I’ll admit it. I love the Cheesecake Factory. I love their HUGE salads. I am a fan of the Grilled Chicken Tostada salad with no tortilla, no corn, no vinaigrette, no dressing, and sour sour cream (a girl’s got to turn a 1,500+ calorie salad into a 600-calorie salad!) But that’s not what we’re here to talk about today. We are here to talk about desserts!
The Cheesecake Factory has two whole pages of desserts on their menu.
Continue reading to find out which dessert at The Cheesecake Factory has the fewest calories. Learn how to enjoy your Cheesecake Factory dessert without adding an extra 1,500 calories to your daily calorie count.
The Lowest Calorie Desserts at The Cheesecake Factory
1. Bowl of Fresh Strawberries – 250 Calories and the Lowest Calorie Dessert
It’s hidden at the bottom of the dessert menu under “Specialty Desserts,” so few people know about it. But you can get a bowl of fresh strawberries! Order the berries without the whipping cream and you are in for a super low-calorie dessert.
A bowl of strawberries at the Cheesecake Factory has about 250 calories.
2. Kids’ Scoop of Ice Cream – 320 Calories (2nd Lowest in Calories)
If you want to keep your desert to under 400 calories, ask if you can order a kids’ scoop of ice-cream.
A scoop of ice-cream at the Cheesecake Factory has 320 calories and 25 grams of sugar.
3. Ice Cream A La Mode – 400 Calories (3rd Lowest in Calories)
A scoop of ice-cream off the regular menu has about 400 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 16 grams of saturated fat. Not great, but better than a 1,100+ calorie cake!
Ask for the ice-cream without whipped cream to cut down on the total calories.
4. Kids’ Mini Hot Fudge Sundae – 480 Calories
If you want something a bit more indulgent, order the kids’ mini hot fudge sundae. It has 480 calories, but that’s less than one of the massive Cheesecake Factory cakes.
5. Cappuccino (100 Calories) or Café Latte (140 Calories)
If you want an after-dinner treat that is low in calories, order a cappuccino or a café latte. I love to have a decaf latte after dinner. Just make sure to ask for no sugar added and for low-fat milk.
6. Original or Tiramisu Cheesecake – 830 Calories and 850 Calories
Every single cake and cheesecake on the menu has more than 1,000 calories, with the exception of the original cheesecake and the tiramisu cheesecake.
If you want to stick to a dessert under 500 calories, order one of these two cheesecakes and split it with a friend.
Lowest Calorie Cheesecakes – All Over 1000 Calories!
Following the Original Cheesecake and the Tiramisu, the Very Cherry Ghirardelli Chocolate Cheesecake (1,160 calories), the Lemon Meringue Cheesecake (1,170 calories), the Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheesecake (1,060 calories), and the Key Lime Cheesecake (1,160 calories) or the Pumpkin Cheesecake (1,060) are the lowest in total calories.
Calories in Cheesecake Factory Low Carb Cheesecakes
I purposely did NOT include the two low carb cheesecakes in my recommendation for a low-calorie dessert. The low carb cheesecakes have fake sugar, which completely messes up food cravings.
I’d recommend avoiding the low carb cheesecakes and having a smaller portion of a cake that you love instead. If you insist, here’s the nutritional info for the sugar-free cakes at the Cheesecake Factory.
Low-Licious Cheesecake – 610 Calories
Low- Licious Cheesecake with Strawberries – 620 Calories
Curious About the HIGHEST Calorie Desserts?
Want to know which dessert has the highest calories? It’s the Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake, weighing in at a whopping 1,770 calories. Second is the carrot cake (1,720) calories and third is the Oreo Milkshake (1,630 calories).
My Tip: Enjoy Your Favorite Dessert and Have a Few Bites
If you are watching calories and want to lose weight, my recommendation is to go ahead and order your favorite dessert at the Cheesecake Factory. If you have no self-control, ask the waiter to throw half of the cake or dessert out before bringing it to the table. Then, share the dessert with a friend!
My personal favorite dessert is the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake. I limit myself to no more than ¼ of the cake and then take the rest home for my nephews!
