Classic deviled eggs are classic for a reason. They’re delicious! And decadent! And delicious!

But sometimes you want something a bit lighter, a bit brighter, or just a bit different than the richness of your traditional mayo-based recipe. Luckily, there are plenty of clever ways to reinvent this popular appetizer. Some use Greek yogurt, others use hummus; all are just as tasty as the original. Even better? They take 30 minutes or less to make. (We mean, really, what are you waiting for?)

Here are 3 new ways to make deviled eggs this holiday season. Serve them at your next micro-party — or just enjoy them on your own as a snack that hits all the right notes: creamy, nutritious, and savory-sweet.

1. Healthy Deviled Eggs from Sustainable Cooks

This recipe uses Greek yogurt instead of mayo for an extra dose of protein and probiotics — and really, who doesn’t need that right now? Opt for unsweetened and plain Greek yogurt to keep sugar and carbs low. And definitely check out the variations: We’re feeling the dill pickle version and the jalapeno poppers.

2. Mayo-Free Deviled Eggs from Minimalist Baker

This recipe has the creaminess you want, but with a modern twist from loads of spices and sweeteners, including turmeric, raw honey, apple cider vinegar, and cayenne. Turmeric and cayenne are excellent for adding some heat — and they may even fire up your metabolism too.

3. Healthy Deviled Eggs With Hummus from Give Recipe

This recipe is the love child of two delicious, protein-filled snacks. It’s dead-simple — just hard-boiled eggs filled with hummus and sprinkled with spices — and dead-fast: The total cook time is just 23 minutes. If you’re pressed for time, you can make this already-quick recipe even faster by using store bought hummus.
