Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo With Greek Yogurt & Coconut Oil #SundaySupper


Creamy skinny Fettuccine Alfredo with Greek yogurt & coconut oil makes a high protein calcium packed dish! It tastes so creamy and rich I can’t believe it’s actually a healthy Fettuccine Alfredo!  My Sunday Supper team is going skinny this week!!  I love that!  Sssh don’t tell my family, but I love to skinnify dishes and most times they turn out great! My husband compensates by making sure my kids get their share of non skinnied dishes by buying the kids donuts and other foods once in a while, so we are quite balanced I should think. The nice thing about making a dish healthier is that it becomes a guilt free dish. I have wanted to make a skinny Fettuccine Alfredo sauce ever since my friend Cari mentioned that she makes one with Greek yogurt. I love Greek yogurt and use it a lot in my dishes & desserts. The idea of a creamy sauce that is actually guilt free grabbed my attention.  We all get the craving for something rich and creamy right? If that dish becomes a little skinnier I can happily eat it!  I swapped the cream for Chobani Greek yogurt, swapped the butter for coconut oil ( I am a huge fan of coconut oil which I consider a skinny fat ) added some fresh herbs and garlic and behold a creamy Fettuccine Alfredo was born that even my fussy youngest ate 2 bowls of. The fact that I used whole grain fettuccine only made it healthier dish & packed fiber into it. Check out my dish and don’t stop here. My Sunday supper team had come up with a great line up of skinny dishes that are fabulous!! Hope you can visit as many blogs as possible and grab some skinny recipes!



Nutrition Wise!

Greek yogurt is a great source of quality protein, calcium and probiotics. It actually has more calcium then regular yogurt and milk. Low fat cheese is also a great source of protein, especially for vegetarians. Wholegrain pasta adds a nice healthy dose of fiber to this dish. Just to compare my Fettuccine Alfredo has only 270 calories/ serving and 10 Gms of fat vs. regular Fettuccine Alfredo which has 417 calories and 17 Gms of fat.  My healthy version also boasts a whopping 20 Gms of protein and 8 Gms of fiber / serving vs. 16 Gms of protein and 2 Gms of fiber in regular Fettuccine Alfredo. Need I say any more?
