3 Ingredient Skinny MargaritaA Keto Margarita Recipe
Are you allowed to drink alcohol on the Keto Diet?
Yes. Alcohol can have a place in your Keto Diet in moderation.
Here's a few things you should know...
Be in a state of ketosis for at least ten days before experimenting with adding alcohol.
Avoid alcohol your first two to three weeks while your body adapts to this new way of eating.
If you're going to enjoy a low-carb cocktail, pair it with a fat.
My favorite way to do this is with cheese or a fat bomb!
Realize that alcohol is processed in your body similarly to sugar (but actually faster).
Alcohol has a place only in moderation. Drinking regularly will hinder your weight loss goals.
I won't go to deep into this today as I'm working on a Vlog on alcohol and Keto and I'll save that topic for later!
Let's get into the Skinny Margarita Recipe!
This sugar free margarita has just three ingredients (plus water) and is simple to mix up. Many margarita recipes call for Triple Sec which we have omitted to make this more authentic-- like what you'd drink in Mexico! This also keeps the carb count much lower.
This Keto Margarita recipe has just three net carbs and 76 calories per serving.
Mix all ingredients.
You can jazz up this recipe a little more by using sparkling water instead of plain water!
Try a tequila mojito by adding mint leaves!
What Substitutions Will Work?
Keto Sweetener Substitutions
You can use just about any alternative sweetener for this Skinny Keto Margarita Recipe.
If you decide to use a granulated sweetener, I recommend you mix it into your water until it's dissolved and then mix it into the remaining ingredients.
My favorite granulated sweetener is Bocha Sweet because it has the taste of real sugar.
If you haven't tried it yet, you really should! I used Stevia here just because it's easier and already in liquid form!
