I made this drink after working in the yard all day and it was perfect for relaxing on the patio. My kids were jealous, so I made them a non-alcoholic one. It was almost as yummy as mine, ha!

Final Thoughts on the Banana Daiquiri

As I said before, this drink is refreshing and easy to make. I just wish my blender was bigger so I could double the recipe. My husband and I both really liked it so we will be making it again. Next time I will probably use riper bananas so the banana flavor is a bit stronger. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
