Sinless Low Calorie Cocktail Mixes – 0 Points +

Sinless Cocktail Mixers

As temperatures heat up, it’s time to cool down with some delicious and light summer cocktails! When I first found about these low calorie non-alcoholic mixes, I was pretty excited to give them a try, but a bit skeptical that they would taste good.

Made with Stevia instead of artificial sweeteners or sugar, each 3oz serving has just 5 calories, 0 fat and 2 carbohydrates, making them 0 Points +. However, don’t forget to count the Points of your alcohol when mixing them! They come in 4 amazing flavors: Margarita Mix, Mojito Mix, Sour Mix and Strawberry Margarita Mix.
