Skinny Strawberry Margaritas

Skinny Strawberry Margaritas

So I just realized like yesterday that Cinco de Mayo is coming up. You guys know how much I love Mexican food so any holiday that will allow for me to eat copious amounts of guacamole and drink a bunch of fruity margaritas is fine by me!

These skinny strawberry margaritas are inspired by my skinny raspberry margaritas. Margaritas are one of my favorite drinks, but the amount of sugar most restaurants put in them is just horrifying. I often feel like I am just drinking pure sugar more than anything else.

It takes a little more work to strain the seeds or you can choose to leave them in if you don’t mind them! This margarita comes in at about 190 calories. I sweetened it with agave nectar, but you could also use sugar if desired. I also lightly rimmed my glasses with some raw sugar.

  14. I made these, OMG soooo yummy! – We didn’t have the liquor / Triple sec, so I added an extra 1/2 tbsp agave. Served up with a chilie & salt rim with a lime garnish. Perfection! Thanks Stephanie!
