Skinny Pop is a healthy popcorn that helps to make snacking guilt free. It contains only 39 calories per cup which is quite low. It is also very tasty. My family and I opened a bag and really liked it. It is slightly salty, slightly buttery and filling. I like to eat it plain and also created a simple, tasty recipe which I will share below.
Popcorn is a good choice for a snack because it is full of fiber and whole grains. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends making half of your grains whole grains and this popcorn helps to get some of your daily needs in. I love that the serving size is much larger than any other snack. The serving size for Skinny Pop is 4 cups for only 155 calories!
Skinny Pop Popcorn Balls
1 tablespoon light margarine (I used Smart Balance light)
10 full sized marshmellows
6 cups Skinny Pop popcorn
Directions:1. Microwave marshmellows with margarine for one minute.
2. Stir popcorn into marshmellow mixture.
3. Form into tennis-sized balls.
These are not extremely healthy but are a low calorie sweet and salty treat. I made this for my family last weekend and they loved them.
