoothie and some appetizers coming up so stay tuned…

Two tips on making the perfect Daquiri. When adding sugar it is always best to blend the ingredients first before adding ice. This allows the sugar to dissolve more easily.

The second tip is that after adding ice and blending for a bit, take the lid off and use a spoon to help the mixing. This will make sure it is a nice smooth drink instead of having some bits of ice. Just watch out for the blades with the spoon.

The recipe came from a trip to Jamaica. The only difference is that I think they used goat's milk instead of that from a cow. You can only drink so much Red Stripe.
