Hungry Girl Today: 7.10.14
Combining two HG favorites to make one spectacular creation is something we love to do. Check out our newest hot couples! They're all-natural and so delicious...
Greek Yogurt + Mashed Avocado = Creamy Guac Dip
1/2 of recipe (about 3 tbsp.): 63 calories, 4g fat, 160mg sodium, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 1.5g sugars, 3.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
A no-guilt guacamole fix has never been so easy... Combine 1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt with 2 oz. (about 1/4 cup) mashed avocado. Mix until smooth and uniform. Season with 1/8 tsp. each salt, garlic powder, and chili powder. (HG guideline: Spices don't count toward the two-ingredient tally.) Enjoy!
Portabella Mushrooms + Hummus = Humm-azing 'Bellas
1/2 of recipe (1 stuffed mushroom): 92 calories, 4g fat, 132mg sodium, 10.5g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Super-yummy snack alert! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place 2 portabella mushroom caps, rounded sides down, on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake until softened, about 12 minutes. Blot away excess moisture and let cool, about 20 minutes. Spread each one with 2 tbsp. natural hummus, and eat!
Salsa Verde + Greek Yogurt = Tangy Salad Dressing
Entire recipe (about 1/4 cup): 28 calories, <0.5g fat, 218mg sodium, 3.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 2g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Too easy... Just mix 2 tbsp. natural salsa verde (a.k.a. green salsa) with 2 tbsp. fat-free plain Greek yogurt. The result is creamy, zesty, and perfect over a big bowl of mixed greens! Use a half cup of each ingredient if you want to make a 4-serving batch. Salad deliciousness for days...
Watermelon + Babybel = Fruity Cheese Skewers
1/2 of recipe (2 skewers): 109 calories, 4.5g fat, 241mg sodium, 8.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 9.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Talk about a match made in snack heaven! Start with 3 pieces of Mini Babybel Light and 16 one-inch cubes of watermelon (about 1 1/2 cups). Cut each piece of cheese into 4 wedges. Then thread the following onto 1 skewer: watermelon cube, cheese wedge, watermelon cube, cheese wedge, watermelon cube, cheese wedge, watermelon cube. Repeat with three more skewers. Devour. (Don't choke on the sticks!)
HG FYI: The PointsPlus® values for the above recipes were calculated using the recipe method, which counts the carbs, protein, etc., from fruit and veggies -- even though fruit and most veggies have a value of 0. If you prefer, calculate the values for these couples by adding up the individual ingredient values!
