St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and many of us are going to get in on the celebration. Fitness Motivator Terri Allen mixes up some healthy options to enjoy this weekend or any other. By swapping out ingredients like sodas, juices and syrups you can cut your calories and sugar in half! Watch for more tricks.

Tropical Vodka Spritzer

Slice your kiwi in half. Squeeze the juice of one half into a glass. Do the same with your lime wedge. Add the sparkling water, vodka, and coconut water powder.  Still until powder de solves.
