If you need a refreshing cocktail, this delicious low sugar drink is made in just minutes in a blender. Savor the flavor of this cocktail, or you can even enjoy it as a mocktail if you skip the rum. There's only 5 simple ingredients!
No matter your diet, we're sure we can all agree that a ton of added sugar is just not great. A lot of natural sweetness comes from delicious pineapple and watermelon,
We include lots of process pictures in the body of the text, as well as ideas for substitutions and more. Feel free to skip to the recipe card if you'd like to get right into it. This recipe is also available as a Google Web Story here!
- Watermelon - Fresh or frozen. You don't have to cut it perfectly, since it will get blended anyway! Just make sure to save a wedge or two for a pretty garnish later. 🙂
- Pineapple - We had frozen on hand, but you can use fresh if you prefer.
- Lime - Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a little bit of acidity to this drink!
- White rum - The key to a daiquiri! Feel free to leave it out if you prefer a mocktail.
- Sugar free simple syrup - So easy to make! (We will include instructions further on in the body of the text) and it greatly decreases the carb and sugar count in this drink.
- Ice (optional) - To thicken the drink in the blender if you prefer!
How to Make A Low Carb Watermelon Pineapple Daiquiri:
Add sugar free simple syrup, watermelon and pineapple to a blender.
Add lime juice and rum to the blender.
Now, add some ice, and then blend until smooth.
Garnish and enjoy!
Tips For The Best Pineapple Watermelon Daiquiri:
- Strain the mixture after blending it if you don't care for the frothy fruit foam on top. It's optional though!
- You can refreeze these if you'd like to enjoy them later. Just store in an airtight container before putting in the freezer.
A blender is definitely the preferred method for this drink, but you could use a food processor or immersion blender instead.
Alternatively, you could muddle the fruit in the bottom of a glass, then add the remaining ingredients, then mix. With this method it may be best to serve over ice.
How To Make Sugar Free Keto Simple Syrup:
Making sugar free simple syrup is incredibly easy to do, and you can make man variations of it quite easily. For best results, use allulose sweetener, which is shelf stable, and won’t crystallize upon refrigeration if you want to keep it in the fridge.
- Allulose is slightly less sweet than sugar, so the ratio isn’t 1:1. Use about 1 and ⅓ cups allulose for every one cup of water.
- Bring the water to a boil, and stir in the allulose. Remove from the heat and continuing stirring to dissolve. Allow to cool before using. That’s it! Store in an airtight container indefinitely if kept in a cool, dry place.
- If you choose a different sweetener to make your simple syrup with, but please note that many (non-sugar) sweeteners will crystallize after being refrigerated.
A Small Warning About Allulose:
Allulose can cause GI distress in some people (including myself) if consumed in large quantities. We’re not authorized to give advice about what that magic number is in terms of consumption. Different people have different tolerance levels to allulose. You can read more about possible side effects here.
In my personal experience, I’m fine if I enjoy between 1-2 ounces of this simple syrup at any given time. Any more than that and my stomach isn’t happy for a couple of hours.
