Shrimp Cocktail Shooters

As dietitians one of the most common questions we get is about appetizers. People realize that many appetizers contain a lot of calories and fat (sometimes more fat and calories than an entire entrée!) but they want to know if there actually are any good options to choose. We’re always happy to be able to recommend shrimp cocktail since it tends to be a crowd pleaser. If you’re looking for a more modern take on the classic shrimp cocktail, you’ve got to try this Shrimp Cocktail Shooter. It is made using Dannon® Oikos® Plain Greek Nonfat Yogurt and it’s divine!
