Umm, wow…let’s just say moving your entire apartment, being sick, running your own business, teaching Pilates classes and clients, running a fitness challenge, and getting engaged all in about two weeks time is EXHAUSTING!
Oh yeah, did you like how I slipped that little tidbit in there?!
That’s right, Nik and I are officially engaged!!💍
I’m going to share a whole blog post about it soon, but I just couldn’t wait to tell you ladies anymore!! We are so excited and can’t wait for all the planning and celebrations to begin!
But anyway, before the big move into a beautiful new apartment — a little tour is coming soon! — I was able to create and snatch a few pictures of this amazing little treat, and let me tell you it’s delicious! I know ladies, it’s a touch job ladies, but somebody has to do it.😘
I’ve mentioned before that I am trying to make this little blog more of a lifestyle blog — but don’t worry there will always be fitness and workouts here! — so with that, I want to make sure that I can still provide you with posts and recipes that will fit into a healthy lifestyle — enter in this amazing SKINNY sangria recipe.🍹
I call it skinny because there is no sugar or simple syrup added to it so you save a TON on calories. I also decided to leave out the extra alcohol — you know vodka, rum, or bourbon. To be honest, I’m a light weight these days, and 2-3 classes of wine is about all I need to feel a good buzz — besides, who wants to be a sloppy mess when you’re out drinking anyway??
So I opted out of adding extra booze. But TRUST ME this recipe is completely delicious without it.👅💦
The best part is that wine and bubbly are some of the lowest calorie booze options out there, so a glass of this tasty little concoction is only about 130 calories. Not to mention, all that sugar and extra booze is to blame for a “sangria hangover” the next day…so with this skinny little sangria, you won’t have to worry about it!
I’d also like to mention that the fruits used in this recipe are PERFECT for a light and refreshing winter sangria — even though rose is usually called :summer water” who doesn’t love a glass of rosé all year -round?? Plus, isn’t the color of it gorgeous?!💕
This recipe is the absolute most PERFECT recipe to share with your girlfriends for a special Gal-entine’s get together, or even just for a special girl’s night in anytime of year.
- 1 pink grapefruit, sliced
- 1 (750mL) bottle rosé wine
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1 (750mL) bottle rosé sparkling wine
- Add the grapefruit to the bottom of your pitcher, and pour in the rosé wine and the pomegranate juice. Stir gently to combine.
- Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and allow the mixture to infuse for at least 4 hours.
- When ready to serve, add the pomegranate seeds, and gentry stir. Spoon some of the fruit into a serving glass, fill the glass about 3/4 with the wine and add a generous splash of the sparkling wine on top. YUMMM!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day??💕
