Super Skinny Limey Coconut Margaritas

CoconutMargaritas

So this marg is good, real good. I’m a hugeeee fan of tequila, coconut + margaritas so this hits all the spots!

But I’m super picky about my margs. I don’t want any of that nasty sweet + sour crap in my drink. Not only does it completely ruin the flavor of my tequila, but it also gives me an awful tummy ache, pumps too much sugar into my bloodstream + adds wayy too manyy cals. NO THANKS.

I like the skinny marg with the lime juice + a lil agave. That’s my jam when I’m out gettin’ my fiesta on.

I’ve kind of been spoiled because both my mom + my aunt make the most amazing margs you will ever have in your life. + it’s really hard to find a marg like theirs ANYWHERE so whenever I’m in the mood for a marg (which is basically every damn day), I like to convince everyone to come over for a little fiesta + whip up some healthy margs for us all to enjoy!

Coconut Margaritas:

Rub leftover lime around the rim of your glass + dip into shredded coconut. Fill glass with ice + pour in your shot of tequila. Next add the fresh squeezed lime juice. Fill the rest of your glass with coconut water + add a few drops of coconut stevia. Stir + enjoy!

If you’re not a huge tequila fan, add a lil more stevia or agave/honey to this. + try to find a tequila you really love. I used Patron here but it’s def not my fave. On the cheaper end, I LOVEEE Milagro Silver. It’s super smooth + almost has a sweeter finish so would go great with these!

I know we’re all getting ready for bikini season + doing our best to workout + stay on track so this is a perfect alternative to the nasty fake margs + pints of beer.

+ didn’t they just come out with something saying tequila helps you lose weight?! I’ll take TEN of these. Jkjkjk – everything in moderation no matter what, people!

Try + slowly make little changes like this to your lifestyle. Start choosing the healthier alternative always. I’m all about the 80/20 or 90/10 lifestyle. I try to eat as clean as possible 80-90% of the time + then let myself enjoy and indulge in things that aren’t so great for me 10-20% of the time. It works great, keeps me happy + then I don’t stress about my weight or the food I’m eating!

A delicious fresh juice that’ll make your fav cocktails that much better

I’m a BIG champs/mimosa drinker and I used to use store bought OJ like nobody’s business. + then I realized how awful it was! It’s loaded with refined sugar + some other crap that does not need to enter the bod.

That’s why I decided to start making my own juice. There is nothing like fresh squeezed OJ in your mimosa! I also love to mix it up + put some Suja juice into the champs! My favorites are Spark + Fuel! It makes me feel slightly better about drinking the champs when I’m mixing it with some fresh, good for you, juice!

Over the holidays there was a TON of drinking (hence why I’m partaking in Sobes January right meow) + getting creative. We started tossing watermelon cubes into our champs + then thought about some lovely watermelon juice cocktails!

Now, fresh watermelon juice is my jam. It’s sooo freakin delish! I could drink it all day, everyday. No joke.

Umm + it’s super easy to whip up! You don’t need a juicer for this one!

Watermelon Juice:

♥ 1 small, seedless watermelon

♥ key limes

Cut your watermelon + remove the rinds. Chop into cubes + toss into your blender. Squeeze as many limes as you want. We love lime here so we probably used about 10-12. Now, blend!
