With warmer weather upon us, it’s time for cool and refreshing drinks.
Actually I don’t need warm weather to enjoy margaritas, but it helps them go down extra easily.
The margaritas taste like a tropical vacation. They’re fruity and sweet but not too sweet, and they pack a punch.
There’s no margarita mix, no added refined (white) sugar, and the sweetness comes naturally from the fruit and agave.
I use minimal ice because I use frozen fruit. There’s a time for fresh fruit but in blended drinks is not one of them. Frozen fruit is cheaper, readily available, there’s no work involved in cleaning it, and it naturally cools the drink down. If you happen to have fresh of course use it, but I save my fresh for eating.
Fresh lemon and lime juice is best, but use what you have. I’ve had great luck with this and this.
I love Patron Silver and it’s my go-to tequila but use your favorite.
One is never enough which is why the recipe makes two hearty drinks. A definite must for Cinco de Mayo.

Mango Pineapple Frozen Margaritas
The margaritas taste like a tropical vacation. They’re fruity and sweet but not too sweet, and they pack a punch. There’s no margarita mix, no added refined sugar, and the sweetness comes naturally from the fruit and agave. I use minimal ice because I use frozen fruit. If you happen to have fresh of course use it, but you’ll need to likely add more ice, which can water the drink down. One is never enough which is why the recipe makes two hearty drinks. All measurements are approximate and be sure to taste and tweak to your liking.
- 3/4 cup frozen mango chunks
- 3/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 3 to 4 ounces tequila, or as desired
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar, or to taste (you may need more depending on sweetness level of fruit)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice
- handful of ice cubes, optional and as necessary
- To the canister of a blender or food processor, add all ingredients (except the ice) and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.
- Stop to taste and see if it needs more sweetener, more lemon/lime juice, etc. and make adjustments as necessary. If desired, add ice. Blend on high speed until smooth.
- Divide mixture between two glasses and serve immediately. Recipe is intended for those for whom alcohol use is legal and appropriate. Always drink responsibly.

BTW…did you get a new camera? Your pictures have been on-point!
Not in the last 2 years! No new lenses or camera body for almost 2 years, but thanks!
Wow, it looks like sorbet! So tempting…I love that you’re using frozen fruit instead of ice to keep it from getting watered down!
Sorbet-like is the perfect way to describe the texture…yes!
I LOVE THIS. Can I have one for breakfast please? :)
Yes and that trip you’re on, hello that looks amazing!! Wish I was having these there with you :)
Oh mah goodness! Oh, this recipe is going to happen all summer long.
After steady days of 60+ degrees, it freaking snowed last night. I truly need something bright and full of sunshine to help with the pain of the cold (cold is my enemy). This looks about right!
This is killing me with the tropical sounding flavors right now. Sigh.
Omg.they.are.so.good. When I made these, we were having a hot snap here, like mid 80s or so. Went down beyond easily.
I need this in my life. I hope you don’t mind, I’m using this as my daily recipe suggestion on Twitter and Facebook. YUM. Thanks for sharing.
I bet the kids would love this too if it was made non-alcoholic! Or put it in a popsicle mold and freeze for the kids? Yum!
My daughter loves the non-alcoholic version of it as smoothies!
Since it’s Friday at 4 pm and I just got the worst work email, one of these looks like heaven right about now.
Ugh, I have had those days. Hang in there, and go out for drinks after work!
Averie. These look amazing!! I have a secret believe that agave was made for margaritas! It’s so perfect! And I agree, frozen mango is where it’s at! Pinning and making, pronto!
Enjoy, and thanks for pinning! If you do make it, LMK!
This looks so unbelievably delicious!
This is perfect for a Friday recipe! I don’t care if it is cool and overcast, I’m drinking mango pineapple margaritas tonight!
Enjoy!! Nothing like a margarita to forget about the weather outside anyway :)
Who needs warm weather to have a margarita? Margaritas are year-round drinks to me!
Really good job on the site, Keep up the good work!
This looks amazing and perfect for the warmer weather coming up!! Mango and pineapple are the perfect tropical combination! Delicious!!
This bright yummy looking drink makes me want to sit outside with one later this afternoon–we are to have brilliant sunshine and warmer than usual temperatures for mid April!!
Well my timing was good then! Enjoy your warm weather and your weekend! And hopefully a margarita :)
So, I mean this in the most non-creepy way but….I want to marry you for these.
I LOVE frozen “adult” drinks, but never order them due to all the sugar.
And then this happened. OBSESSED! Pinned!
I totally understand and will ONLY drink a frozen/blended drink at home, when I can control what goes in. When I’m out, it’s always on the rocks so there’s less empty liquid calories just being dumped in! Thanks for pinning!
It’s margarita season! I’m so excited. Using frozen fruit is so much better. Gives it that slushy, margarita-machine texture without the equipment! This one is super tropical and vibrant.
I love that slushy texture so much!
Mango and pineapples, two of my favourite fruits, agree with you, one doesn’t need warm weather to enjoy this margarita, I would love to have it any time of the day!
