mango coconut daiquiri.

cocktail friday is back, ya’ll!

we can all agree that it’s crazy ridiculous hot out, right? what could be better on a 100 degree day than a frosty, refreshing frozen drink?

i’ve been obsessed with coconut for as long as i can remember, but my fondness for mangoes is a much more recent development. i tried a fresh mango for the first time about 6 years ago, and i’ve been hooked on them ever since!

a ripe mango is a truly beautiful thing. they’re so sweet and juicy, and incredibly versatile, too! you can make salsa, chutneys, smoothies, ice cream…i’ve even made a mango vinaigrette before that was absolutely to die for! mangoes are great in sweet or savory applications, and they add such beautiful color to whatever you’re serving them with.

oh, mangoes. you’re my fave.

another thing i totally love: frozen fruit! while you can easily purchase frozen fruit at the grocery store, it’s just as simple and even more delicious to freeze fresh fruit yourself! you can slice up a mango into chunks, place it on a baking sheet, pop it in the freezer, and when the chunks are frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe zip-top bag.

i do the same thing with berries, bananas, and tons of other fruits as well. it’s a great way to preserve summer’s bounty all year old!

plus, when you’re making smoothies or frozen cocktails, using frozen fruit in place of ice cubes is pretty much genius. that’s just how i roll.

this mango coconut daiquiri is super dreamy. it reminds me of a mango lassi, a delicious drink that contains mango pulp and yogurt. the mango flavor is strong and sweet, and the coconut milk provides a lovely creaminess to the daiquiri. there’s a hint of lime to give it a bit of a punch, and the rum is present, but not overpowering at all.

you can easily make this non-alcoholic, just leave out the rum! perfectly refreshing for kiddos or people who don’t drink!

the only thing that would make this frozen cocktail any better would be to enjoy it poolside. i just might have to fill up the kiddie pool and lounge around in the backyard this weekend. don’t tell my neighbors though…they might find it a bit odd to peer over the fence into our backyard to see me sitting in a kiddie pool, drinking mango coconut daiquiris like it’s my job.

seriously, make this mango coconut daiquiri this weekend! it’s a summertime dream!
