Are frozen, fruity, slushy drinks a favourite part of your summer? We sure like them! So much so that we frequent convenience stores much more in the summer than any other part of the year. You too? Oh good, I'm glad we're not alone. ;) I like fruity, but my family is more into the soda flavoured slushees. What's your favourite?
Speaking of slushy drinks, this is a way to take the yummy flavours of a non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri & make it into a delicious, cool dessert.
Strawberry Daiquiri Pie
Makes 8 servings
1 1/4 cups Oreo baking crumbs
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 can sweetened condensed milk (the low-fat version works too)
1/2 cup frozen strawberry daiquiri concentrate, thawed (1/2 a can) *See note below
1 cup frozen strawberries in light syrup, thawed
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (the light version works too)
Fresh strawberries for garnish
Spray an 8 or 9 inch springform pan with non-stick spray.
Crust: Combine crumbs, sugar, & melted butter in a small bowl. Press crumbs evenly over bottom of the springform pan. Place in the freezer while you mix up the filling.
Filling: Beat sweetened condensed milk & daiquiri mix on low speed of an electric mixer. Add strawberries & beat again until well blended. Fold in whipped topping. Pour into prepared crust. Cover with plastic wrap & freeze overnight.
To serve, run a knife around the edge of pan & remove sides. Garnish individual pieces with fresh strawberries.
*Note: If you're not sure what frozen strawberry daiquiri concentrate is, this is the kind I use. It can be found in the freezer section of most grocery stores near the frozen juice.
Mmm, are you craving a slushee now??? ;)
Enjoy your day!
