Recipe Notes

The key to keeping these lite and low calorie is to use fresh squeezed ingredients. If you'd like a frozen version. Add the ingredients into a blender with a 1/2 cup of ice. Blend until you reach your desired consistency. 

If you want to flavor it, just muddle some fruit in the bottom of your shaker before you add the ice in.  You can make anything from strawberry to mango margaritas this way!
