These orange creamsicle cupcakes are only 3 Freestyle points each!!
A cupcake for only 3 points is music to my ears. Plus they are super easy to make!
I used Pillsbury sugar-free yellow cake mix and diet orange soda to make the batter. That’s it, no eggs or oil.
I used a handheld mixer to combine the cake mix and soda for 2 minutes. Once I was done I added the batter to a cupcake pan filled with cupcake liners.
The batter looks just like regular cake batter. It also has the same texture. After the cupcakes make they look like regular cupcakes. It’s crazy!
I baked the cupcakes according to the directions on the box, then let them cool.
You want to make sure your cupcakes have cooled completely before adding the toping.
To keep this cupcake low in points I used fat-free Cool Whip for the frosting. It goes together great with the orange flavor of the cupcake.
If you are not eating the cupcakes right away I suggest waiting to add the Cool Whip. I keep the Cool Whip in the fridge up to a couple days.
I added some sprinkles to my cupcake, but that is totally optional. If you do add sprinkles make sure you add any extra points.
I’m excited to try this recipe with other soda flavors too!
