PER SERVING (1/2 cup French Chocolate ice cream with 4 tbsp. whipped topping): 100 calories, ~1g fat, 55mg sodium, 24g carbs, 4g fiber, 15g sugars, 3g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
Both of these crazy-creamy kids are fat-free and delicious. Were these two meant to be, or what?! Any time chocolate ice cream and a double portion of whipped cream come together, it's a VERY good thing. And the fact that this combo can be enjoyed for a mere 100 calories makes it that much more exciting.
Heads up vanilla-lovers: The vanilla version of this fat-free ice cream also makes a cute (and delicious!) 100-calorie couple with the Reddi-wip.
2. Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt + Sugar-Free Maple Syrup
PER SERVING (One 5.3-oz. container of yogurt with 20 calories' worth of syrup): 100 calories, 0g fat, 139mg sodium, 13g carbs, 0g fiber, 6g sugars, 13g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
Greek yogurt is AMAZING, and if you haven't given it a whirl, now is SO the time! Fage Total 0% (the creamiest fat-free Greek yogurt in the universe) has been spotted cozying up to sugar-free maple syrup, and we totally support this couple (and they make a lot more sense than Tom & Katie). There are lots of sugar-free syrups out there with sweet, rich, maple flavor and only 10 - 35 calories per quarter-cup. And they go perfectly with the slightly tart taste of Greek yogurt. If you're not a fan of maple, no worries -- Fage is fickle. When it comes to 100-calorie couples, this yogurt's also been linked to blueberries (1/4 cup), freeze-dried fruit like Gerber Mini Fruits (a little less than 1/4 cup), Better'n Peanut Butter (a little less than 1/2 tbsp.), and Smucker's Sugar Free Preserves (those two even made one of our previous Hot Couples lists!).
PER SERVING (1 pudding snack with 1/2 cup pumpkin): 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 186mg sodium, 24g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 4g sugars, 3g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
Ready for the most decadent, super-simple, and delicious fall dessert? Simply combine the contents of your pudding snack with a half-cup of the orange stuff. Mix well and, if you like, add a little Splenda and/or pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon and nutmeg). We promise, this treat is good enough to serve to guests who don't believe in guilt-free grub. Mmmmm!
PER SERVING (1 Original ready-to-eat bar with 1 tbsp. preserves): 100 calories, 2.5g fat, 105mg sodium, 22g carbs, 0g fiber, 8g sugars, <1g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
Here's an unlikely couple. Did you ever think of taking a crunchy Rice Krispies Treat and plopping a heap of sugar-free preserves on top? Neither did we, until one day we were craving something decadent and fruity at the HG HQ. We got a little creative and set these two up on a blind date -- and boy did they hit it off! Try it for yourself and see -- they're a fantastic team. FYI, Smucker's SF Preserves come in tons of fabulous flavors (try this out with others, too!), and they're available sweetened with either Splenda OR NutraSweet.
5. Fuji Apple Slices + T. Marzetti Light Caramel Apple Dip
PER SERVING (generous 3/4 cup apple slices with 1 tbsp. caramel dip): 100 calories, 1g fat, 39mg sodium, 26g carbs, 2g fiber, 17g sugars, 0.5g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
Apples and caramel have had a "thing" for each other FOREVER. They're pretty much meant to be. So this couple shouldn't exactly come as a surprise to you. Sure you can buy this EXACT pair at McDonald's for similar stats, but it's REALLY fun to get these guys together in your own kitchen! Plus Mickey D's peels their apples, so you miss out on some of the fiber our pair packs in. Slice a small apple (and we mean one that's about 4 oz.) and let the dipping begin! OR drizzle that caramel all over your apple slices for some sticky sweet fun! Pssst... Look for T. Marzetti's stuff in the produce section of the supermarket, and click here to find out which stores near you stock the dip.
CHEW ON THIS: Today, September 27th, is National Corned Beef Hash Day. We'll probably skip the celebration this year. No offense, CBH.
