And we chose I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® products for making the Shrimp Primavera dish because both the spray and the spread have such delicious buttery tastes. I love that the spread adds that perfect butter taste to the shrimp without the calories (it’s 0 calories per serving!) and I love the tub because it has simple ingredients from plant-based oils, which are good fats and an excellent source of omega-3ALA.
