Most of us will be consuming more calories than we should on this food-laden holiday, but if there is a way to shave off a few unnecessary calories without sacrificing flavor I am all about it! After all, the holiday season has just begun and there are many more parties and celebrations to look good for, Haha!
The Slim and Sparkling™ Orange Mango Pumpkin Kiss is made with Orange Mango Sparkling ICE which has ZERO calories, sugar, or carbs. VOGA’s Festive Fall Sangria is made with VOGA Merlot, fresh fruits, and seasonal spices.
With Sparkling ICE it is “Perfectly Possible”™ to enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner and a yummy cocktail too – without the extra calories! This cocktail has a grand total of 115 calories! And VOGA’s Sangria weighs in at approximately 150 calories per serving. Compared to almost 350 calories that are in a single glass of eggnog, the choice is clear…..Have a slice of pie, or an extra cocktail, instead.
