Back when I was in college, I used to drink frozen margaritas like it was my job. The metabolism of a Division I college athlete had its perks and endless margaritas was one of them. Fast forward to 4 years later and now I gain weight just thinking about a margarita. But that doesn’t mean I don’t still crave them, especially in the summer.
Since I don’t believe in depriving myself of anything, I decide to try and make a “healthy” version of a frozen margarita. Something you will quickly learn about me is that I love find ways to tweak some of my favorite cheat foods to be slightly healthier. Honestly, they probably aren’t that much healthier but it makes me feel better knowing exactly what is going into my margaritas. I mean its made out of fruit, how bad could it be?
After trying out a few different fruit combinations I finally found the perfect margarita. I knew I wanted to keep the ingredients simple and natural. Even though most recipes call for added sugar and two types of alcohol, I decide to only use fresh fruit and silver tequila.
This recipe is smooth and fruity. I love how fresh it tastes. Its perfect for a hot summer day or paired with tacos!
