I've heard of Walden Farms but never really paid attention to it mostly because when I saw it in the grocery store it was rather pricey.
Last week at our WW meetings, one of our struggling returnees stated that she was having a hard time because she had to give up all her favorite foods. We advised that you didn't, but you do need to make some healthier choices or finds something new to eat. Sometimes she said she just wanted a banana split.
This got me to thinking....how can I make a banana split point worthy? It was rather easy!
First you start with a banana! That's 0 points, so we're off to a good start. Ice cream was the next step.....you could use frozen cool whip (as I did with my brownie a few posts back) but I decided on Halo ice cream. There are lots of low point options in this area and you just have to pick what you like; in my case I chose the Halo Birthday Cake - I added 3/4 cups to my split for 4 points. Now it was time for topping! That's where Walden Farms came in. I chose their Caramel syrup:
This stuff is AWESOME and 1 tbsp is 0 pts! It's not overly thick, so one tablespoon is plenty. (You can actually use a lot of this for 0 pts). Along with it I got this:
What about toppings? I added blueberries (0 pts) and 3 marachino cherries (1 pts) and got a total of 5 pts for a banana split!!
And it tasted WONDERFUL!!! So see........ you can have a banana split on Weight Watchers!
You should check out the Walden Farms website. Don't rely on their store locator as it says no store within a 20 mile radius of where I'm at has their products and that wasn't true, lol! They have all types of products to help you with your journey. Pricey? Yes, but sometimes you get what you pay for.
