Skinny Poolside Dip

I am a huge snacker, but who isn't, right? I would much rather eat dips and appetizers instead of a big meal.  I am also trying to lose the baby weight so eating fatty dips and weight loss don't exactly go hand in hand!  I feel that even though you are trying to eat healthy and lose weight, you still have to stay true to yourself and what you like or your efforts are going to fail miserably.  I decided to whip up a refreshingly yummy dip perfect for the Summer which is extremely tasty and very low in fat. 

{What You Need}
8 oz block of low fat cream cheese.  Softened.
1 can of yellow corn.  Drained.
1 Red Pepper.  Chopped.
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese.
1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning.

{How You Make It}
Mix cream cheese, shredded cheddar, red pepper, corn and ranch seasoning in a bowl.
Mix thoroughly and serve with Reduced Fat Triscuits.

Enjoy poolside!!

  12. That looks so good... I'm usually too lazy and end up munching nuts by the poolside... This is tempting me to get off my duff, though!
