These pudding filled cupcakes are so good!! AND only 3 points each with blue, green and purple!
Pudding filled cupcakes are also a fun dessert to make with kids. Anything to keep them busy these days!
To help keep these pudding filled cupcakes low in points I started by using Pillsbury sugar-free classic yellow cake mix.
I know that not everyone likes using sugar-free products, but a lot of people do. If you choose not to, I totally understand. This just won’t be a recipe you want to try.
For the pudding I also bought sugar-free and I used skim milk to mix with it.
Instead of using frosting I used fat-free Cool Whip. You could also use fat-free whipped cream.
To make the cake batter I simply added 12 oz. of diet Sprite. No eggs, oil or anything like that.
The cake batter will make 24 cupcakes.
Once the cupcakes are baked you want to let them cool all the way.
There are a couple of different ways you can remove the center of the cupcake. You can use a piping tip…using the fat end of it, stick it into the cupcake (about half way down, not too far though), twist it, then pull it out.
It’s important that you save the inside of the cupcake. You will be putting it back on once it is filled with pudding.
If you don’t have a piping tip you can use a paring knife. Insert it at a 45 degree angle and cut the center out, kind of like a cone shape. Again, make sure you save the center of the cupcake.
While my cupcakes were baking I made the chocolate pudding. It takes a few minutes to firm up, so by the time the cupcakes were cooled the pudding was ready.
I put the pudding in a large zip up bag, then cut the tip to use it like a piping bag.
Fill the center of each cupcake with pudding, you will have some pudding leftover.
Once they’re all filled you can put the tops back on.
The final step is to put the Cool Whip on.
There you have it, pudding filled cupcakes that are only 3 points each!
Yield: 24 cupcakes (3 points each for blue, green and purple)
- 1 box Pillsbury sugar-free classic yellow cake mix
- 12 oz. Sprite Zero or Diet 7 Up
- 1 (1.4 oz.) box sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding
- 2 cups skim milk
- 8 oz. fat-free Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Add the cake mix and Diet Sprite to a large mixing bowl. Use a hand-held mixer on medium for 2 minutes.
Add cupcake liners to a pan, then fill half way with cake batter. You should get 24 cupcakes.
Bake 19 to 23 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool completely.
While the cupcakes are baking prepare the pudding. Add the pudding mix and 2 cups of skim milk to a bowl and whisk for 2 minutes. The pudding will thicken after about 5 minutes.
Remove the center of each cupcake being careful not to go all the way to the bottom. Save the top of each cupcake.
Put pudding in a piping bag (or a zip up bag with the bottom corner tip cut off) and fill the center of each cupcake.
Put the top of the cupcake back on. Frost the cupcakes with the fat-free Cool Whip. Enjoy!
