If you don’t have an occasion to make dip coming up, you should probably plan something now. Even if the occasion is “it’s Thursday!” or “it’s 6:37 PM!” or whatever. It’s worth it. This skinny version of one of everyone’s favorite hot dips is every bit as cheesy, hearty, and creamy as the original and you can have a generous serving of it for just a little over 100 calories. I brought some to my boyfriend’s house for the basketball game last night and even though he knew I’d made it for my blog he asked me if it was really a light version because he couldn’t believe it. You won’t believe it either!
This is a great recipe to bring to a potluck, game day party or night in with friends because it’s super easy to prepare and it’s a huge crowd pleaser. Don’t worry if you don’t have any of those events coming up, though. There’s never a bad time for warm, cheesy bean dip! No occasion necessary.
I was really excited when CoOptions contacted me about creating an original sponsored recipe* using products featured on their healthy coupon site, EverydayHealthyValues.com. One of the things I hear a lot from people who’d like to eat healthier is that they’re worried it will be more expensive. What I discovered when I visited Everyday Healthy Values (which was formed in partnership with global health services company, Cigna, and is powered by coupons.com) is that they have coupons for a lot of the popular brands and products I already buy. I personally printed out grocery coupons from Smuckers, Yoplait, Weight Watchers, General Mills, Boca, Uncle Ben’s, Nasoya, and more. In addition to food coupons, they also feature brands like Pampers, Aleve, Advil, and One-A-Day Vitamins. They appear to change out the coupons and brands fairly frequently, so it’s a good site to bookmark and check daily so you don’t miss out on any great deals. Who wouldn’t want to spend less on groceries?
For this recipe, I was pumped to see a coupon for Nasoya products. They happen to already be my favorite brand of wonton wrappers (and y’all know I love wonton wrappers). I also used a Yoplait coupon to try out their new Greek yogurts, which I really liked and will buy again.
I’ve been meaning to make a dessert recipe using wonton wrappers for a long time now and I can’t believe it took me this long. These cinnamon wonton cups are crazy good. They’re super thin and crispy and pack a ton of cinnamon sugar flavor. I actually can’t stop thinking about all the different things I want to put in these cups (homemade apple pie filling, cannoli filling from my Chocolate Chip Cannoli Cups…the possibilities are endless). Before you try any of those though, I really recommend you try the sweet cream cheese and yogurt filling and fresh berries combination I listed below. These cups are equal parts crispy, creamy, sweet, fresh, juicy and an all-around crowd pleaser. This is truly a dessert your waistline and your wallet can feel good about!
