Two Light Desserts

Anyone who knows me very well, knows that I have a VERY sweet tooth!

And because of that, I am back on weight watchers!!! :)  But I still have my sweet tooth, so I am sharing not one…but Two Light Desserts!light lemon cupcakes and pineapple pops1The Light Lemon cupcakes are an old recipe that I think actually came from Weight Watchers.

To make the cupcakes, you will need a lemon cake mix.  Any brand will work.  And a can of diet soda.  I used diet 7-up.  Mix the two together and bake as directed on the cake mix box. light lemon cupcakes 

The frosting is light Cool Whip!  I added the yellow edible glitter, but it is just for show!  They taste the same without the glitter!light lemon cupcakes

This recipe makes a very light, airy cake, but it is perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth!

The next treat is frozen pineapple pops!  

To make the pineapple pops, you will need a can of pineapple slices, light yogurt or Greek Yogurt, and some toasted coconut, finely chopped nuts, or sprinkles.pineapple popsFirst of all you will need to drain the juice off of the  pineapple slices.  Then insert a skewer into the pineapple and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.  Put in freezer until frozen solid.  

Next, put the yogurt into a measuring cup or bowl that is deep, but wide enough for the pineapple slice to go into.  

Dip the pineapple slice into the yogurt until covered.  Tap the  side of the dish to remove the excess yogurt.  pineapple pops
Place the dipped pineapple back on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with coconut, nuts, or with sprinkles and place back in the freezer.  Freeze until solid.  

Now you have Two Light Desserts.  They are both very refreshing and there is NO guilt in eating either one of these treats!

Do you need a light treat for the warm months ahead??  Do any of you have other light treats that you would like to share?  I would love to hear about any that you have!  :)

  1. Rita, thanks for the cupcake recipe. I’ve been a WW lifer for awhile but have fallen off the wagon. Need to get back on plan so maybe these will help 😉

    1. Joan, from one WW lifer to another…it is so easy to fall off, I know! These recipes are both a great start to getting back on track, because it seems like the treats are the hardest to give up! But with these you don’t have to give up much! :)
