Weight Watchers 5 Carrot Cake Slices

I know some people like to kid themselves that eating carrot cake is healthy, simply because it has a vegetable in it. But in reality, we know that carrot cake is still a cake and more than likely it's loaded with calories we'd rather not think about.

For example, a slice of Starbucks carrot cake contains around 560 calories - enough to take place of a main meal.

If you're yearning for a bit of carrot cake, you could always tuck into a Weight Watchers Carrot Cake Slice for just 84 calories and 0.2g of fat. They are high in sugar but the calorie count is kept down due to the size of the portions, about 3cm x 7cm (1 ¼ x 3 in) and lack of fat. They are also low in salt.

Each pack holds five deliciously moist slices of carrot cake which are topped with a smooth layer of sweet yogurt icing. Each cake is worth 2 Weight Watchers ProPoints.

These carrot cakes are very tasty with a rich, moist texture and generous amounts of grated carrot which are visible to see. The icing is very sticky and it’s difficult to avoid handling them without getting icing on your fingers. Also, when opening them, take care to peel off the inner wrapper, otherwise the icing comes off with it!

You can find Weight Watchers 5 Carrot Cake slices in many supermarkets.

Nutritional Information: Per cake slice: 84 calories, 0.7g protein, 19.7g carbohydrates, 13.2g sugars, 0.2g fat, 0.1g saturates, 0.2g fibre, <0.1g salt. 2 ProPoints.
