Is it bad that it’s only 10 am and I’m already ready for a margarita?
Just kidding…don’t answer that.
But seriously, margaritas, how awesome are they? Aside from champagne, margaritas are my current obsession. I can’t get enough of these bad boys…errr, girls? Each highly inappropriate when written out.
Anyway, you’ll love these FROZEN PINEAPPLE DRAGON FRUIT MARGARITAS.
Perfect for summertime (it’s already in the 90’s here in Sacramento!), these ice-cold tequila slushies are everything. I mean, c’mon you guys, do you see that perfection down there? Little do you know right after I took that photo I definitely started to scoop it out of the blender by the spoonful.
And into my mouth. Because really, glasses are totally over-rated.
Actually, don’t listen to me. The blade in that blender is sharp. Not to mention the danger of just eating the whole thing. I mean, you’d be ok, but you would NOT be ok the next day.
Anyway, don’t be intimidated by the dragon fruit bit of these Frozen Pineapple Dragon Fruit Margaritas.
- You can find frozen dragon fruit at many major retailers.
- It’s not like durian or jackfruit where you may or may not like it. Dragon fruit is legit.
- There’s pineapple in there, too. You know, just in case.
- And tequila.
- Oh, and it’s pink. IT’S BRIGHT PINK.

Frozen Pineapple Dragon Fruit Margaritas
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 2 cups ice
- 12 ounces frozen dragon fruit
- 6 ounces frozen pineapple
- 1 cup tequila
- ½ cup orange liqueur
- ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- salt - to rim glasses
- pineapple wedges, dragon fruit, and lime - to garnish
- Add the pineapple juice, ice, dragon fruit, and frozen pineapple to a large high-speed blender. Pulse a few times to start the blending process.
- Add the tequila, orange liqueur, and fresh lime juice to the blender and process until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add additional pineapple juice (or tequila) as needed to help move things along. I wanted my margarita to be thick and smoothie-like so it took a little patience and stopping to mix with a spatula before processing again before I got the consistency I wanted.
- Rim the desired number of glasses with sugar or salt and garnish with fresh pineapple, dragon fruit, and lime wedges, if desired.

Jessica Randhawa says
I bought my Dragon Fruit pre-peeled and frozen from my local grocery store. If that is not available at your local store, then you peel the tough outer layer of the dragon fruit, chop into small cubes, and then freeze.
