Looking to update the classic childhood snack of peanut butter and celery? Well for starters, calling it a canape helps. For some slightly more mature variations read on.
- Low fat chive cream cheese. Good creamy texture of cream cheese (but with reduced calories and fat) and the chives add a bit of zing to the flavor.
- Light Laughing Cow cheese wedge. You might also know these as as Babybel, but the light cheeses are soft and spreadable and come in multiple yummy flavors.
- Hummus. You know I love hummus. It adds some iron to the crunch of the celery.
- Almond Butter. I like mine raw, salted and chunky (I did say "slightly more mature.")
Why we like it:
Celery is a staple of most kitchens, so hopefully you will have some around to experiment with. It is a great veggie - super low in calories, high in fiber and vitamin C.
