Lightened-Up Funfetti Cake Batter Dip + Family Movie Night

Hi, friends!  I have a recipe and a fun, family activity to share with you today.  Double whammy!  First, check out this Lightened-Up Funfetti Cake Batter Dip…it’s packed with protein (thanks to Greek yogurt), but it tastes like you’re licking a bowl of cake batter!

Lightened Up Funfetti Cake Batter Dip

Served with graham crackers, animal crackers, or fruit slices, this dip would be the perfect addition to a kid’s birthday party, or a great way to welcome your children home for snack after a day at school.  But in this house, we choose to eat it for dinner!  That’s right…dinner.  :)

We have a nice little tradition that we call Family Movie Night.  About once a week (usually on a Friday or Saturday evening), the boys get an early bath, put on their pajamas, and spread out some blankets on the living room floor.  We rent a family-friendly movie and everyone sits on the floor to eat our dinner (like a picnic!).  The kids LOVE that I allow them to eat somewhere other than the kitchen table, and Keith and I love the relaxed family downtime.


As you can see from the photos I took here, we often have pizza for dinner on a movie night.  It’s the perfect meal because we don’t need utensils and the crumbs are minimal.  On other evenings, I serve a movie night dinner that is made up of snack-type finger foods.  These are often typical party appetizers that the boys can munch on while they watch the show.  Some favorites are Mini Pigs in a Blanket (using crescent rolls and lil’ smokies), Queso Dip and Chips, carrots and ranch dip, snack mixes, fruit kabobs with yogurt dip, and this Lightened-Up Funfetti Cake Batter Dip.


A fun way to spend an evening inside together!


Even Spence participates in the fun from the comfort of his swing or Bumbo seat!

    combat and magic arrangement’. Small rides were added in the
