Happy Cinco De Mayo
We put together the most delicious perfect and healthy Guacamole and Spicy Margarita mocktail so you can plan ahead for Cinco De Mayo.
Guacamole is one of our favorite dips and has so many health benefits. It is simply a combination of healthy plant foods all smashed into a healthy snack and is lower in calories than most dips. It requires no preservatives or additives and has heart-healthy monounsaturated fats as well as gut-friendly fiber and it is so easy to prepare.

- 2 jalapeño chiles, seeded and chopped
- 2 Tbs. minced fresh cilantro, plus cilantro leaves for garnish

In a bowl or molcajete put the onion, jalapeños, lime juice, garlic and 1/2 tsp. salt and smash with a pestle or fork to a coarse paste. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh into the mix. Now add the minced cilantro and mix and mash some more.

Grapefruit Skinny Spicy Margarita Mocktail is our healthy version made with fresh grapefruit juice, tart lime juice, sparkling water, and sweetened with agave syrup. We like to add a scoop of our Fat Burning Lemonade mix to increase the slimming benefit. Shaken up this refreshing mocktail is sure to be a new favorite and for us it hits the spot every single time.
