5 Ingredient Healthy Virgin Margarita


Although summer is coming to a close rapidly, I wanted to share this great recipe for a virgin margarita. This drink is perfect for a summer evening or even any time of the day!

Obviously I am not yet of age, so this recipe is lacking alcohol but could easily be altered to make it alcoholic as you wish :-).

I had asked my dad (as a joke) to make me a margarita a couple weeks ago, but of course we don’t just have mix laying around the house, so he took it as a challenge to make one from scratch. He told me to go outside while he made it and he came out with this super upscale drink, completed with the glass and salt on the rim!:) I really couldn’t ask for a better dad..

1/2 cup orange juice
splash of grapefruit juice
lime ice (squeezed lime juice frozen)
1 packet Truvia
4 ice cubes

Blend everything on high until desired consistency, enjoy in a cup or if you want to get fancy- a margarita glass!

If you want to get even FANCIER– lay a ring of salt on a flat plate. Dip top of margarita glass into water and press salt onto the edge. Makes for a perfect summer treat!

Enjoying one of the many I have made since:)


Transitions and thankfulness

One of the biggest transitions a person goes through is finishing high school and starting college. I’m moving to Washington in two weeks, so to make the change as smooth as possible, I’ve taken a break from blogging and my “normal” routine. Yesterday was the last day of my internship as well. I’m so excited to start this new chapter of my life and am so blessed to be able to go to such a great university.

On another note…

Something I wanted to share with you all is an excerpt from the book I was reading with my coworkers over the course of the summer.

How awesome is this?? I truly believe this is how life should be lived. I challenge you to try this for one whole day! You’ll be amazed at how refreshed you feel knowing that your relationship with Christ is being strengthened. The only thing is that this is not a one-time thing. As with all relationships, you need to nurture it and invest time into it. Just like with living healthily, it’s a habit, not a one- and- done.

Happy Friday ya’ll
