Skinny Watermelon Margarita Recipe

I have often said “RunEatRepeat” is a love letter to running and watermelon.

There is no denying my passion for watermelon. And after countless calls and letters and begging – my crush has finally answered my calls and we are making beautiful things together…


No. I am not pregnant.

But I am making a love child with watermelon as I am going to be a Watermelon Ambassador and bring you watermelon recipes, information and random musings for the next six months!

And I thought it only fitting to combine my love for Watermelon with my Mexican heritage and start off my watermelon recipe series with a Watermelon Margarita. Enjoy one this Sunday on Cinco de Mayo!!

We all want to drink, but also want to fit in our skinny jeans so here’s a Skinny Margarita Recipe featuring my favorite fruit.

Swipe the lime around the rim of the margarita glass and roll it in a salt/sugar mix. I put 1/4 cup salt, 1/4 cup sugar in a container and dip the rim in that for sweet margaritas.

  2. Lexa says

    I am going to have to buy a watermelon when I go to the grocery store tonight. Congrats on becoming an ambassador.

    Gotta admit I used to hate watermelon when I was younger. It was always around in the summer by the pool but I was never a fan. Things have changed since then though. I love flavored margaritas but don’t think I’ve ever had a watermelon one- sounds good!

    I can’t wait until watermelon season! I eat it EVERY SINGLE DAY over the summer. There is always watermelon in the fridge or a spare one in the pantry, like most people always have milk in the house. Running out means anxiety and chaos D:

    They have to have a watermelon promotion board? That’s just as wild as having campaigns for people to eat avocados. I mean those 2 things are so delicious, who needs convincing?

  6. says

    Oh WOW! I am totally making these this summer! I love a drink recipe with stevia. (And watermelon is bangin’ too.) Thanks for the great recipe!

  7. says

    Slurp! This concoction looks amazing! Something I’d crave for everyday during warm weather. I love watermelon too – they are extremely versatile and are perfect for smoothies, desserts and more

    Hi Monica!

    This looks great! I just wanted to ask you why you haven’t posted about your recent weight loss (besides mentioning it here and there). You look great in photos but I find it frustrating that this is a weight loss/health blog and you haven’t talked about it much yet. Keep doing what you are doing though, looking good!

  9. says

    Hi Natalie, I know I need to write a weight loss post soon. I just have’t had the time to do it justice. Do you have any specific questions you’d like me to address?

    • Natalie says

      I am excited to read about your weight loss journey in general so anything about what you find works/didn’t work and what had the greatest effect would be great! good luck in the marathon tomorrow!

  10. Nadine says

    I made this today and it was sooo delicious! I will be making this all summer long this year! Thanks for the great recipe!

  11. Monica says

    Seriously I can’t wait to make this recipe! I heart Watermelon (though probs not as much as you)
