The basic ingredients for a standard strawberry daiquiri are ice, rum, Triple Sec, fresh strawberries, lime. Although the strawberries and lime contain a few carbohydrates, the Triple Sec is the main issue. This orange liquor is loaded with sugar! So here is my low carb version. Cheers!
To a blender, add strawberries, light rum, lime juice and orange extract. To make it a longer drink, add 5-6 ice cubes or some chilled water. Blend until smooth. Test for sweetness – depending on the strawberries and your personal taste, you might find that it is sweet enough for you.
I was making this out of season (the strawberries had an amazing smell but weren’t super sweet), so I added a few drops of liquid stevia that I’ve just started using. Reviews are mixed on it but it is zero carb and perfect for mixing into liquids. Then I blended again.
The orange extract adds quite a lot to the overall flavor so it’s definitely worth including to stop it being like an alcoholic strawberry sauce. Which actually doesn’t sound too bad, now I think about it!
