Our family LOVES parties! Whether it be for a kid’s birthday, memorial day, or any other holiday, we love to gather over food. We bring together our favorite dishes, and enjoy time talking and munching, (and the kids run up for their own munchies and take them back to where they are playing).
Over the years, I’ve tried different recipes to bring a healthier version to the party table. Here are some of our family favorites (in addition to a couple of new ones that I will be trying out at our next party!)
Holy Moly Guacamole! by Hungry Girl. This version has PEAS in it, reducing the fat and calorie content. My teenager actually prefers this guacamole to traditional guacamole, so she’s always excited when I make this.
Peanut Butter Fruit dip from Cooking Classy. This is great for the Peanut Butter fans! It’s quick and easy and delicious with a fruit tray.
Healthy Red Velvet Cheesecake Dip by Desserts with Benefits. This is a great dip for the dessert table, and can also be used for dipping fruit!
Mozzarella Cheesesticks by Mind over Munch. Baked and uses a wonton wrapper instead of breading.
Cheeseburger Cupcakes by Emily Bites. THIS is definitely a family favorite! It also uses wonton wrappers like the mozzarella cheesesticks above, so you can make both for different flavors and variety!
Slow Cooker Buffalo Meatballs by Tablespoon. Buffalo. Chicken Meatballs. Slow Cooker. Really it’s a recipe for success!
Mac & Cheese by BeachReadyNow. We serve a LOT of kid-friendly foods, and here is a healthy version of a comfort classic!
Sparkling Strawberry Limeade by The Bold Abode. A healthy alternative to punch that doesn’t have any sugary sodas or syrups!
Chocolate Chip Cannoli Cups by Emily Bites. Warning: These are not only a delicious family favorite, but they are also EXTREMELY addicting and should only brought to parties or situations where you can share them!
