Get your freak on this Halloween with these 31 Best Skinny Halloween Cocktails you won’t believe are diet-friendly!
If you’re trying to lose weight – or just stick to your healthy whole foods diet – Halloween can be a difficult holiday to navigate.
You might have parties, trick or treat, family get-togethers, and chances are, you will be tempted by loads of high-calorie Halloween treats.
Halloween is also the start of the holiday season.
For many of us trying to follow a healthier lifestyle, this might normally be the time you fall completely off your healthy eating plan from Halloween through New Years.
Can you relate?
I hear this story from my clients time and again. They eat too much of their kids’ Halloween candy.
And for some, that small indulgence can send them on a 2+ month junk food bender!
I’ve been there, too. It’s no fun. You’ll just end up feeling lousy and guilty that you fell so far off-course.
Plus, it can seriously derail your long-term health goals.
Luckily, you can change this unhealthy pattern even if you’ve fallen victim to it in the past!
My favorite way to enjoy the holidays while still staying on track is to enjoy healthier versions of my favorite treats.
These Easy and Delicious Skinny Halloween Cocktails fall into that category.
Every recipe on this list is under 200 calories, so you can indulge without the guilt!
I still recommend you practice moderation with these drinks. Drinking too much alcohol in itself is unhealthy.
Experts recommend women drink just one drink or less per day and men stick to 2 drinks or less per day, on days when alcohol is consumed, to reduce the risk of alcohol-related harms.
Plus, if you’re trying to lose weight or keep weight off, most of these Halloween cocktails still have around 100-180 calories, which can add up really quickly if you’re enjoying more than one drink.
So stick with one or two Skinny Halloween Cocktail, then switch to a low-calorie or calorie-free drink like water, sparkling water, kombucha, or herbal tea.
Switching to a non-alcoholic beverage is also a good idea, since alcohol can dehydrate you, making it important to re-hydrate.
