EatingWell Test Kitchen
“This frozen mocktail is so delicious and beautiful! Layers of blended strawberries and mango with a touch of zesty citrus flavor combine for a fun nonalcoholic drink without all the extra calories and sugar of a traditional restaurant margarita.”

Ingredients

    • 3 cups frozen strawberries
    • 3 cups ice, divided
    • 1 cup water, divided
    • ⅔ cup lime juice, divided
    • ½ cup orange juice, divided
    • ¼ cup simple syrup (see Tip), divided
    • 3 cups frozen mango chunks

Directions

  • 1 Place strawberries, 1½ cups ice, ½ cup water, ⅓ cup lime juice, ¼ cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons simple syrup in a blender. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a pitcher or bowl.
  • 2 Rinse out the blender jar. Place mango and the remaining 1½ cups ice, ½ cup water, ⅓ cup lime juice, ¼ cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons simple syrup in the blender. Puree until smooth.
  • 3 Decoratively layer the two margaritas in 6 glasses. Leave the layers distinct or partially stir together for a swirled design.
  • Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1½ cups.
