I don’t know how the weather is by you, but it is HOT here in Texas. Last year, I feel like I was riding my bike around with no problem. This year I am melting. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve become a complete wuss.
And all I want is these COLD margs. I blended up these refreshing Skinny Watermelon Mint Margaritas and they are amazing for this summer heat.
And who doesn’t love watermelon? It’s so refreshing and juicy and just amazing. What I don’t love about watermelon… is carrying it up three floors to my apartment. In 100 degrees. Oof.
But it was worth it. I had a massive watermelon which allowed me to enjoy some fresh, and also freeze for margs!
And they will definitely be made this Fourth of July weekend!
These skinny margs have simple ingredients. All sugar is naturally from the watermelon and there is a tablespoon of Chia seeds!
A few of my other girlfriends whipped up their own healthy(ish) cocktails for this weekend. Therefore, you can still enjoy yourself this holiday!
Check out these other cocktails:
Backyard Bourbon Fizz, from Emily, A Time to Kale
Fresh Fruit Margaritas, from JP, Jennifer Pierce Health
Cheers y’all! Stay cool and safe this Fourth of July!
