This time of year is so treat heavy. I try to make better choices through the week. One thing I have really been trying to do is to take our family favorites & change them up a bit to make them in skinny versions. This way we can still enjoy the things we love- but have to spend far less time working it all off at the gym. Life is so crazy busy these days & so I really love products that make my life easier & are convenient without sacrifice. It seems most of the time if I want fast & easy it comes with a high calorie price. So I created this Skinny Caramel Popcorn for my family so we don’t have to feel like we are compromising. Let me tell you – it satisfies every craving & doesn’t taste skinny – which is why I love this Low Calorie Popcorn. Looking for Easy Family Dinner Ideas?
On my weekly shopping trip to Walmart I found this Skinnygirl Popcorn.
Any snacks that say skinny always grab my attention. So I had to buy it.
Here’s what we start with – Skinnygirl Popcorn in butter flavor. It also comes in Lime – which would be a tasty twist. Then we have raw honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract & yogurt covered raisins. I also added some trail mix – but it was last minute -so it didn’t make the shot.
We make our “caramel” first because it has to cool a bit & thicken up before pouring over the popcorn.
This only takes a minute or two to melt the honey & coconut oil together.
Pop your popcorn & add your mix ins while you are waiting for your caramel to cool.
I love making #SkinnygirlSnacks with the help of #CollectiveBias.
Mix it altogether – enjoy!! So simple- only takes a couple minutes.
My poor daughter – since she has braces she can’t enjoy this with the rest of us.
She is sure going to be happy when she can try this.
Skinnygirl popcorn offers great taste with just 25 calories per cup popped.
What makes the Skinnygirl products unique?
Every Skinnygirl product offers at least a 20% calorie savings vs. it’s competitors
No artificial flavors – No artificial colors – No artificial sweeteners (e.g. aspartame, sucralose) – No high fructose corn syrup
You know how I feel about all those things & how I have been working hard to eliminate those from our family’s diet as much as I can. So I was absolutely thrilled when I read this about Skinnygirl Popcorn.
The mix ins are great too. With regular caramel popcorn I would mix in some chocolate covered candy or marshmallows – or both. I have been known to mix in all sorts of things – but you know, this was just as good & I didn’t feel like I was missing out on any of that.
