This refreshing tart treat has only 5 key ingredients

- Simple Homemade Date Syrup
You'll also need ice for blending.
How to prepare this Margarita Mocktail
Put all ingredients, plus ice, into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. I used a Nutribullet. If the ingredients jam up, stop, and remove the container from the base. Shake the contents and then return to the blender. Add water to make it more of a drinkable consistency. Top with a pinch of lime zest for more lime flavor. Enjoy!
The sweetness comes from the frozen grapes and simple homemade date syrup. At the same time, the avocado gives this treat its creaminess. Fresh lime gives this a beautiful fresh tartness.
