Hit or Miss – Banana Daiquiri Mocktail

by Alli

It’s Hit or Miss Wednesday! This week I’m reviewing a Banana Daiquiri Mocktail. Don’t miss my complete recipe list of refreshing mocktails. 

A few weeks ago I was eating lunch and watching a Sandra Lee rerun on Food Network.  At the end of the show, as usual, she made a cocktail, only this time it was a Banana Daiquiri Mocktail (no alcohol) and it looked so good.  I knew I had to try it and post about it on a hit or miss Wednesday.

First of all, it’s so simple and I had all the ingredients on hand.  Also, it called for 1/4 cup sugar for each drink.  I substituted the sugar with Splenda and rimmed the glasses with coconut since there is coconut milk in the drink.

It’s so easy to rim your glass with coconut, salt, colored sugar, etc.  Just dip the rim in lime juice or water and then dip it into whatever you want to rim it with.

Was the Banana Daiquiri Mocktail a hit or a miss?  It was a big, fat hit!  I will definitely make these again!  You can get the recipe here!

The coconut milk mixed with the banana, lime juice, and ice creates a unique flavor and is smooth and really refreshing.  You must try it!

If you’re planning a party, make sure to have at least one drink that doesn’t contain alcohol. There are many people, like me, who don’t drink. And if you’re inviting pregnant friends, having a special drink with no alcohol will be much appreciated. 

All of these drinks are delicious and 

Looking for other mocktails?  Try my No-Tequila, Just the Sunrise Mocktail or my Frozen Margarita Mocktail. They are both delicious and I always whip a few of these drinks up when the family is together at the beach. 

What’s your favorite mocktail? Trust me, you won’t miss the alcohol at all!

Seriously, I want to go get some bananas and try this. I love anything that looks like a creamy smoothie! To besides, who can go wrong with coconut milk-from an “island” gal perspective!!!

I love that you are from an island and I want to live on an island. The hubby and I have a trip planned for St. Lucia in July. We try to visit a different island each year. I guess if I can’t live on one, visiting is the next best thing! πŸ™‚
