On sale in select stores throughout Louisiana and Texas and available for purchase online now, the Eat Fit King Cake is gluten free, grain free, low carb, sugar-free, dairy free and all natural, without sacrificing flavor.
Centered on an all-natural clean ingredient label, the Eat Fit King Cake is made with almond flour and coconut flour. It’s sweetened with locally-made Swerve, a natural, plant-based sweetener, with no artificial sweeteners or colors. Each serving has just two grams net carbs and zero sugar.
The Eat Fit King Cake was inspired by the King Cake recipe in Ochsner’s new Eat Fit Cookbook – the Eat Fit team immediately knew they needed to bring this to the retail market to make it easy for any and everyone to enjoy a clean-label king cake that also tastes incredible.
