Dietitian Tip

By using fat-free cream cheese instead of full-fat cream cheese, you save about 70 calories and 10 grams of fat — most of which is saturated fat — in each serving.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts
  • 4 medium or 8 small apples, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Directions

Place the cream cheese on the counter to allow it to soften, about 5 minutes.

To make the dip, combine brown sugar, vanilla and cream cheese in a small bowl. Mix until smooth. Stir in chopped peanuts.

Place sliced apples in another bowl. Drizzle orange juice over the apples to prevent browning. Serve the sliced apples with the dip.
