Give Me Some Sugar

I am a sugar fanatic. Well the kiss kind and the food kind. I knew with my new heathy journey i'd have to quickly find a replacement for sugar. For the first week I cut out sugar entirely. Then I found an awesome recipe for Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes. They are seriously good. They are definitely not the healthiest choice but they are a great low calorie substitution for my normal cookies every night.

Ingredients:
1 box of Funfetti cake mix
1 can of Diet Cherry 7up

Directions:
Mix cake mix and 7up together. I used a mixer to get it nice and smooth. Pour batter into cupcake tin. Makes 24 cupcakes

Icing:
Ingredients:
Fat free sugar free pudding. {You can use whatever flavor you want. I've tried vanilla and chocolate and we prefer chocolate}
1 Tub of Cool Whip

Directions:
Mix dry pudding packet with cool whip. The original recipe calls for half a tub of cool whip but doesn't specify ounces. I used 1 tub of the small containers from HEB.


I keep mine in the fridge and limit myself to about one a day. {J eats a lot more than that a day} They are about 100 calories each. I don't know anything about weight watchers but the original post says that they are 1.5 points on the weight watcher scale.

{excuse the poor presentation...taste is what matters}

Happy Eating!

  2. 1.5 points means if thats all you ate today you could probably eat about 16 of those today to reach your pint limit.
