Former ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star, Bethenny Frankel, launched Skinnygirl as a way for women to indulge on the weekends without feeling guilty about putting on pounds.

Until this week, Skinnygirl focused exclusively on alcoholic drinks including wine, vodkas, margaritas, and ready-to-serve cocktails, but now Frankel’s brand is planning on infiltrating your grocery aisle… I mean, what kind of lady doesn’t serve dips at her cocktail party, right?

Skinnygirl now offers low calorie hummus, dips, and salsas. The hummus in question is supposed to be the star of the show, made with a touch of Greek yogurt, “which provides a light, delicious, low-calorie twist on a traditional party favorite,” according to a press release.

The hummus flavors will include Classic, Roasted Garlic, Roasted Red Pepper, and Cilantro Jalapeno.

In addition to the hummus, Skinnygirl is also rolling out two dips (Ranch and French Onion) and salsas (Black Bean and Corn, Mango, traditional mild, medium, and hot).

The new Skinnygirl products will be available at select grocery stores (and Walmart) nationwide.
