Stay Skinny on Cinco de Mayo!

I love celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a margarita and some guacamole but I hate all of the extra calories that come along with my celebrating!  That is why I was so excited when I saw that Real Housewife of New York, Bethanny Frankel created the Skinnygirl Margarita!  It has only 100 calories per serving and, despite it's name, men love it too!  It is low calorie, all natural and pre-prepared so it is perfect for a party!  The best part is her low calorie "mock-a-mole" recipe!  Using a blender, you through her list of ingredients including avocado, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, tomato and garlic salt in and, voila, a low cal version of one of my favorites!  If you are still one of those people who loves to mix your own drinks, check out Bethanny's youtube video demonstrating how to make a frozen margarita.  Her best tip is to rim your glasses with both sugar and salt!  Cheers!

  1. Kimberly - I have a quick, easy, delicious and healthy version of guacamole that is always a big hit. In glass bowl layer avocado slices, fresh lemon or lime juice, garlic salt and your favorite jarred picante sauce. "Cut" the ingredients together with pastry cutter or two dinner knives. Also, avocado slices sprinkled with champagne vinegar, paprika, salt and pepper made a delicious side dish or real sandwich pick-me-up!
