2-Ingredient Trader Joe's Hacks: Healthy Dips, Snacks, Desserts & More

Nov 10 2021
After some delicious experiments with Trader Joe's products that we love, we came up with four brand new pairings! Check out the latest from the Hungryland kitchen…

WW Points Value Update

As you may know, WW recently unveiled a new program: PersonalPoints™. In this week’s emails, we will continue to list the SmartPoints® values* in addition to the new PersonalPoints™ values*. Beginning next week, we will calculate and provide only the PersonalPoints™ values* in accordance with the new program. You can learn more about the new program at ww.com!

Mini Mango Fizz Float

Entire recipe: 130 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat. fat), 0mg sodium, 13.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 11g sugars, <0.5g protein — SmartPoints® value 7*

WW PersonalPoints™ value 6*

Dessert meets after-dinner cocktail! Pour 4 oz. Secco Vino Frizzante Sparkling Wine into a small glass. Top with 1/4 cup Mango Sorbet. Eat with a spoon, or let the sorbet melt as you sip. Cool, a little fancy, and soooo much fun to enjoy. (Special thanks to our pal Neetu for this and other great TJs tips!) 

Spicy Garlic-Herb Hummus

Entire recipe: 65 calories, 4g total fat (0g sat. fat), 112mg sodium, 5.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 1g sugars, 2g protein — SmartPoints® value 1*

WW PersonalPoints™ value 1*

Boost that hummus! (It’s already good, but it can be great.) In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp. Roasted Garlic Hummus with 1 tsp. Zhoug Sauce. That herby sauce is hotter than it looks — a little goes a long way! Serve with some baby carrots or cucumber slices for dipping. YUM.

EZ Creamy Steel Cut Oats

Entire recipe: 161 calories, 3.5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 2mg sodium, 18g carbs, 4g fiber, 2g sugars, 5g protein — SmartPoints® value 4*

WW PersonalPoints™ value 1–5*

Here's how we like our steel-cut oatmeal… Extra creamy! Cook 1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats as directed on package. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in 2 tbsp. Vanilla Coconut Milk Beverage. Sweeten to taste. (We like adding natural sugar-free pancake syrup and a dash of cinnamon!) This cereal tastes terrific hot, but you can also make it ahead and eat it cold á la rice pudding the next morning.

Pineapple Cauli'peño Salsa

Entire recipe: 45 calories, 3.5g total fat (2g sat. fat), 160mg sodium, 2.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 1.5g sugars, 1g protein — SmartPoints® value 2*

WW PersonalPoints™ value 2*

Sometimes mixing together two of your favorite sauces results in one magnificent super-sauce. In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. Cauliflower Jalapeño Dip and 2 tsp. Pineapple Salsa. Use it as a topping for your protein of choice — try spooning this combo onto Boca Burgers.

Chew on this:
