CHEW THE RIGHT THING





BITE IT!

HG's Freezy-Fresa Strawberry Margarita



Berry Nice!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We've whipped up a whole new FREEZE-TASTIC

margarita recipe just for you, so we hope you're ready to party. Humans,

start your blenders...



Ingredients:

3/4 cup Sprite Zero (or any diet lemon-lime soda)

One shot (1.5 oz.) tequila

One serving (half a packet or 1/8th of a tub) sugar-free strawberry

powdered drink mix (any variety, like Crystal Light Strawberry-Kiwi or

Energy Wild Strawberry)

4 frozen unsweetened strawberries

2 tbsp. lime juice

1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 8 ice cubes

Optional Garnish: lime wedge



Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until uniform and slushy.



Pour into a nice glass and, if you like, garnish with a wedge of lime.



Drink up!

Serving Size: 1 margarita (entire recipe)

PointsPlus® value 5*



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*.













FIGHT IT!

Frozen Strawberry Margarita, Average



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!
