Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Calorie Comparison
This low calorie Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri weighs in at approximately 121 Calories. Traditional Strawberry Daiquiri drinks start at about 230 to 250 calories per drink depending on where you order and who is making the drink. That’s a caloric savings of 109 to 129 calories per cocktail. That is a lot! With calorie savings like that you could splurge and have the Peach Bikini Cocktail for 90 calories, or choose the Ocean Breeze for 88 calories or have a Margarita on the Rocks for 88 calories at Happy Hour later in the evening and still stay under the calorie amount of one regular Strawberry Daiquiri.
Keep the cocktails. Skip the calories.
Cocktail Tips and Tricks
Use frozen unsweetened fruit in place of ice when possible in blended drinks. Fruit adds more depth of flavor to the drink recipe. As the frozen cocktail begins to melt while you drink there is less watery mess and more flavor preservation in the drink.
