WW Points (new system): 0 points

Weight Watchers’ followers, please note this disclaimer from the Weight Watchers’ website: Officially, the PointsPlus Weight-Loss System provides an allowance for “man-made” (non-veggie) zeros. The plan suggests that any member limit their servings of zeros to five a day. In the long run, your weight loss will be the guide. If weight loss is slow, you might want to pull back on the zeros. Remember all foods have calories.

Nutritional info is per tablespoon and may vary based on your “cream cheese” of choice. I know someone is going to ask if fat-free cream cheese can be subbed. I can’t recommend this, not just because I am biased as a vegan, but because I’ve never tried fat-free cream cheese and have no idea how it tastes.

Substitutions I can recommend: Coconut butter would be a terrific substitution in this (and pretty much anything else ;)). Raw cashew butter would work as well. Or the cashew option noted in the post. Obviously the taste will be different, but it will be just as delicious in its own right.
