So we’re finally getting Spring weather!! We’re supposed to be in the 80s this weekend! I’m so happy! (I promise I’m not trying to gloat those of you still seeing snow!!) But I love Spring! I love being able to wear flip flops with sweatshirts. I love that I can get fresh asparagus for 99 cents.
You know what I don’t love though? Spring makes me overly aware of the extra winter pounds I have put on & that bathing suit season is only a very short distance away.
Bathing suit season & my sweet tooth just don’t tend to see eye to eye on things. Every Spring I tell myself I’m going to work hard to lose at least a few of these extra pounds but my love of all things dessert related tends to win out.
Luckily this year, I’ve come up with a creative way to satisfy my addiction to sweets without totally destroying the work I’m doing to lose some weight. I give you my Skinny Creamsicle Cake Batter No Churn Ice Cream! Or as the Hubs refers to it – the new best thing he’s ever eaten.
For this no churn ice cream, I took my Sunkist Cupcakes and turned them into a delicious frozen treat! But since we are trying to keep things skinny, I substituted the new Sunkist TEN soda. I wanted that full orange flavor I love but with only 10 calories, it let’s me keep things light & waist line friendly!
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place baking cups in your muffin tin.
- In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix & Sunkist TEN soda. Stir slowly until fully combined. Fill the baking cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake the cupcakes according to the package directions. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely. you will only use about 6 of the cupcakes for the ice cream - save the rest of the cupcakes for a delicious snack :)
- In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk & cool whip until combined. Crumble 6 of the cupcakes into the cool whip mixture & fold in. Feel free to add in an extra cupcake if you want more of the cake batter flavor.
- Spoon the mixture into a freezer safe dish - I used a loaf pan. Wrap the dish in saran wrap & then wrap with foil (or use a freezer safe dish with a lid). Freeze the ice cream for a minimum of 2 hours.
