There’s just something about spring and summer that increase my cravings for a frozen cocktail. As someone who hates overly sugary drinks, it’s often hard for me to find a frozen drink that I actually like.

Most restaurants load up their drink machines with syrup and sugar. It’s hard for me to consume 1/4th of their drink, let alone the whole thing! I love to make my own cocktails at home because I can directly control the ingredients.

  3. Blend for 45-60 seconds.
  4. Pour the margaritas into glasses.

Are Margaritas OK on Keto Diet?

A typical margarita is not keto-friendly. Most average about 500 calories and are loaded with refined sugar and sometimes high fructose corn syrup. 

You can make your margarita keto-friendly by using natural ingredients.

How Many Carbs

This frozen margarita has 4 net carbs. The frozen margarita at Chili’s has 20 grams of sugar. This recipe cuts that.

How to Order a Margarita in the Bar

This post on How to Order a Skinny Margarita suggests that you first establish clear communication with the bartender and make them aware you do not want any sweet and sour mix in your margarita. Make sure they don’t add any agave nectar either, as that is just pure sugar as well. 

Tell the bartender you want nothing but tequila and club soda. And then you want a slice of lime to squeeze into the drink.

Cocktail Recipe Tips

  1. Use a quality blender. I use my Instant Pot Ace Blender for these. A decent blender should work just fine.
  2. Add more ice to the mixture to thicken up the margaritas if you like them really thick.
  3. Try to avoid using fresh fruit (if you want thick margaritas). The frozen fruit will thicken up the cocktail.
  4. A mid-range priced tequila will work well in this recipe. I wouldn’t go cheap, but I also wouldn’t use a top-shelf brand since it will be blended with other ingredients.
  5. Keep in mind that as the drink melts, the tequila taste will lighten up. I like to add a little more tequila than normal for this purpose.

Will Alcohol Knock You Out of Ketosis?

While I’m in ketosis one drink will usually do me just fine. I’m the type of girl who typically enjoys a few cocktails when I’m out for a good time. A keto lifestyle is completely different. You will feel the effects of alcohol a lot sooner. This is due to a change in metabolism and depleted glycogen.

In general, while on a healthy lifestyle alcohol can inhibit results if you are trying to lose weight. When you drink alcohol your liver will use the products of the metabolized alcohol instead of fat. Which means instead of burning fat, your body is working to get the alcohol out of your body.

Occasional drinks should not harm results. If you drink often during the week or every weekend, you could be slowing your fat-burning process down. Read more about If Alcohol Will Knock You Out of Ketosis here.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz tequila You can add more for a stronger cocktail
  • 1/2 cup monkfruit simple syrup Use DISCOUNT CODE STAYSNATCHED for savings
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries If you use fresh fruit, your margaritas will be harder to thicken.
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice The amount of limes will vary based on the size of your limes
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • 2 cups of ice
  • sliced lime to garnish
  • salt to garnish

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender. Blend for 45-60 seconds until the mixture forms a drink.
  • Taste the drink repeatedly to assess if it needs more tequila, syrup, etc. To thicken the texture you can add more ice. If so you may need to add more tequila as well.
  • Add one tablespoon of fresh lime juice and kosher salt (enough to line your margarita glass) to a glass rimmer.
  • Dip the margarita glass in the fresh lime juice and then the salt to line the rim of the glass. You can also use sweetener.
  • Pour the margaritas into the margarita glass

Notes

Keto Low-Carb Frozen Margarita Tips:

  1. You can make your own simple syrup using 1/4 cup monkfruit sweetener and 1/4 cup of water. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool. Using monkfruit simple syrup is a lot easier.
  2. Use a quality blender. I use my Instant Pot Ace Blender for these. A decent blender should work just fine.
  3. Add more ice to the mixture to thicken up the margaritas if you like them really thick.
  4. Try to avoid using fresh fruit (if you want thick margaritas). The frozen fruit will thicken up the cocktail.
  5. A mid-range priced tequila will work well in this recipe. I wouldn’t go cheap, but I also wouldn’t use a top-shelf brand since it will be blended with other ingredients.
  6. Keep in mind that as the drink melts, the tequila taste will lighten up. I like to add a little more tequila than normal for this purpose.

These margaritas were fantastic.I made them for a couple friends and they loved them too. I made my own simple syrup with the monkfruit sweetener and it was so easy. I can't wait to try more of your recipes.

I loved this margarita! It was very refreshing. It had the perfect balance of sweetness and tart that we are looking for in a good margarita. I never thought to make a monk fruit simple syrup! I am definitely going to use that for all my cocktails this summer.
