Strawberry Daiquiri-
Average calories: 220 to 320

This blender drink is usually made with light rum, lime juice, sugar or sugar syrup, and frozen strawberries. Strawberry schnapps or triple sec can also be added.

Lighten it up: Cut out the added sugar, strawberry schnapps, or triple sec, and limit the rum to 1 ounce. Skip any whipped cream topping. If the drink isn't sweet enough, add a packet of zero-calorie sweetener to taste.

What I love: Kicking back with a refreshing libation after a long, hard week.

What I don't: Any libation that has as many calories as the burger that's also sizzling away on my grill. Thank goodness you (and I) can actually have a drink and stay slim too. (Remember: The smaller the serving, the fewer the calories. Steer clear of any glassware that could double as a fishbowl). Here are a few of my fave low-cal concoctions, and easy ways to lighten them up even more.
