Banana Cream Cake Recipe – 6 Points +

Banana Cream Cake

After indulging in this cake at a recent party at a friend of mine’s house, I asked for the original recipe, which was from Eating Well, and made a few alterations to make it a bit more Weight Watchers friendly. Plus, I wanted to make it easier….their original banana cream layer cake recipe calls for making your own bavarian cream filling, but I just wasn’t a fan of the flavor of the cream or the hassle of preparing it. But by using Nonfat Cool Whip mixed with fat free vanilla pudding instead, I got a better flavor, it was much easier, and it lowered the fat and calorie count – a LOT. If you aren’t a fan of Cool Whip, you can use Fat Free Reddi Whip too (which I LOVE), but it does get runny kind of fast, so prepare for that. Though it tastes fantastic. So if you want a great summer dessert recipe that will help you stay on track with your Weight Watchers goals, this Banana Cream Cake is a must try. With only 6 Points + per slice, you can have your cake and eat it too!

If you are looking for a super yummy, low calorie version of a homemade carrot cake recipe, then you came to the right place! Considering that traditional carrot cakes can average 12-15 weight watchers points per serving, this diet friendly carrot cake recipe is a fabulous bargain at just a 4 Point Total per serving. And then there’s the not so average, Cheesecake Factory’s Carrot Cake Recipe. It has approximately: 1,510 calories, 84g fat, 600mg sodium, 179g carbs, 6g fiber, 129g sugars, 18g protein = 36 Weight Watchers Points!!!! CRAZY. I have always been a fan of carrot cakes with that rich, gooey, cream cheese frosting, but being a Weight Watcher pretty much kept me away from all my favorite dessert recipes. But after some trial and error and alterations with traditional carrot cakes recipes, I was able to create a version that is much lower in points and yet still tastes AMAZING. And though this is not an official one of weight watchers dessert recipes, it’s a great, low calorie dessert that will satisfy the carrot cake lover in everyone.

Red Velvet Cake Recipe – 4 Point Value

Red Velvet Cake Recipe

Red Velvet Cake and Red Velvet Cupcakes are my, hands down, absolute favorite desserts. I ADORE them. But the typical Red Velvet Cake Recipes are full of fat, calories and of course, extra Points. So when I came across this Weight Watchers Recipe for it, I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to try it! When I read through the recipe, I was concerned about the icing because I REALLY like a thick buttercream, cream cheesy icing on my red velvet, but it turned out to taste pretty darn good! The icing is definitely lighter and fluffier than I’m used to, but it still tastes fantastic, and it’s a fair compromise for just 4 Weight Watchers Points per serving. This is the perfect low calorie dessert recipe to to take to any party or dinner and of course, it’s a great treat to make at home as well! When I made this recipe, I made 15 Red Velvet Cupcakes from the mix, so that I had my portions already divided out. If you love Red Velvet Cake, you’ve gotta give this Weight Watchers Red Velvet Cake Recipe a try and satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt!
