Daiquiri Ice is a Baskin-Robbins copycat recipe for their rum and lime flavored non-alcoholic frozen sorbet.
This tastes like Baskin-Robbins vintage recipe and is perfect for what I need today.
I even dusted off the ice cream maker.
This is a lime and rum-flavored sorbet of sorts. It is kid-friendly since it uses rum flavoring instead of actual rum.
If you want an adult version you could try adding some real rum to this recipe, but you might find it is more of a slush.
Baskin Robbins used to have Daiquiri Ice as part of their 31 flavors.
Daiquiri Ice used to be available year-round at all of their locations.
Then one day, it became hard to find. I hear it is available now, seasonally, and at select locations.
We have tried the version they serve now, and it just isn’t the same.
Carrie P, over at Garlic is Love, had the same issue in her house and she set out to create her own recipe for Daiquiri Ice.
This is one of the few recipes that I own that is used exactly as it was created. No tinkering is necessary with this one.
We think she nailed it.
I always use my ice cream maker, so I’m not sure how it would turn out without one.
Might be worth a shot to use any freezer method from any sorbet recipe that does not use an ice cream maker.
It may need to be put through a blender after initial freezing, then placed back into the freezer.
Green food coloring is optional. It only serves to turn the frozen product into the reminiscent color. We tend to eat with our eyes first so I use it.
Citric acid powder is not as scary as it sounds. In fact, it is what gives any candy or soda the citrus flavor.
Citric acid powder is sometimes located with the canning supplies.
It is available at many home brewing stores.
You might even find it labeled as “sour salt” in the spice section of some stores.
I have even located this product with picnic supplies. Your guess is as good as mine why it might be located there. It was near the Fruit Fresh.
I have never replaced the citric acid with Fruit Fresh, so I have no idea if this would work as a substitute.
Fruit Fresh also contains ascorbic acid, which is just Vitamin C so it might be fine.
If anyone gets a chance to make it with a product containing ascorbic acid, leave us a comment to let us know the outcome.
