Healthy Corn on the Cob


Grilling out is a must during the summer months and corn on the cob is a typical go-to. Unfortunately, most people cover it with butter and salt. This is a healthy alternative everyone will love, without all of the fat and salt! It has a nice zing with a little bit of spice and lime juice.

  • All you have to do is wash your corn and place it in some aluminum foil.
  • Next, squeeze juice from 2 limes over the corn. (I used 2 limes for 4 ears of corn)
  • Sprinkle cayenne pepper over each ear of corn.
  • I also rubbed some minced garlic on each piece.
  • Wrap aluminum foil tightly around corn and grill for about 25 minutes.
  • I added fresh ground black pepper to mine after it was cooked.

This recipe tastes amazing and is great for a summer side dish. Hope you love it!

  1. We love corn on the cob on the grill. Thank you for sharing a healthy alternative. 🙂

  2. I’ve been smothering my corn in Earth Balance and salt… it’s honestly pretty much the only time I use my Earth Balance but I think I’ll have to try the lime and spices idea! Thanks 🙂

  3. These corns taste great even when you boil them 🙂

  4. Everyone love corn! Except me! It is one of the only things I don’t like to eat!

  5. Awesome recipe, I just made it last night. I also added some minced garlic and onion to the mix and it turned out perfect! (Admitted garlic addict)
    Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Thanks for this healthy recipe! I don’t usually put anything on my corn since I don’t eat butter, so this will taste great!
