Trying to be a little healthy on vacation, SAY WHAT? Yep, I did say trying right? But what is being in Margaritaville (Key West) without a few dozen margaritas? At least I can start my day off right with a delicious margarita smoothie even though the rest of the day and evening will be full of cheeseburgers in paradise, pina coladas and the real deal margaritas. 🙂

This smoothie can be made either with or without a frozen banana, just add more ice for a thicker, more slushie drink. I added Greek yogurt and protein powder to make it a more balanced healthy smoothie even though it gives the margarita a little creamier taste. Give it a try and let me know if it makes you dream of islands and palm trees.

Servings: 1 serving
Author: Linda Warren
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 oz Key Lime Greek yogurt (look for reduced fat variety, I like Chobani Simply 100)
  • 3-4 Tablespoons agave nectar, sweeten to taste
  • 1/2-1 frozen banana (optional)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • Ice to thicken
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to blender except ice. 
  2. Puree until smooth then add enough ice to bring it to desired consistency.
Recipe Notes

You can freeze the lime, lemon and orange juice to the slushy stage & you will get a thicker smoothie without the use of ice.
