Avocado Margaritas!

Avocado Margarita Final Product

Frozen Avocado Margarita = Heaven

Yes you read it correctly. AVOCADO Margaritas! I know this is a Mom’s healthy food blog but let me be the first to tell you that not EVERYTHING I write will all be about tofu and box jumping. Remember I am far from perfect and there are days I want to ring our boys necks (I know I am not the only one out there, right?!?!?!).  On this blog, I take the opportunity to talk about how I need to stay sane and be a good Mama despite life’s tribulations. Most of the time, I will focus on spiritual, mental, and physical coping mechanisms but sometimes there is nothing like a cold beer, glass of wine or in this case AVOCADO Margarita that can help you deal with the stresses of the day. Hey, avocado is healthy right!?!?!? Hello, omega-3 baby.

Anyway, this is my first alcohol recipe on the blog (more to follow like my healthy spin to traditional Spanish Sangrias) but I could not resist in sharing this yummy recipe with you. Ben and I first heard about the idea of a Frozen Avocado Margarita’s from a local Mexican Restaurant in Austin called Curra’s Grill. Last weekend after a family run downtown around Town Lake, we decided to try out these infamous avocado margaritas. And they were AMAZING! We did have the kids with us so Ben and I refrained on only 1 each but ever since then I have been dreaming about how to recreate these yummy drinks at home.

This weekend I made it and they turned out DELISH!

Recipe type: Alcohol
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • ¾ cups of store bought Margarita Mix
  • 3 shots of tequila
  • 1½ avocado (cut up fresh avocado without skin, de-pit and place in a freezer bag and freeze for a few hours before making margarita)
  • handful of ice
  • Optional: Limes and Salt
Instructions
  1. Cut avocado in half, remove pit, and take out meat of avocado out of the shell. I put the avocado in a freezer safe ziplock bags and froze it for a few hours before blending.
  2. Once avocados were frozen, place ice, frozen avocado, tequila and margarita mixer in the blender (add more alcohol or mixer to your liking). Originally, I did not put ice cubes thinking the frozen avocado was enough but after blending I realized you need a little ice to get that creamy frozen texture. You might have to add more ice than I did, particularly if your liquor melts the ice.
  3. Blend and be ready to be wowed!
  4. Optional: Wet rim of glass with a piece of lime, then dip into salt to give a salt rim.
