Green-Beanie Meanies

Yield 8 meanies with dip


  • 10 oranges
  • Nontoxic black marker
  • 2 pounds fresh green beans; blanched until crisp-tender
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch salt

How to Make It

  1. Cut off tops of oranges; scoop out pulp. (Slice a little off the bottoms to help them stand upright.) Use black marker to draw scary faces on 8 oranges; put small bunches of green beans in orange shells for goofy hair. For a creamy dip, mix the remaining ingredients--or use ranch dressing. Serve in the remaining 2 shells.
