Green-Beanie Meanies

Prep time: About 30 Minutes
Cook time:
Serves: 8 meanies with dip

10 oranges
Nontoxic black marker
2 lbs fresh green beans, blanched until crisp-tender
1 Tbs orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tsp orange zest
1 tsp sugar
Pinch cinnamon
Pinch salt

Cut off tops of oranges; scoop out pulp. (Slice a little off the bottoms to help them stand upright.) Use black marker to draw scary faces on 8 oranges; put small bunches of green beans in orange shells for goofy hair. For a creamy dip, mix the remaining ingredients — or use ranch dressing. Serve in the two remaining shells.
