Cocktail time – Part 1: Banana Daiquiri
I developed this banana daiquiri cocktail from a recipe by Gino DaCampo for a slimming breakfast banana smoothie. Those of you who know me probably aren’t surprised that my first thought was how I could make it work with a spot of booze added… Well, I think I’ve cracked it. This cheeky little number is a great drink to serve your friends when they come round for a weekend BBQ or a Friday night drinky-poo…or in my case tonight, to serve myself while I do a spot of blogging…
You will need:
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup
200 ml milk (I use semi-skimmed)
2 shots spiced rum (or normal dark rum will do)
2 scoops soft scoop vanilla ice cream
1 square of whatever chocolate you have to hand
- Break up the banana and put into a blender along with the cinnamon, maple syrup, milk and rum.
- Blitz for about a minute
- Half fill a couple of glasses with ice and pour over the daiquiri
- Add a scoop of ice cream to each glass and sprinkle over some grated chocolate.
- Ta da!
