This skinny coconut margarita is lightened up with Bai5 in place of cream of coconut. They’re refreshing, crisp, and perfect for any margarita lover.

I have a new addiction. It’s name is Bai5. It’s my new go-to drink alternative to water and coffee. Bai5 antioxidant beverages are super fruit infused, sweetened with stevia, are naturally caffeinated and have just 5 calories per serving. 5.

There are so many great flavors but so far, my faves are blueberry, clementine and of course, coconut. Coconut being the inspiration for this fine, fabulous skinny coconut margarita.

This margarita is really lightened up from the original cream of coconut laden margarita. Don’t get me wrong, that version is delicious. And I could drink them for days. But really, the skinny version is the way to go if you actually want to be able to drink them for days. (psst: you can drink more…! {as long as you drink responsibly people.})

These coconut margarita recipes are pretty straight forward. They’re pretty much modeled after my Jalapeño Margarita recipe because I really like the tequila:grand marina:lime juice ratio. I used the Bai5 Molokai Coconut in place of the agave nectar. I did use a little bit more of the coconut since it’s not as sweet as the agave simple syrup and I wanted to have a little stronger coconut flavor.

These margaritas are almost like having a classic margarita but with a really refreshing and subtlety delicious coconut flavor. They’re also strong so if you like a weaker margarita, feel free to use less tequila or grand marnier. We like our drinks strong 😉

They’re so good and they’re perfect for sipping on. Enjoy!
