I’ve been working with Weight Watchers on testing some of their newest dessert recipes which utilize some of their pre-packaged Weight Watchers sweet baked goods. Since I’ve been running and losing weight but still have a massive sweet tooth, having desserts that don’t tip the scale in the wrong direction is an important focus of mine.
The first recipe, and also my favorite, was their Rocky Road Ice Cream Pies (pictured above). This tasty treat has big chunks of fudgy Weight Watchers brownies, chocolate ice cream, marshmallows and slivered almonds all in one perfect portioned dessert cup. At 5 PointsPlus® per serving, this is a refreshing dessert that allows me to give into my chocolate cravings without feeling any guilt!
Up next is the Chocolate Banana Quesadillas. This dessert uses one Weight Watchers Chocolate Crème Cake in a creative way to make a completely different tasting treat. Sandwiched in between a cinnamon sugar quesadilla you’ll find sliced bananas and bite sized pieces of Chocolate Creme Cake. If you like chocolate dipped bananas (like I do) you’ll love the flavors in this dessert recipe. Sweet, filling and delicious – plus incredibly fast to put together – I’ll be making this 5 PointsPlus® per serving dessert for an afternoon snack often!
Working with Weight Watchers in this way is helping me open my eyes to how I can use their sweet baked goods in other ways. I can’t wait to dig around in my pantry to see what else I can come up with!
