Frozen Strawberry Pineapple Margaritas
Well today is just so exciting, isn’t it? It’s Cinco de Mayo! And you know what?! IT FEELS LIKE SUMMER AND I LOOOOOOVE IT!! Last night, I played with Jackson in the front yard until the sun went down, just throwing the ball back and forth and wearing him out. All in a tank top. And then we actually had to turn the air conditioning on for the first time this year. I love how early the sun rises and how late it sets. It’s just the absolute best time of year.
This summer is turning out to be somewhat busy! I have plans to go to Austin for Paleo(fx), Vegas for a Bachelor/Bachelorette party, Washington to see my friend and her new squishy baby, San Antonio for a book release party and Portland…just to eat. And I think I’ll have a few more trips splashed in there as time goes on! I mentioned earlier this year that I wanted this year to be the year of travel and it’s definitely turning out to be that way! I’m still trying to talk the husband into going to the Keys, but since I booked a trip to Costa Rica next year, he thinks I need to just relax. I think I need to just relax…in the Keys. I’ll keep pushing, he’ll come around.
Are you doing anything for the Derby this year? I don’t know how it is in other states, but the Derby is all huge here. There’s a GIANT party that’s thrown with unlimited food and drink (I’ve never gone…because I hate people, especially in large drunken groups) and then people have all sorts of small parties everywhere. Lots of mint juleps are sipped on, which I think is disgusting because the bourbon ruins everything else that’s going on in that drink. As I get older, less of my friends are spending money on outfits and dressing up for the Derby and are just staying home instead. Which I’m totally down for. I have a backyard to landscape, I don’t care about purchasing a little weird hat that I can’t pronounce. Fascinator or some sh*t like that. I don’t even know how I got on this subject, let’s talk about this cocktail.
Let me preface by saying, if your goal is to lose weight, stop drinking. If your goal is to have a healthier option for a cocktail on your fun day, then here ya go! I’m a big believer in limiting alcohol, but I’m also a big believer in still enjoying your life. That’s why I make these cocktails for you guys, so you still have options! And if you’re looking for more Cinco de Mayo inspiration, just check out the links I posted below! More cocktails, entrees and a few dips! Go enjoy your Cinco de Mayo without throwing your healthy lifestyle out the door!
Frozen Strawberry Pineapple Margaritas
- Yield: 2-4 1x
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 cup silver agave tequila, divided
- 1/2 cup lime juice, divided
- 4 ounces Grand Marnier, divided (optional – it’s great without it)
- 2 heaping tablespoons agave nectar, divided
Just FYI- you don’t have to blend these ingredients separately. You can blend them all together if you don’t care about the swirl look. It’s totally up to you! And if you don’t want your margaritas very strong, feel free to use less tequila and add in a bit of orange juice to make up for the liquid.
- Place frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup tequila, 1/4 cup lime juice, 2 ounces Grand Marnier, and 1 tablespoon agave nectar in a blend and blend until completely smooth. Pour mixture into 2 large margarita glasses or 4 small ones.
- Rinse blender out then place frozen pineapple and all the rest of the tequila, lime juice, grand manner and agave nectar in the blender and blend until smooth. Top each margarita glass with the pineapple mixture and use a straw to swirl the mixture.

I’ve never seen a swirled margarita before, I love this!
Thank you for posting those Paleo friendly drink recipes, right now I am doing Emily Schromm’s Superhero Challenge that says No Alcohol for 21 days so I will have to wait for this one!
good work! removing alcohol is key to seeing body changes. hope you enjoy this after!
Totally making these as I’ve been looking for “healthier” margarita options! Gotta love warm weather….it means lots of drinks enjoyed outside!
I’m visiting Denver for the weekend from Austin and saw you at Little Man! Ice cream made for a great Cinco de Mayo dinner…it was a perfect night for it and it’s beautiful here!
you should have said hi! we called in earlier that day and they said they have rocky road vegan ice cream so we were SO BUMMED when they didn’t have any! the banana ice cream just didn’t satisfy like rocky road would have!
These look amazing! Definitely making tomorrow for a belated cinco de mayo dinner. Do you think it would be sweet enough without the agave or would it not taste as good? Just trying to avoid buying another ingredient mostly because I’m cheap ????
for sure! you could always add honey instead too if you have that on hand!
I really don’t like fruity margaritas – just the typical citrus type ones. Do you have any ideas for a non-mango, non-strawberry treat? Thanks!
lime juice, tequila, soda water!
Looks amazing but interested in substituting something else for agave nectar…any suggestions?
JULI! As if I needed another reason to love you. My boyfriend and I were in Portland and hit up Andina – I had saved your post from last year- and OMG that cocktail. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. Thank you thank you thank you, for bringing that into my life! I’ll forever trust your recommendations.
RIGHT?!!? I’m literally planning a trip to Portland right now just to have that cocktail! So glad you got to go there! Did you go to Departure?! That place is heaven
Are you planning to do the landscaping yourself? We just had a patio and pergola installed (plus a bunch of hardscaping) and it looks SO GOOD. My boyfriend was standing out in the yard after it was all done and said “This… is… nicer than I deserve.” Haha. It really does feel way too nice for our house, our neighborhood, our lives in general. Very grown up and Cherry Creek-y (we’re in Clayton). Jerome at Guaranteed Excellent is the man to talk to! I highly recommend.
no, definitely not planning to do it ourselves. and everyone we’ve called has either not called us back or can’t do a consultation until late May. i’ll give this guy a call, thanks for the recommendation!
Frozen Strawberry Pineapple Margaritas ! I love this drink Thanks for sharing 🙂

OH, and today is National Margarita Day! I will definitely be making them. 🙂
so glad you like it kim!
