A typical restaurant margarita can be more than 400 calories!
This Cinco de Mayo, treat your guests to a lighter take on this classic Mexican cocktail by mixing up some Arctic Zero Low-Cal Coconut Margaritas.
Arctic Zero is a fat free, gluten free frozen dessert that is also lactose intolerant friendly. One pint has just 150 calories: about a quarter of what your typical ice cream packs.
On top of its low-calorie profile, one pint of Arctic Zero has 8 grams dietary fiber and 12 grams protein – 2 important nutrients that help promote satiety, the feeling of fullness.
Thanks to samples provided by Arctic Zero, I concocted this Low-Cal Coconut Margarita using the Coconut flavor frozen dessert. One cup of this margarita has just 85 calories, but all of the flavor and fun of the traditional tipple!
