Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktails

Hello summer!

AKA Hello 90+ degree temperatures.

And being hot all the time.

And trying to find ways to stay cool.

While being 7 months pregnant.


Well pre-pregnancy I would have settled for a glass of cold sangria, Margarita, or a cold cold glass of wine.

Enter the Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktail.

And the awesome thing about this Mocktail?

Without all the rum and sugar in it, its basically just a smoothie. With attitude.

That will make you daydream that you may actually be drinking a cocktail.

The perfect sweet and tart drink to enjoy this July 4th. (With or without rum!)

Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktail

5-6 sweet strawberries
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 cup sparkling water
4-5 pieces of pineapple
2 Tbsp pineapple juice
1 peach, diced

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until pink and daiquiri-like in consistency. Add more liquid as necessary to blend.
