Krispy Kreme Donut Calories

Just like Cinnabon (as you can see on our Cinnabon Nutrition page), these are not exactly healthy. They are packed with all kinds of additives and they are high in calories and fat. However, as an occasional treat, they are perfectly okay. Donuts are generally unhealthy, and the same applies to Dunkin’ Donuts and to Tim Hortons as it does to KK.

However, as you can see from out Krispy Kreme Nutrition Info table above, some of them have very few calories. If you opt for the Original Glazed, then you will be consuming just 200 calories, but the Glazed Chocolate is 340 calories, and that’s not even the most calorific.

How Many Calories in a Krispy Kreme Donut?

There are just 190 calories in a Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donut. If you order one of their special donuts then you will only get a few more calories, rarely more than 250 per donut.

Are Krispy Kreme Donuts Vegans?

Krispy Kreme donuts are vegetarian, as they do not use meat derivatives, but they are not vegan as they do use milk and egg.

Can you Freeze Krispy Kreme Donuts?

We personally wouldn’t recommend it, as it damages the integrity a little, but you can freeze and then reheat Krispy Kreme donuts. This is advice you can find on their official pages, but they also recommend that you eat fresh.

Krispy Kreme Donut Recipe

Krispy Kreme Calories

As you can see from our Krispy Kreme Nutrition table above, there are a lot of calories in these donuts. If you look at the Krispy Kreme Nutrition info below, you’ll also see that there are just as many ingredients. However, you can cut those calories and those ingredients down by making them yourself at home.

They will still be fatty and full of sugar, that’s what makes them taste so great. But you can ensure that they have fewer saturated fats and you can also keep those additives to a minimum by using basic ingredients and cooking fresh batches when you’re ready to eat them.

Ingredients

For the Donuts

  • 2 packets of yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups vegetable shortening/ vegetable oil

For Glaze

  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

  2. Add milk, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening and 2 cups of the flour.
  3. Turn the mixer on for 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the rest of the flour and mix until combined.
  5. Remove bowl, cover with a clean towel and let rise for an hour.
  6. When ready, remove dough. Roll sections into 1/2 inch thick pieces using a floured service.
  7. Cut out doughnuts and place on wax paper.
  8. Leave to rise, covered, in a warm spot for up to an hour.
  9. In a deep pan, heat vegetable shortening/oil to 375 degrees.
  10. Fry the doughnuts on each side for 90 seconds.
  11. Remove and drain as you go.
  12. For glaze, add powdered sugar, milk and corn syrup to a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.
  13. Dip the cooling donuts into glaze, wait until it hardens and then tuck in!

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding is made using stale KK donuts, preferably the Original Glazed ones. Bread pudding is not for everyone. It’s one of those things that you either love or hate, something that you remember from your youth in either a very positive or very negative way. But even for those who typically hate this dessert, we would still recommend Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding.

So, stop throwing those old donuts out. Stop stuffing them down your face in dry, tasteless shame. This is the perfect way to use them up.

To make this, just following these instructions.

Ingredients

For the Bread Pudding

  • 1 dozen stale Original Glazed donuts.
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

For the Topping

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Chop/rip donuts into half a dozen pieces each.
  3. Place donut pieces in a greased baking dish.
  4. Whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, salt, vanilla and nutmeg in a bowl.
  5. Pour the wet mixture over the ripped doughnuts. Let everything sit for five to ten minutes.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes.
  7. While baking, make the sauce: add chocolate to a small bowl. Bring cream to a boil in a small saucepan and then pour over chocolate. Let sit for a minute and then stir until it creates a smooth, silky sauce. Drizzle or pour this over the pudding.
  8. Serve Krispy Kreme bread pudding warm and tuck in.

Krispy Kreme: Vegan, Halal, Gluten-Free


Want to know whether Krispy Kreme is okay for your diet? This is a huge chain that sells a product most of us can’t resist. So, they try their best to cater for many different diets and needs, thereby increasing their profits and catering to a wider population. Only makes sense. However, there are limits to what they can do and not everyone can enjoy these sweet treats.

We have answered your questions regarding Krispy Kreme menu nutrition and special diets below:

  • Is Krispy Kreme Halal? All donuts have been certified as Halal friendly by the Halal Food Authority.
  • Is Krispy Kreme Vegan? Unfortunately not. These donuts may seem harmless and vegan friendly, but they are not. They use a lot of butter and milk, definitely not vegan friendly. As far as we know, there are no plans to change that and this applies in all global stores.
  • Is Krispy Kreme Vegetarian? Most products are vegetarian friendly. While there are a lot of dairy ingredients used, there are no meat-based ingredients.
  • Is Krispy Kreme Gluten-Free? No. You probably knew that already, what you should be asking is:
  • Does Krispy Kreme Have a Gluten-Free Donut? Unfortunately, this is also a no. They have publicly stated that it would change the taste too much and they are not willing to do that just yet.
  • Is Krispy Kreme Okay for Allergies? Their donuts contain wheat, milk, eggs, soy, cereals and sulfites. There are also nuts used. What’s more, many of them contain additives and preservatives.

Krispy Kreme Original Glazed: Nutrition Content and Ingredients

As mentioned above, there are a number of additives and calories in these donuts. But just what are you getting in each donut? Well, we can use the Original Glazed as an example. You already know how many calories and fat are in there from our Krispy Kreme Nutrition Info table. That’s probably worried you a bit, and for that we are sorry, but this ingredient list may worry you more:

Enriched bleached wheat flour, water, sugar, soy flour, egg yolks, vital wheat gluten, yeast, nonfat milk, yeast nutrients, dough conditioners, salt, mono-and-diglycerides, ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, lecithin, calcium propionate, cellulose gum, natural and artificial flavors, fungal alpha amylase, amylase, maltogenic amylase, pantosenase, protease, sodium caseinate, corn maltodextrin, corn syrup solids, BHT, calcium carbonate, agar, locust bean gum, disodium phosphate, sorbitan monostearate.

The flour itself contains a wealth of ingredients. Many of these are loaded with vitamins and minerals, which is where the “enriched” comes from. These include niacin, iron, thiamine, mononitrate, riboflavin and folic acid. But there is also dextrose and vegetable shortening in there, with the latter coming in the form of “partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil”. Now doesn’t that sound delicious!

Of course, as mentioned already, everything is fine in moderation. You probably know it’s bad and it should stop you from eating them every day. But there’s no need to omit them from your life altogether. Everybody needs donuts.
