What's a non alcoholic mango daiquiri?
It's made from pureed mangoes, lime juice, simple syrup, and rum extract. It's a fun and fruity drink typically served in hurricane glasses and garnished with a maraschino cherry or fresh strawberry.
How much sugar is in this drink?
There is 73.6 grams of sugar per 15 fl oz. My frozen mangoes weren't very sweet, so I had to add a lot of simple syrup. If yours are sweeter, you won't need to add that much simple syrup.
How to Make
Pour 2 cups (400g) of granulated sugar and 2 cups (472 ml) of water in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, then chill until cold.
You'll need 5 cups of frozen mango chunks, 1 cup of lime juice, 1 ⅔ cups simple syrup, and ½ teaspoon of rum extract.
Puree the frozen mango chunks, adding a little water if necessary. Blend in the remaining ingredients until smooth.
If the drink isn't thick enough for you, blend in 1-2 cups of crushed ice.
Pour into three 15-ounce hurricane glasses and garnish with a maraschino cherry, mint sprig, and a paper umbrella. Enjoy!
- Use freshly squeezed lime juice. The bottled juice doesn't taste as good as freshly squeezed. It's definitely worth the extra time to do it yourself.
- You may need to add a little water while pureeing the mangoes. This is especially true if you're using a less powerful blender.
- Adjust the amount of lime juice and simple syrup to taste. Everyone's frozen fruit will taste different (I used Publix brand), so you'll need to adjust the flavors.
- Blend in crushed ice for a thicker texture. Start with 1 cup, then add another.
- Make it ahead of time. Pour the drink into a freezer-safe pitcher and freeze until needed. Defrost before serving and break up any clumps with a fork.
