How to Make a Frozen Banana Daiquiri

The average American consumes 27 pounds of bananas every year. If you're not getting your fair share, try this classic drink—you'll catch up in no time.


  • Step 1: Chill glass Chill the cocktail glass by filling it with ice and water, and set it aside.
  • Step 2: Crush ice Crush the ice in the blender.
  • TIP: If you’re making a big batch of daiquiris, add the other ingredients to the blender first, then add in ice until the pitcher is full.
  • Step 3: Peel banana & break up Peel the banana and break it into small chunks.
  • Step 4: Put banana in blender Place the small chunks of banana into the blender.
  • Step 5: Add rum, liqueur, lime juice, & syrup Pour in the light rum, banana liqueur, lime juice, and simple syrup.
  • TIP: Simple syrup is just sugar boiled in water--but honey will work equally well.
  • Step 6: Blend Blend the ingredients for about 15 seconds, or until smooth and creamy.
  • Step 7: Empty glass Empty the now-chilled cocktail glass.
  • Step 8: Pour & serve Pour contents into the glass and serve.
