Frozen Banana Rum Cocktails

Frozen Banana Rum Cocktails

WOOHOO!  It’s summertime.  Schools out, the pools are open, and play dates are in full swing!  This also means it’s time for big tall glasses of frozen drinks…smoothies, frappuccinos, and frozen cocktails.  Oh yes, I said frozen cocktails.  And this Frozen Banana Rum Cocktail is perfect for any afternoon sitting by the pool.  It’s cool and refreshing with a hint of rum but huge banana flavor.

YoNanas Banana "Ice Cream" Maker

Dole sent me some goodies recently including this fun new YoNanas machine.  At first, I wasn’t thrilled with having another gadget to use, but after using it once I don’t think I will be able to live without it.  It takes frozen bananas and turns them into banana ice cream or use with different ingredients to change it up a bit.

I added banana ice cream to the bottom of ice cream cones (aka scoop #1) and then topped with ice cream (scoop #2).  The kids had a double scoop cone which is unheard of around here and it wasn’t terribly unhealthy.  The kids all loved it!

Frozen Banana Rum Cocktails

Basically, I took the frozen banana ice cream and mixed with my cocktail ingredients for an instant frozen cocktail. My friends and I sat out by the pool sipping these while the kids played.
