Hello! It’s Friday! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? We are busy with the usual fall things like football & soccer games. I’m also hoping to sneak in a few projects in there, too! ha! ;) I love fall. There’s always so much fun to be had. A few week’s ago I was shopping at Walmart, & I spotted a brand new low calorie popcorn called Skinnygirl Popcorn. Don’t you just love the name? ;) I was so excited! If you know how much I love snacking on popcorn you’ll understand my excitement. :) I’ve been looking for some snacking choices with better ingredients, & I love, love popcorn. So it’s a perfect match! In a few week’s I’ll be hosting a girls night. I wanted to come up with a yummy snack to serve. I also wanted a skinnier version (of course!), & this popcorn is perfect! Today I am excited to share this skinny pumpkin & caramel popcorn recipe that will be perfect for your next fall party. So keep reading to get the recipe. :)

popcorn with fewer calories
Skinnygirl popcorn is amazing! I bought two flavors ~ lime & salt and butter & sea salt. The lime & salt is my favorite! It gives you the indulgence of popcorn without the guilt, & it gives you so much flavor. Yum!

Annnd the best thing is Skinnygirl popcorn offers such a great taste with just 25 calories per cup popped. 25 calories!!!

  1. You had me at "pumpkin & caramel". This looks SO delicious and I love that the butter flavor provides just enough flavor to be able to reduce the fat used in your recipe. What a great alternative to the super high fat and calorie caramel popcorn snacks out there! #client

  2. Sounds and looks good :)
    Might have to make some soon :)
