I’m teaming up with SkinnyPop Popcorn to make your popcorn really POP with three different savory three ingredient seasonings!

Who doesn’t love sitting down to a big bowl of popcorn?  As someone who has been eating healthier this year, it’s so important that I have healthy snacks to kick those midday cravings. That’s why I love keeping SkinnyPop Popcorn on hand!  One cup of their Sea Salt & Pepper popcorn (my current favorite out of their six flavors) is only 39 calories!

As an avid food blogger, I always have a ton of different ingredients on hand for when recipe inspiration strikes.  So when SkinnyPop Popcorn asked me to share a three ingredient popcorn seasoning with my readers, I decided to kick things up a notch.  Today I’ll be sharing three ingredient popcorn seasoning three different ways!

The first seasoning I wanted to create was just so easy to come up with! You all know by now that pizza is a huge deal in my family.  So I took inspired from everyone’s favorite savory pie to make a pizza popcorn seasoning.  

I thought of the popcorn as the crust.  Then, I mixed up a seasoning blend of grated Parmesan cheese, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil from my garden.  The combination is popcorn perfection and definitely satisfies the craving for a hot slice of pizza!

I started thinking about other seasonings that I could make with some of the ingredients I had on hand. There was a fresh cilantro sitting by my window in the kitchen and limes in the fridge to use.  So I zested a small lime and added chopped cilantro and a little sea salt.  This seasoning gives popcorn a fresh, citrus taste that’s perfect for summer!

I love cheesy popcorn!  Since nutritional yeast tastes very much like cheese, I used it as the base for a spicy cheese seasoning.  This seasoning also has smokey paprika and cayenne pepper to give it a serious kick of flavor!

Get the recipes for all three of these seasonings below!

  • 1/2 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • Zest of 1 small lime
  • 1/2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper, or more as desired

These seasoning measurements are based off of one cup of SkinnyPop Popcorn.  Mix each seasoning blend in a small bowl.  Then, toss with popcorn in a medium bowl.  Adjust measurements, as needed.


What’s your favorite popcorn seasoning?
