Cantaloupe Coconut Margarita - your new favorite frozen summer cocktail! Fresh cantaloupe, coconut milk, lime juice, and tequila!

We have less than 3 weeks until school starts.

THREE WEEKS.

I can survive it.

I think.

Summer is fun but summer is hard. Especially if you work from your kitchen table.

I had no idea my children were full of so many questions.

Plus, I miss the little things. Like, a quick trip to the grocery store for limes and eggs that doesn’t end in a total meltdown because someone wants a Lunchables.

Or a day trip to Austin just because I’m bored and I got all my work turned in ahead of deadline.

Or, you know, just not having to talk to anyone for several hours.

I miss these things.

Anyway.

I’m having a major thing with coconut milk right now. The canned stuff, not the watery stuff in the carton.

I make sunshine sauce at least once a day, usually for breakfast, with sweet potato noodles and ground turkey and it’s amazing and delicious and then I crave coconut milk all day long.

I don’t know what it is. It’s just the most delicious thing. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I always put a can in the fridge and then I wait for it to separate and eat the cream straight.

Whatever. Paleo AF.

So, of course, I love a margarita made with coconut milk. This one has my beloved, plus cantaloupe, fresh lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. And you know that I don’t love a frozen drink but since it’s 100 degrees this week and I’m insisting on having the a/c off and the windows open, I’m greeting all my guests with a frozen drink.

Look, I may be your weird hippie friend but at least I make you margaritas.
