It may seem crazy to be promoting drinking margaritas on a health food blog, but I believe that mental health is just as important and sometimes I just need a dang margarita for my sanity.
The problem is, store bought margarita mixes are loaded with sugar (or artificial sugar if you are buying the sugar free ones), artificial colors (that are known carcinogens!) and other nasty, chemical preservatives. This is why I just opt to make my own. These are SO easy to make and are beyond this world delicious. They took me all of about 2 minutes to whip up and serve.
I haven't even told you the best part yet! They don't contain ANY added sugar! Only the sugar naturally occuring in fruit. AND! The electrolytes in the coconut water will help prevent a hangover the next day. I'm always looking out for you guys. Unless of course if you drink 5768 of these, in which case I can't help you there. No one can...
Courtney's Pineapple Margaritas
- 1/2 liter Coconut Water (I prefer Harmless Harvest Raw Coconut Water)
- 1/2 bag Organic Frozen Pineapple (you can use regular but I like it frozen to make the drinks extra cold)
- 3-4 Limes
- Tequila (duh)
Throw all the ingredients in the blender with ice and blend until smooth. I have a Vitamix and just peel my limes and throw the whole lime in there. You can do this if you have a Vitamix or a high powered blender, otherwise I would recommend juicing the limes first. Feel free to mess around with the measurements as they are not exact. I always just eyeball my measurements and then add more if I need to.
