When made correctly, a margarita is one of the most refreshing and satisfying drinks you will ever taste. This Cantaloupe Skinny Margarita is made with fresh juices, fresh cantaloupe, liquor, and agave for a drink you can’t resist.
Skinny Margarita Versus Regular
Of course, we have all had a margarita, but what is the difference between a skinny margarita and a regular margarita?
Well, as the name suggests, a skinny margarita is a lower-calorie version of the regular margarita. If you are trying to lose weight or stick to a low-calorie diet, a skinny margarita is a better option. This is because instead of using syrupy sweet margarita mixes, the skinny margarita uses fresh juices, fresh fruit, and an orange-flavored liqueur to give them their margarita flavor.
With the fresh fruit that is added to the Cantaloupe Skinny Margarita, you will get a little nutrition. However, the big news with this skinny margarita is that it will save you a few calories.
Additionally, regular margaritas are paired with salty, fatty treats like chips and cheese dip. Whereas those who go with a skinny margarita will pair their drink with lighter snacks. Guacamole instead of cheese dip with some homemade tortilla chips is a better option.
