I can up with this recipe when I discovered how caloric a regular margarita is: usually in the 300-500 cal range. These are fruity, tasty, and an 8oz portion has the same calories as a glass of wine or a beer (around 150-200). NOTE: although I used nectarines for this recipe, any fresh, ripe fruit (peaches, mangoes, grapes, strawberries, kiwi) can be used - even in combination. I've used them all. Also, substitute rum for the tequila and it becomes a frozen daiquiri of sorts.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups nectarines, unpeeled,diced
  • 34 cup prepared sweet-and-sour mix (Mr and Mrs T, etc)
  • 8 fluid ounces tequila
  • 3 cups ice cubes (approx. 2 trays worth)
  • sugar or Splenda sugar substitute, to taste (optional)


  1. All measurements are approximate.
  2. Cut fruit into 1 inch chunks; lightly pack in a 2-cup measuring cup.
  3. Add sweet&sour mix to the 2-cup level (the amount will vary according to how tightly the fruit is packed- somewhere between 1/2 to 3/4 cup).
  4. Add Sugar/Splenda if desired- but we never do.
  5. Put into blender and blenderize for 1 minute.
  6. Add tequila and ice and blenderize for another minute.
  7. Enjoy!
