Virgin Blueberry Daiquiri -
I have been using this recipe for strawberry daiquiri for a while now. And use it with any berry available in the season. Personally I like blueberry version more so here it is -
1/2 cup washed blueberries
Juice from 1/4 lemon
2-3 tbsp sugar (or per taste)
3-4 ice cubes
Blend all the ingredients together in a jar. Adjust sugar and enjoy the drink in a chilled glass.
- You can use any berries in daiquiri.
- You can substitute any small pasta or quinoa in the salad.
