Summer is almost over and with the last few weekends left celebrating the warm weather, I wanted to make a refreshing tropical drink to share for my upcoming Labor Day BBQ! Say hello to my non alcoholic Banana Coconut Daiquiri made with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener!  

To start this recipe, I chopped up some really ripe bananas (froze them) and measured out some frozen pineapple pieces.  The frozen fruit acts as the ice portion of the drink so that the flavor doesn’t get diluted.  I also love using frozen bananas since the high pectin content helps them get thick and creates a custard like texture when they are blended.  Creamy bananas equals creamy Banana Coconut Daiquiri! 
Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-1Next I added the frozen fruits, one can of unsweetened canned coconut milk, one cup of unsweetened almond coconut milk, vanilla bean paste and 4 packets of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener to my blender and let it get combined.  This is a pretty thick drink so be sure to use your blender stir stick to help you move the fruit around so that it all gets incorporated. No chunks of fruit allowed!Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-3Once the Banana Coconut Daiquiri was blended, I served it up in some chilled glasses.  I added a cute straw and tiny banana slice on the rim of each glass to make it more festive.Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-6

Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-4Would you look at that!? A non alcoholic Banana Coconut Daiquiri that is not only delicious but accidentally vegan too! Now you have a sweet frozen drink that covers your dairy free friends.Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-5These SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener packets were super helpful since they are already measured and that makes things so much more convenient especially when you are planning a party.  I often find myself trying to figure out how much of each ingredient to put in for some recipes but these little packets takes the guess work out.  I always like to assume that one packet per person is perfect but you can certainly make this drink as sweet as you’d like!Banana-Coconut-Daiquiri-2If you need ideas for your upcoming Labor Day BBQ, visit SWEET SWAPS™ and SPLENDA® on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter
