It's Valentine's Day, and we're fixing couples up left & right. THESE sweet couples are so cute, we could just eat them (tee hee)...
Quaker Peanut Butter Mini Delights + Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
PER SERVING (1 bag Mini Delights + 1.5 tbsp. Creme): 120 calories, 4g fat, 113mg sodium, 21g carbs, 1g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
These two have been eying each other across the HG kitchen ever since the new flavors of Mini Delights arrived. And when we paired 'em up, sparks flew! Rip open a pack of Mini Delights, and spread some sticky Marshmallow Creme onto half of the little multigrain Minis. Then top each one off with another Mini, and you'll have a bunch of sweet little sandwiches to chomp on. Try it out with all the other flavors of Mini Delights, too (we don't consider that cheating!).
Crum Creek Brilliantly Blended Soy Nut Mix + Yoplait Fiber One Peach Yogurt
PER SERVING (one 1-oz. packet mix + one 4-oz. yogurt container): 211 calories, 8g fat, 172mg sodium, 30g carbs, 10g fiber, 15g sugars, 13g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*
Start with a single-serving packet of Crum Creek Brilliantly Blended Soy Nut Mix -- lightly salted soy nuts, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, toasty pumpkin seeds, and plump raisins. Stir that into your F1 yogurt. The result will be a crazy combo of salty, sweet, crunchy, and creamy. Mmmmmm! It makes an awesome b-fast, mini-meal, or super-snack. HG Tip: For a version of this V-Day inspired duo with a PointsPlus® value of 4*, pour just half a packet of the mix into your yogurt (that combo clocks in with 146 calories and 4g fat). Perfect!
Newman's Own Lite Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing + Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw
PER SERVING (2 tbsp. dressing + 3 oz. slaw): 60 calories, 1.5g fat, 415mg sodium, 10g carbs, 3g fiber, 6g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
This sweet 'n sassy slaw ROCKS our socks! Just toss a 12-oz. package of the slaw with half a cup of the dressing. Then give the two some alone time in the fridge (the longer this stuff marinates, the better it'll taste!). Help yourself to a heaping portion (1/4th the total amount) and enjoy! And feel free to share the love with some friends.
Fiber One Caramel Delight Cereal + Gerber Apple Mini Fruits
PER SERVING (1/2 cup cereal + 1/3 cup Mini Fruits): 124 calories, 1.5g fat, 165mg sodium, 28.5g carbs, 5.75g fiber, 12g sugars, 1.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
It was love at first bite when we discovered Fiber One's new Caramel Delight cereal (it tastes a lot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!). But it's slightly too desserty to swim solo in our breakfast bowl on a regular basis. So we introduced the stuff to some Gerber Mini Fruits, and a fantastic couple was born! To recreate the magic in your own kitchen, just toss together half a cup of the cereal with a third of a cup of Mini Fruits, and you'll have a sweet cereal snack mix packed with fiber and apple-y goodness. This feisty couple is definitely a new fave. Sometimes we even cover this twosome with half a cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze for a fruity cereal bowl with just 144 calories and a PointsPlus® value of 4*. Woohoo!
CHEW ON THIS: Today, February 14th, is Valentine's Day. Remember, just because someone gives you a box of chocolate doesn't mean you have to eat it ALL!
