Vitamix Whole Fruit Margarita Recipe
Step 1: The Right Ingredients
Before you can blend up a cocktail in your Vitamix, you’ll need to pick out the right ingredients.
For this whole fruit margarita recipe, you will need: –
- 3/4 cup of ruby red grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed or bottled)
- 3/4 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice (again, do not use pre-made orange juice)
- 4 ounces of fresh lime juice (this is about 2 limes)
- 1 tablespoon of agave nectar (or any other sweetener that you like)
- 4 cups of ice cubes (crushed for more flavor and texture)
You can add salt on the rim if desired but it’s not necessary.
Step 2: Putting It Together
Now that you have all of your ingredients ready, it is time to put them together!
Here is how you make this refreshing whole fruit margarita in your Vitamix blender.
Throw in the grapefruit juice, orange juice, lime juice, agave nectar, and ice in your blender.
Cover with the lid and press “frozen” for 10 seconds so it can blend up better.
Then press on any one of the preset buttons (smoothie, soup, or frozen drink) until you get your desired consistency.
You can also go back and forth between presets if you want a more smooth or chunky version. And voila! Your Vitamix whole fruit margarita is ready to go.
Step 3: Enjoy Your Blended Cocktail With Friends!
Now that you have your drink blended up, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself with friends.
You can serve this at a party or just give it to guests as a refreshing treat during the next family barbecue. And don’t forget that any blender can make a margarita!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Blend This Recipe In A Traditional Blender?
You can, but it will probably not come out quite the same. If you want to try a traditional blender, just add all of the ingredients and pulse until mixed thoroughly.
Can I Use A Pre-Made Orange Drink Instead Of Squeezing My Own Oranges?
Yes, it should work fine. The Vitamix whole fruit margarita recipe has been tested with both types of orange juice and they taste the same! Just make sure it’s 100% pure orange juice so you get all of the yummy flavors in your cocktail.
What Kind Of Sweetener Should I Use For This Recipe?
Agave nectar is the recommended sweetener for this recipe, but you can try out brown sugar or honey as well. They may also be sweeter than agave nectar so you can use less to taste (though not much!).
Can I Make The Margaritas Ahead Of Time?
Yes, they should stay fresh for about 24 hours in your fridge.
Are There Any Substitutions For This Recipe?
You can substitute grapefruit juice with lemon/lime if desired, just keep in mind that it will change the taste slightly. If you want to use another kind of citrus fruit, feel free! Just be sure to wash it thoroughly before using.
