Mango Banana Daiquiris

Cheers to my girl, Ina! McHubby and I enjoyed these delicious blended drinks as our “dessert.” I had to use frozen mangos, since I’m allergic to fresh mangos, and all I could find was a mixed bag of mangos, strawberries, and pineapple. Since the fruit was already frozen, I didn’t have to use as much ice. Our drinks were a little pink from the strawberries, but very tropical and refreshing in the summer heat. Cheers also to Veronica of Supermarket Serenade for choosing this Barefoot Bloggers recipe!

2 cups chopped ripe mango (1 to 2 mangos, peeled and seeded)
1 ripe banana, chopped
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
¼ cup sugar syrup (see note)
1 ¼ cups dark rum, such as Mount Gay
Mango slices, for serving

Note: To make sugar syrup, heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Chill.

Place the mango, banana, lime juice, sugar syrup, and rum in a blender and process until smooth. Add 2 cups of ice and process again until smooth and thick. Serve ice-cold in highball glasses with mango slices.


  1. That is a great idea! We enjoyed them at our house!

  2. I think the addition of the strawberries would be very tasty! Cheers!

  3. Great idea with the frozen fruit, thanks for the tip.
