Creamstyle Corn2_horRESIZED

Heavy cream, whole milk and butter get the boot in my skinny version of this classic fall side dish. My family loves cream-style corn, so with traditional versions pushing 250 calories per serving, my skinny 115-calorie version became a fast favorite! Cream-style canned corn and skim milk keep the creaminess of the traditional dishes while knocking off more than 15 grams of fat per serving! This is also a quick-fix dish. By using a combination of canned and frozen corn, the prep time on this skinny side is less than 5 minutes!
