Virgin Peachy Keen Daiquiris Trial: Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free
First off, congratulations to J, debra, and Christy who won copies of Piper Reed books. Please contact me with your mailing address so we can send your prizes to you.
Summer has finally hit Seattle, and I have had no desire to cook this week in my non-air-conditioned home. So, I turned to my cookbook in desperation for something cool, and decided to give Peachy Keen Daiquiris from Taste of Home a try.
These drinks were already Joseph-safe. I just left out the optional rum, since none of us drink alcohol.
Just like a smoothie, all you do is put all the ingredients in a blender,
blend and serve.

What I Thought
My husband and I both thought that these daiquiris were too tart. We added more sugar to make it more palatable. I’m not sure if its because of the lack of rum, or the limeade I got was more concentrated than I expected (it calls for 3 parts concentrate to 13 parts water). Both kids were excited for smoothies, my daughter even saying “Mommy, I love smoothie!” but she only drank half of hers. Joseph took a taste, then started spooning his daiquiri onto the placemat. Ah well. Better luck next time.
