These strawberry cupcakes are only 2 points each!! Green, blue or purple…it doesn’t matter!
And they taste great! If you need a sweet fix this will do the trick.
I used Pillsbury sugar-free yellow cake mix for this recipe. To give it a strawberry flavor I added 12 oz. of diet strawberry pop.
I live in Michigan where we have Faygo pop. It is really good!! I used Faygo diet strawberry, but any diet strawberry pop will do.
I have also made Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes which were really good!
If this is your first time mixing soda with cake mix it probably sounds weird. I don’t know why it works, but it does!
You don’t need to use eggs, oil or water, just the diet strawberry pop.
I used fat free Cool Whip for the topping, but you can also use fat-free whipped cream. I did a small line around the cupcake, then filled the center with fresh cut strawberries.
This recipe makes 24 cupcakes. I don’t put the topping on until I’m ready to eat the cupcakes.
Making the cupcakes is very easy. You just mix together the sugar-free cake mix and the diet strawberry pop with a hand-held mixer for 2 minutes.
Next you add the cake batter to cupcake liners and bake 18-23 minutes.
While the cupcakes were baking I chopped up the strawberries.
I let the cupcakes cool completely before adding the toppings.

Use a handheld mixer and mix batter on low for 2 minutes.
Line a cupcake pan with liners and fill each one up half way with the cupcake batter.

While the cupcakes are baking chop the strawberries into small pieces.
Let the cupcakes cool completely, then add a circle of whipped topping around the edge and fill with chopped strawberries.
