Not only is it a Smoothie Saturday, it’s also National Blueberry Month! What better way to celebrate this wonderful little blue dynamo than by enjoying a Blueberry Daiquiri? Take advantage of peak season and blend blueberries with lime juice, rum, and ice for a delectable way to toast to the brilliant blueberry.
1-1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
1-1/2 ounces light rum*
1 cup crushed ice
In an electric blender place lime juice, blueberries and rum. Blend until smooth. Add ice and blend until slushy. Garnish with blueberries skewered on picks circled with a strip of lime peel, if desired.
Yield 1 cup
*Note: To make this smoothie non-alcoholic, simply substitute rum with your favorite juice.
