So This Margarita Walks Into a Bar…

…and makes a really yummy, cool and creamy treat, even without the tequila.

I recently hosted book club and made some delicious Strawberry Margarita Bars to serve as dessert.  Then we started drinking real margaritas and eating chips and salsa and I completely forgot to serve it. The family has enjoyed it for dessert, though!

This is my favorite kind of dessert for summer: No baking, very little prep time, and light in taste and calories.

Strawberry Margarita Bars

1-1/2 cups crushed pretzels
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz.) fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 cup pureed strawberries
1/2 cup lime juice(I used bottled)
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Free, thawed
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

1. Mix pretzel crumbs, sugar, and butter in 13×9-inch pan; press onto bottom of pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Combine condensed milk, pureed strawberries and lime juice in large bowl. Gently stir in COOL WHIP; pour over crust.
3. Freeze at least 6 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Serve topped with sliced strawberries.

How easy it that, I ask you?  Enjoy!

  1. Dang, girl! I can’t keep up with you! I spend time getting the yard in shape so you won’t be ashamed when you get home, and look what you come up with!

    This looks so good, I may have to go buy some berries while I wait for my first harvest! Hey, by the way, what happened to the print receipe thingy? It’s ok, I can alway cut and past. Gotta keep my “Megan’s Cookbook” up-to-date, don’t you know!

    Glad the big guy had a nice Father’s day. Looking foward to seeing it in person next year! (Grin)

    • I know, I was trying to write too many posts at once and forgot to write my recipe in Word so I could post it with a “print” feature. I’ll try to do better…promise!

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
