‘Tis again the season for planning for holiday parties just about every weekend between now and New Year’s Day (2019, already?!). There’s the outfits to plan, the host & hostess gifts to purchase, and the potluck recipes to pick.
Here, let Dallas Iron Fitness help you:
1. Holidays are for sparkles. Definitely go for the sparkles.
2. Everyone loves a nice bottle of wine.
3. These following 5 potluck recipes are so easy to make—and healthy, too! Pick one (or all of ‘em) to be your potluck party staple. Or hey, maybe just make them for a potluck party of one. We won’t judge.
Here are 5 easy and healthy potluck recipes for your next holiday party.
Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip
This recipe looks your traditional Greek yogurt dip straight in the eye and says, “I see your bet, and I raise you one,” because, HELLO, it’s avocado Greek yogurt dip! By using plain nonfat Greek yogurt, you avoid the extra loads of sugar that come with the flavored yogurt options. Combined with avocados, fresh cilantro, and a few simple seasonings, your friends at the party will be asking you all night long for the recipe. To make it even simpler for you, all it takes to make this dip is throw everything together in a blender—voila, delicious, healthy, AND easy. (You’re welcome.)
Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus
Y’all. Hummus, but with sweet potatoes. This hummus recipe looks next level, so don’t mind us if we just begin bringing this to every single party this holiday season. This is another recipe with only a few ingredients and spices and the simplest steps: just bake the potatoes, throw everything into a food processor, and make creamy sweet potato hummus magic happen!
Crock Pot Italian Turkey Meatballs
Who can say no to meatballs? And since we are cooks who like quick, we can’t say no to the fact that this Italian Turkey Meatball recipe goes in the crockpot, either. Cooked in a homemade tomato sauce, this meatball recipe is a healthier alternative to your usual cocktail meatballs that are typically drowning in a sugary jelly-based sauce.
A warning to our gluten-free babes and dudes out there, this does call for breadcrumbs. Good news, though: gluten-free bread crumbs exist! Go forth making homemade meatballs in freedom!
Strawberry Mango Salsa
This recipe comes from a blog called Damn Delicious and we can say that this seems an accurate description for this Strawberry Mango Salsa. We Texans love our salsa, and this twist on the traditional is exactly the sort of potluck recipe that will keep party guests planted firmly next to the food table dipping into this salsa over and over again.
Banana Oat Blender Muffins
Someone has to bite the bullet (or the muffin) and bring the dessert. With this Banana Oat Blender Muffins recipe, the banana is what sweetens it up—no added sugar necessary! Plus with only a few ingredients and the saving power of a blender, you’ll have this ready to go in no time! Just try not to let your innocent “taste testing” turn into eating them all before you get to the party. (We’ve all been there at least once, right?)
