Here’s a Skinny Margarita recipe to enjoy on occasion. It’s lightened up to help you enjoy the 80 Twenty way of life and meet your health and fitness goals!

Original Margarita: about 500 calories thanks to loads of sugar in the lemon-lime mix. Not to mention all of the unnecessary salt!
Our Skinny Margarita: by using real lime juice and stevia simple syrup, we save 400 calories!
Stevia has 0 calories and 0 grams of sugar. Make extra stevia simple syrup and you can use it to sweeten coffee, tea and more!
It’s a far better alternative than artificial sweeteners such as sucralose (trade name: Splenda) and aspartame. They can mess with your metabolism, ruin your gut health and may actually raise blood sugar levels and lead to weight gain. Not good!
Enjoy this taste of summer you can feel good about (in moderation, of course)! I also like to have this as a virgin margarita and top with sparkling water. So delicious!
