Strawberry daiquiris might seem like an innocent poolside cocktail, but don’t be fooled—most bottled mixes are packed with junky ingredients and tons of sugar (about 88 grams for 1 cup…yikes!). Just in time for warmer weather, I took this cocktail to the next level and transformed it into a slimming ice pop for only 50 calories a ‘pop’ plus 2 grams of fiber and a blast of vitamin C. It’s a totally delicious, guilt-free and refreshing treat for a sunny day.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 to 8 pops
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups sliced frozen strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 oz rum
  • ¼ cup water

 

Preparation:

In small bowl mix the sugar and fresh sliced strawberries (save the frozen strawberries for later step). Cover and refrigerate for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until strawberries begin to sweeten and release their natural juices.

Add the fresh strawberry and sugar mixture to blender with remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into ice pop molds and freeze for about 6 hours or until frozen solid.
