If you're a health conscious you may want to replace some or all of the sugar in your daiquiris with real fruit. You can try strawberries, mangoes, pineapples, blueberries or peaches, fresh or frozen, with ice, lime juice, rum and sweetener to taste. Don’t use raspberries and blackberries because their flavour not match with daiquiris  If your fruit is fresh and sweet, you may not need to use any sugar or syrup at all.

You can try some variations like Hemingway daiquiri make it using two and a half jiggers of white rum, juice of two limes and half a grapefruit, six drops of maraschino liqueur, without sugar.
