4 frozen unsweetened strawberries
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 8 ice cubes
Optional Garnish: lime wedge

HG Alternative! If you're under 21 (or just dance funny when you're tipsy), try this virgin version -- simply swap the tequila for an extra 1/4 cup of the soda. That liquor-less slushfest clocks in with only around 28 calories and a PointsPlus® value of 0*.

Mess-a-rita!
Most frozen strawberry margaritas, while delicious, contain a silly amount of calories. Full of sugary fruit, various unidentifiable sweet mixes, and (of course!) tequila, there's no telling what you're getting yourself into when you order one at some random bar or Mexican restaurant. The stats below are for a regular-sized margarita, but many of the ginormous ones you find at chain restaurants have WAY more calories than that. Ay, caramba! Here's an idea... Avoid ordering fruity frozen margaritas when you're out on the town, and make a deal with yourself that you'll only sip these crazy cocktail slushies when you make 'em with your very own hands. Sound reasonable? Good. To sweeten the deal, next time you whip out your blender for "Margarita Night," throw together a bowl of Holy Moly Guacamole and some Cheesy Beefy Quesadillas for a full-on Mexican fiesta. Party at YOUR place... Woohoo!
