*First and foremost are the latkes:
-They do not have to made with white potatoes alone - try mixing in or switching completely to sweet potatoes, parsnips, red beets, apples, carrots, and more. Adding these vegetables or fruits will add not only color, but extra nutrients too.
-You do not have to deep fry latkes. Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray. Once hot, add the latkes. Spray them again on top, so both sides gets crispy. Then finish them off in the oven to desired crispiness, without all that extra oil fat and calories.
-Use applesauce or , low fat sour cream, or fat free greek yogurt as your topping.
1 tablespoon of applesauce = 7 calories, 0 fat
1 tablespoon of fat free greek yogurt, plain = 17 calories, 0 fat
1 tablespoon of low fat sour cream = 20 calories, ~1 gram fat
1 tablespoon of regular sour cream = 30 calories, 2.5 grams fat
-If you are not the maker of the latkes, have one, enjoy every bit with a low calorie topping
