Strawberry Mint Margarita

Strawberry Mint Margarita | Dietitian Debbie Dishes

It’s Friday! Let’s make some margaritas. We were shopping at Whole Foods this weekend and the strawberries just smelled amazing as we wandered by – I couldn’t help but buy some! I get so excited when seasonal fruits like strawberries start re-appearing in the grocery store and farmers market. In addition to tossing them in smoothies or yogurt, I blended a few strawberries in these tasty little margaritas. 

These take a matter of minutes to whip up and since they aren’t made with a syrupy margarita mix, they are light and refreshing. Plus, you get a healthy dose of vitamin C from the fresh strawberries! I found that the strawberries alone made this drink sweet enough for me, but if would prefer, you can add ~2 teaspoons of simple syrup, sugar, or honey before blending.
