Can you believe you can actually stay headstrong with your healthy streak and get the full flavor of a delicious birthday cake at the same time? I can't take the credit for coming up with this delicious recipe (if you even call it a recipe). There's 3 ingredients to the dip, people. If I can make this, anybody can. Your 3-year-old can.
I found this fun and guiltless dessert on Pinterest — of course. :) Check out the original blog at Eat Yourself Skinny. The girl's got a lot of healthy recipes.
First, you need some low-fat or fat-free yogurt. I always eat Dannon's Light & Fit yogurt. It comes in vanilla, strawberry, blueberry and plain versions. I chose the vanilla kind, but I bet this dip would be fabulous with one of the other flavors as well. Each tub of yogurt has 4 servings, with each one rounding out at 110 calories and 0 grams of fat. That's pretty darn lean, friends. I used about 2 servings.
Take your box of cake mix and pour 1/2 to 2/3 of the box into a big bowl. I prefer Pillsbury's Funfetti cake mix, but I'm curious as to how the sugar-free vanilla or devil's food cake mix would do. Less calories equals more fun! Stir in the yogurt. Oh, and try not to make a big poof of cake dust like I did.
Stir in your fat-free, lite or sugar-free Cool Whip. Kraft Cool Whip comes in three different healthier versions, so you really don't have an excuse. ;) If you've stored it in the freezer, be sure to let it thaw out before adding it to your bowl. I used about half this size container.
Whip it. Whip it good! Stir it all up until there's no more dry cake dust. Let it chill in the fridge for at least an hour (although, it's pretty darn good right off the spoon at this point).
Serve your yummy dip with some naturally low-fat cookie/crackers like Stauffer's Animal Crackers. I almost bought the chocolate kind, which they make, and they're still low-fat. I guess I'll just have to make this again, and swap out all different flavored ingredients. :)
I hope you try this out, and let me know what you think in the comments. Have a fun-fetti time!
