Healthy Frozen Strawberry Mocktail

I love a frozen margarita as much as the next person but sometimes I want a sweet, frosty drink without alcohol when the weather is hot.

So after I created this popular Frozen Pineapple Virgin Margarita, I started thinking about all the other flavors that would be great.

So of course I had to go with strawberries! Their sweet, fresh flavor is perfect when the sun is out.

And the best part is, you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries, so even if they’re not in season you can still make this drink!

Adding a bit of orange and lime juice rounds out the flavor, adds a bit of tartness to balance the sweetness and gives it more of a cocktail flavor.

But hey, if you want to add some 100% agave silver tequila, white rum, vodka or gin, that would be great, too.

Plus it’s so easy and takes only a few minutes to make. Let’s do it!

 

What you need for this Healthy Frozen Strawberry Mocktail

Ingredients:

  • Fresh or frozen (still frozen, not thawed) strawberries
  • orange juice (fresh is preferred but bottled is fine)
  • lime juice (fresh is preferred but bottled is fine)
  • water or ice

Equipment:

How to make this Healthy Frozen Strawberry Mocktail

For 2 drinks, start with 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries. I know it can be awkward to measure them in a measuring cup since they don’t fit in perfectly, but do your best and don’t worry about it.

If using fresh, remove the green tops.

Add the strawberries to a blender.

Add the orange juice and lime juice.

If you’re using fresh juice but don’t have a citrus juicer, this is what I do: Cut the orange or lime in half. Set a small mesh sieve over a measuring glass, stab the cut side of the orange or lime with a fork, aim the cut side down over the sieve and squeeze and rotate the fruit while twisting the fork until you gouge out every last drop of juice.

Then add the ice (if using fresh berries) or water (if using frozen) and blend!

If your blender has an ice crush function, start with that whether you’re using fresh or frozen berries. Then switch to a regular blend mode.

If it seems to thick, add water about 1 tablespoon at a time. If it’s too thin, add more berries.

Pour into a glass and garnish with a strawberry, if desired.

See the notes below the recipe for amounts to make more 4 drinks at a time.

Make ahead and storage

This non-alcoholic frozen drink can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days but it won’t be frozen anymore. It’ll just be a delicious strawberry mocktail.

You can also freeze the mixture in a freezer-safe, airtight container or baggie for up to 3 months. You will need to thaw it before it’s pourable again – this should take anywhere from 1-3 hours at room temperature or 4-6 hours in the fridge. If there are still large frozen chunks, you can re-blend it.

 

Substitutions and variations

  • You can use other fruit besides strawberries: cherries, raspberries, blueberries, chopped peaches, etc. I haven’t personally tried all these versions but they should work.
  • You can leave out the orange juice or lime juice, or use lemon juice instead for a strawberry lemonade flavor. Start with 2 tablespoons when making 2 drinks and add more if you like.
  • This would be great with fresh basil or mint either blended into the drink or the leaves added to the glass as a garnish.
  • Like I said above, feel free to add 100% agave silver tequila, white rum, vodka or gin.
