Add strawberries to fresh fruit shakes and to the drinks you make during the summer. Crush these fruits and mix them with yogurt or milk to get delicious milk drinks. And if you want to get a special drink to drink with your loved one, prepare a & strawberry quotsarut & quot.

When preparing fruit salad, do not avoid strawberries. The slices of red fruit will give the salad not only an extra flavor, but also a taste.

Cut a few slices of strawberry over the lettuce before serving. You will notice that together with the lemon juice, they give an extraordinary taste and smell to the summer salad.


Step 1

Diet pancakes

First we put the oatmeal in a blender and mix until they have the consistency of a large peseta. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix at medium speed until we have a well-bound composition. Heat the pan or special pancake plate, grease it with a little oil and pour a composition polish for each pancake.

When it is nicely browned on one side and small bubbles begin to appear on the top, it is time to turn the pancake to brown on both sides. Bake pancakes over medium heat to make sure they are baked on the inside, not just browned on the outside.

Pancakes can be served with fresh fruit or fruit puree, powdered with vanilla sugar or sprinkled with maple syrup.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Combine well on high speed until smooth.
  3. Pour into a cooled roll or a bottle of daisy.

If the drink is too thin, add a little ice and stir again. Too thick? Add a drop of liquid and mix.

Daiquiri strawberries Shaken

When it comes to shaken strawberry daiquiri, you can serve it & quotsus & quot or over fresh ice. In any case, the trick is to keep it nice and cool, starting with a chilled cocktail or a bottle of margarita.

Since we work with fresh strawberries, you will find the best to finish the stem of this cocktail. To do this, simply place a fine mesh filter on your glass as you flinch. This should keep all the pieces of strawberries and most of the small seeds in your drink.

It is also possible to make this daiquiri with a strawberry liqueur. Start with 1 ounce of liqueur and adjust to suit your taste.

To make this drink, mix 5 or 6 sliced ​​strawberries in a glass mixer or cocktail until it is crushed and most of the juice has been released. Pour 2 ounces of rum, 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice, 1/4 ounce of plain syrup and fill the shaker with ice. Shake well. Cut well into a chilled cocktail or a bottle of margarita and garnish with a strawberry.

Add personal rotation

Everyone has their own personal take on daiquiri strawberries and both of these recipes are very basic and meant to be played with. Add personal rotation by choosing a specific rum, adding more fruit or throwing in another ingredient & quotsecret & quot.

For example, some people prefer a spicy rum because it gives the drink more background flavor. You might add herbs like rosemary or basil, both paired perfectly with berries. They can be incorporated into the mixture, blender or you can use a simple flavored syrup.

Choosing strawberries

Fresh strawberries are preferred for these drinks. They are available almost all year round and at their peak from April to June. There is also something special about strawberries in your garden or at the local farmers market.

If you love strawberry daiquiri, take advantage of these opportunities when they come and enjoy the best drinks of the year.

Make sure you wash well and iron fresh fruits before mixing them in any drink.

Frozen strawberries are good, especially in frozen daiquiri. In fact, some consumers prefer to use them because they make the process just a little easier.

Orange liqueur

The recipe for frozen daiquiri strawberries uses an orange liqueur. While triple dry is the most common choice, you may want to play with some of the other options available. A quick update would be Cointreau, and Grand Marnier adds a nice flair.

How to make a strawberry fan garnish

If you have fresh fruit on hand, save it and have fun with the garnish. They can be cut in many different ways or you can always cut a cut into berries and slide it on the edge of the glass.

For a quick and beautiful garnish, cut a strawberry fan. It's incredibly easy to make and looks great on any glass. The thin slices are perfectly on top of the frozen drink or the one served on the rocks.

  1. Rinse the strawberry and remove the green stem and lid.
  2. Cut 4 to 5 thin slices into lengths while holding the fruit together.
  3. When you are ready to squeeze the drink, simply spread the slices on top, in a fan shape.

How strong is the strawberry Daiquiri?

Frozen strawberry daiquiri will have a considerably lower alcohol content, as an ice cup is used to make it. If a rum with 80 samples and Cointreau is used, the frozen daiquiri would be about 9% ABV (18 proof).

Daiquiri shaken is slightly stronger at about 20% ABV (40 proof).

While one drink is a little weaker than the other, keep in mind that both can sneak up on you. This is especially true if you enjoy a few daiquiris on a hot sunny day. Make sure you drink plenty of water during the party so that you don't get rich too quickly.

And with this recipe I start a new category in this blog, namely fasting recipes. Fasting days often give me topics for culinary thinking, because it is not easy for me to invent something new without products with meat, milk, eggs. But even more thrilling is the challenge.

So today the Dublin zucchini.

Ingredients: 3 pumpkins about 20 cm long, 2 tomatoes, a handful of spinach (I used frozen spinach), a cup of long grain rice, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, salt, green pepper, sage, mustard Dijon (the one with whole grains, also appears under the name of French mustard)

The zucchini is cut lengthwise into thin slices, which are hardened in oil (of any kind). Place a layer of zucchini in a heat-resistant dish, salt and sprinkle with finely chopped garlic:

Meanwhile, boil the rice in salted water, scald and, if necessary, chop the spinach (the frozen one is ready to be chopped), drain and mix. Add extra virgin olive oil - salt, green pepper, a little sage and a teaspoon of Dijon mustard. In a short time this mixture acquires a consistency that can be worked with very easily, you will see a little later what funny things can be invented. The rice mixture is spread over the first layer of zucchini. But keep about 4 globes for the surprise later.

Bake until the tomatoes are lightly cooked.

Despite its fragile appearance, the mixture is well coagulated and easy to serve.
