Recipe: Sassy Skinny Margarita

recipe: Smoothies and Drinks

Ditch those pre-made mixes and try this simple healthy margarita recipe that's low calorie and delicious!

I love a good margarita, but if you plan on ordering one at a restaurant, you might need to squeeze in an extra workout! The super-sized frozen margaritas commonly served at Mexican restaurants are typically well over 700 calories. This easy recipe my husband and I came up with has only six simple ingredients and is a snap to make. Now, whip up a batch of our Guacamole and throw a fiesta already!

Yield: 4 serving(s)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup triple sec
  • Juice from 6 limes
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon stevia to make simple syrup, and add syrup to taste (Simple syrup is stevia with hot water)
  • Margarita salt for the rim of glasses
  • Tequila (we use 1 cup for this recipe, but add what you prefer)

Directions

  1. Juice limes, lemons, and add in triple sec and tequila to a pitcher.
  2. Make your simple syrup by mixing Truvia sweetner with a little hot water in a small bowl, and then add your simple syrup to margaritas to taste. Mix margaritas well.
  3. Rim 4 glasses with salt and pour the skinny margarita over ice.
  4. Garnish with a wedge of lime and lemon on each glass.

How many calories per serving. Is it 356 divided by 4 or 356 per drink ? Thanks
