Now, you can get creative and try not to eat the whole thing and cut it into pieces to enjoy later or share with the table. Or you can opt to avoid temptation altogether and go for the much healthier Fresh Strawberries with whipped cream which has only 250 calories and 11g saturated fat. We always go with the Skinnylicious menu, which makes us feel very good about our choices, then we feel free to order a slice of Salted Caramel Cheesecake and eat the entire thing completely uninhibited. Again, this is totally up to you. No judgements here.
