More About This Recipe

  • The holidays are over.Wasn’t it grand? The cookies, the cakes, the candies, the pies, the cheese plates, the potato puffs, the champagne for toasting, the shopping fueled fast food binges – oh yes, I can (and did) go on. And yes - it was all that and a bag of (literal) chips . and here I am, at the same spot as every January – craving something a bit greener, and leaner so I can get back into my skinny jeans minus the muffin top (or shall we call it a cookie top?).Even though everyone is striving for all things healthier, a little fun must be had. The solution? Surprisingly, the daiquiri. A Skinny Blueberry Daiquiri to be exact. How, you say? Well, first off, fruit. Who can argue with fruit? Then a few packets of stevia (or your lo-cal sweetener of choice) in place of the simple syrup. And. It. Still. Tastes. Delicious.I used blueberries to make this skinny daiquiri because they’re sweet and delicious, and also full of antioxidants. But I can’t think of a fruit that wouldn’t be fabulous blended up with a bit of rum! (And make no mistake – either fresh or frozen fruit is fine. I actually prefer frozen as then less ice is needed). You’ll also need one fresh lime, 3 packets of your favorite sweetener and white rum.And if it’s wrong that I made my Skinny Blueberry Daiquiri in the protein shake mixer I got for Christmas, then I don’t want to be right!

Impressed that we got this syrupy confection under 200 calories? It's all about skipping the storebought sweet-and-sour mix and making your own.

Variations and Tips

  • To make this Gluten-Free swap out the flour for a gluten-free flour mix and use gluten-free oats.
  • You can use frozen fruit in place of fresh, although it may not be as sweet.
  • Make it even lighter by using less crisp topping on top.


Strawberry daiquiri
This cocktail should only be attempted with fruit that’s really ripe and sweet – if the berries are the big, bland variety from the chiller cabinet, the end result will just taste of mush. Allow one large handful of hulled strawberries for each cocktail. Place them in the empty shaker and give them a gentle crush with a muddler or pestle, then add the other ingredients and shake as normal and strain into your cocktail glass. Out of season, you could also make a version of this drink using Funkin strawberry purée which will be almost as good.
Hemingway’s ‘Papa Doble’ daiquiri
The writer Ernest Hemingway drank at El Floridita in Havana so often they ended up creating a daiquiri recipe especially for him called the Papa Doble, made with a quadruple measure of white rum, lime, grapefruit juice and maraschino liqueur. I don’t think many of us could handle a drink this size – as delicious as it is – so I’ve scaled it back a bit: 50ml white rum, 15ml pink grapefruit juice, 15ml lime juice, 15ml Luxardo maraschino liqueur, 5ml sugar syrup, shaken and strained into a cocktail glass or blended with ice, depending on what you prefer.
La Terraza’s blue daiquiri
Another place Hemingway liked to drink when he went fishing was a little waterside bar about 10 miles outside Havana called La Terraza. La Terraza’s signature daiquiri is made with blue curaçao, so it’s the colour of a lagoon. You can make one too, simply by substituting 15ml Bols Blue curaçao in a normal daiquiri in place of the sugar syrup. A delicious guilty pleasure on a summer’s day, especially with a cocktail umbrella.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE A 2:1 SUGAR SYRUP

Dissolve 300g sugar in 150ml water over a low heat. Leave to cool, then bottle.


Blueberry juice and liqueur lengthens and sweetens an otherwise classic Daiquiri.
