From breakfast to cocktail hour in one easy step…
Banana Daquiri

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…

Banana Daiquiri

You will need:

banana daiquiri

1 banana

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!
