On my way to a pool party, keeping in mind that I can eat, drink and be merry, without blowing this bod in a bikini. Thought I’d share what I’ll be serving up at a few fiestas including Ginger Mango Margaritas, Tacos: Beef, Chicken or Vegan, Mexican Cole Slaw, Rainbow Salsa and Mexican Layer Dip.

Consistent with all my Rotten Recipe Revamps (RRRs), I’ve made the nutritionally hideous healthy with variations on dishes, desserts, and today DRINKS that typically derail any diets. As always these recipes are free of gluten and refined sugar and lower in fat and calories than the traditional diet bombs.

I'll kick off your fiesta posting the Ginger Mango Margarita. Find the rest of your treats using the link below.

Buenos suerte!

Ginger Mango Margarita

A toast to our Mexican neighbors for giving us the #1 selling cocktail in America, the Margarita. Ole!

Unfortunately, the typical margarita at packs 400-500 calories into a 12 oz drink, 90% of which are processed sugar! You smarties already know forcing your bod to metabolize sugar with your alcohol increases the depletion of B vitamins, which is like handing the hangover demons an energy drink. Choose real fruit for flavor and sweetness over a powdered or frozen mix. You'll cut sugar and calories, increase buzz, and reduce the ferocity of a hangover. Additionally, using a silver tequila not only mixes better for taste than a darker aged tequila (which would add a conflicting oaky flavor), but it also has fewer impurities sticking around the next day making you feel less jovial. I recommend Patron Silver. Lastly, fresh ginger not only adds complimentary spice to the sour lime, tequila and sweet mango, but also aids in digestion. I warn you in advance, this is one strong mix! Please replace some of the tequila with additional lime juice or water if you aren’t on a mission to get blitzed. Enjoy this reduced calorie margarita poolside, at a beach bbq or anytime when you want to feel festive, not fatty. Serves 2.

1 small orange (peeled and seeded)
2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 cups frozen diced mango (unsweetened)
1 tbsp stevia
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 juicy limes)
1 cup silver tequila (80 proof)
1 cup water

DIRECTIONS: Put orange, mango, ginger, stevia, lime juice, tequila, and water into a blender in this order as the unfrozen fruit lubes the blade for the mango chunks. Blend until smooth. Add additional teaspoons water and/or lime juice if blades stick.

VARIATIONS: Substitute another frozen fruit for all or part of the mango. Ideally something tangy to complement the tequila and lime. Berries are ideal " blue, razz, strawberries solo or in any combo.
