Dessert for breakfast? Yes, please!!

With the new Dulce de Leche flavored brand of Cheerios coming out this month it’s an absolute possibility. And I already have some great ideas on how I can plug them into some Weight Watchers Dessert Recipes!

The nutritional stats are pretty decent – each 3/4 cup serving is just 3 Points. Granted, it’s not Dulce de Leche ice cream, but hey, for just 3 Points, it’s a pretty decent substitute. I can already see myself just eating handfuls of them when my late night sweet tooth kicks in.

Sweet and crunchy is a great combination. I’ll definitely be grabbing a box or two of these Dulce de Leche Cheerios as soon as they hit my grocer’s shelves!

Dulche de Leche Cheerios

Here’s what General Mills has to say about their new caramel flavored Cheerios…

“Dulce de Leche (pronounced “DOOL say day LAY chay”) is a Spanish term for a thick caramel sauce popular in Latin America that inspired this new Cheerios flavor.”
They boast:

  • 19g of whole grain per serving which is 39% of the daily recommended amount of whole grain*
  • Saturated fat free
  • Naturally cholesterol free
  • Good source of calcium
  • Good source of vitamin D

Serving size is 3/4 cup
Each serving = 3 Points

PER SERVING: 100 calories; 1.5g fat; 22g carbohydrates; 2g protein; 2g fiber

    Skinny Cow makes Dulce de Leche Ice Cream in mini buckets.  They are only 4 points for the whole things and sooo rich that I can never eat more than half at a time.
