Whipped Cream Cheese Gets a Twist

Weight Watchers Cheese has recently added two delicious new varieties to its lineup of whipped cream cheeses: Chocolate and Chocolate Raspberry. The new whipped cream cheese flavors are perfect for putting to use in inventive yet simple recipes that push whipped cream cheese’s repertoire beyond the typical bagel. Now, Weight Watchers has made up a few recipes but I tried one of my own for this product.

I found my new favorite frosting. Ok, so maybe it’s not really frosting so much as it is a whipped chocolate cream cheese spread, however it makes the most amazing frosting!! Weight Watchers has come up with new reduced fat Whipped Chocolate and Whipped Chocolate Raspberry cream cheese spreads that are out of this world. Not only do they have 33% less fat than whipped cream cheese spreads, they are also only 60 calories per serving and have 2g of fiber per serving. When I first opened these spreads, I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with them, but after taste testing with a spoon I decided that if nothing else I would just eat it with a spoon!! That’s how delicious these cream cheese spreads are to eat! Alright, maybe that wasn’t the best decision on how to eat it, so I opted to try it as a frosting. I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookie cupcakes (they are amazing) that uses a cream cheese frosting. It is a match made in heaven!! I no longer need to make my own cream cheese frosting for anything-Weight Watchers Whipped Chocolate cream cheese spread is my new favorite. I can’t wait to try it on a chocolate chip bagel for breakfast or dip pretzels in it for a low fat snack!

Weight Watchers has done it again-another deliciously successful product!

Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

Now, nobody in my house has to be gluten free. However, I do like to find things that will help us become more healthy. Gluten tends to be hard for your body to digest which causes the feeling of tiredness when you are over-full. When you avoid gluten, that excess energy can be diverted elsewhere rather than your digestive track. That being said — I tried a few of Udi‘s products on my family.

browniesDark Chocolate Brownie Bites was a huge favorite in my house. My kids ate these in less than 12 hours. They are decadently rich and perfectly satisfying. Indulgent dark chocolate will satisfy all of your sweet-tooth cravings, and wrap you in gluten free joy. Sure to be a hit with everyone, you won’t be able to resist these moist, fudgy bites of brownie! I couldn’t believe these were gluten free — they were sooo good!

muffinsHarvest Crunch Muffins were another hit in my house. These are great because not only are they gluten free, but they are also dairy, soy, and nut free. Madison ate these for breakfast for a week! They are filled with healthy ingredients rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals (3g protein, 4g fiber per muffin).

bagelsThe Mighty Bagel is filled with healthy ingredients that are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals (8g protein, 3g fiber per bagel). These bagels will give you the boost you need to get your morning off to the right start. This is another morning favorite of Madison’s.

bunsGrilling in the backyard is now delicious, nutritious and gluten free with these Whole Grain Hamburger Buns. Loaded with 6 grams of fiber, these hamburger buns come fully equipped with the right nutrients to accompany a savory sandwich or classic burger. This is one of my favorite products of theirs!

white breadThe bread that started it all is now a customer favorite. Their signature light and fluffy white sandwich bread is made with all natural ingredients without added fillers. Reward yourself during your next meal and enjoy the luxury of bread again. This makes great sandwich bread too!

cookiesRich chocolate chips and fresh baked cookie dough make this classic an instant hit. These Chocolate Chip Cookies didn’t last 24 hours in my house. Everybody loved them and couldn’t believe they were gluten free. They were so good.

If you are looking for great gluten free products, you have to check out Udi’s. They have great products with great taste. I highly recommend them!
