This simple frozen strawberry daiquiri is a beautiful cocktail with a few little surprises, thanks to the lovely Prairie Rose of the award winning cocktail blog Bit By A Fox.
Skip all the store bought processed sugar heavy mixers and stick with fresh basics for this summer loving daiquiri!
We love the fresh strawberries, lime juice and mint in this classic frozen strawberry daiquiri recipe, with a fun blueberry addition.
You can also make this red, white and blue with a dollop of whipped cream on top!
A good power blender will give you that restaurant quality slushy or frozen texture if you so desire.

STRAWBERRY HEALTH BENEFITS
It has been said by many to include berries in your daily meal plan, and tasty juicy strawberries are a favorite, especially in the USA.
Studies have shown a cup of strawberries to actually help maintain blood sugar levels, which is a plus for those with type 2 diabetes.
Strawberries also have anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to an amazing combination of antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Of course having these properties can also help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, including colon, breast, cervical, and esophageal cancer.
