It's still summer, people! And what better way to celebrate than with a strawberrylicious frozen drink that's totally guilt-free?! This one's ripped right from the pages of our best-selling cookbook, and it's so good you'll want to MARRY it! Really... you will. Try it and see...

3 frozen strawberries
1 tbsp. lime juice
5 - 8 ice cubes OR 1 cup crushed ice

Dissolve drink mix into 1/2 cup cold water. Stir thoroughly. In a blender, combine drink mixture with all other ingredients. Blend to desired consistency. Pour, add a straw, and slurp that baby up! MAKES 1 SERVING

This Daq Is WHACK!

What poolside fantasy would be complete without a giant frosty glass full of the delicious drink known as the strawberry daiquiri? Ahhhh... Well, snap back to reality, people! Cuz' that mug might as well contain a couple of donuts, considering all the calories it's packing! And those stats can get even worse since many restaurants and bars serve these up in fishbowl-sized glasses (or scarier... refillable pitchers!). But we're not quite ready to pull the plug on this dynamite drink (no way!). Invite some pals over, put the keys aside, and indulge in a batch of our Slammin' Slimmed-Down Strawberry Daiquiris! Cute pool boy and hot bartender not included (sorry!)...
