Ok – back to my low calorie lemon cupcake recipe! 🙂
You will love this recipe! I’m so excited to share it with you.
It has really helped me to stay on track of eating healthy. I can enjoy a treat without ruining my diet or feeling guilty.
So of course I had to try this low calorie cupcake!
I’ve been trying to eat better, but for some reason all I can think about is desserts!!
You only need two ingredients for Skinny cupcakes recipe:
Yes, you only need Sprite Zero and a cake mix. I used Betty Crocker Lemon, but I think strawberry, funfetti, and cherry chip would also be delightful.
Duncan Hines is just as good. Grab what is on sale. 🙂
I’m not sure about chocolate… I might have to try it this weekend.
I told you this was incredibly simple.
Let’s get started making Low calorie lemon cupcakes!
- 1 1/2 cup Sprite Zero
- Cake Mix (we used lemon cake)
How to make Low calorie lemon cupcakes:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine the sprite and the cupcake in a bowl. Stir to combine (It will fizz… a lot, so don’t freak out. I was worried at first. Continue stirring it until the lumps are out. )
- Pour in the cupcake pan to make 20 cupcakes. I used liners just like you would for normal cupcakes.
- Bake for 17-20 minutes or until they start to brown. Use a toothpick inserted to make sure they are cooked completely.
- Allow to cool completely. Serve as it or top with a little bit of powdered sugar so they look cute!
After doing the math on Skinny cupcakes recipe:
An entire batch of these cupcakes is 1600 calories. However, I made 20 cupcakes so they are only 80 calroies each! Woohoo!
This is a delicious treat for under 100 calories. Of course, if you made 24 cupcakes, they would only be 66 calories each.
I didn’t think my batter would make it to 24 cupcakes, so I am happy with 20 delicious cupcakes for very little calories.
You could even try making mini cupcakes! So cute!
We didn’t frost the cupcakes to save on calories but you certainly could do so if you desired.
If you are in the market for new pans, there are several regular size and mini muffin pans here. I recently had to update most of my pans and was thankful to get them on sale.
Make sure you try some of our delicious cupcakes. I know you will find more your family will love.
This lemon dessert is so tasty. Everyone loves this cupcake recipe.
I’m going to try using strawberry cake mix next time. Yum!
Diet desserts taste amazing!
Now, I thought these were good, but I was nervous about the kids? I mean would they notice the no eggs and no oil in there?
Nope, not at all. They all had two and begged for a third!
I didn’t however let them have the third, because what was I going to eat after they were asleep. 🙂
I also gave one to my baking friend. She is the master of baking everything… I mean she is always baking.
She ate one and couldn’t believe that there wasn’t any egg or oil in there. Woohoo… mission accomplished!!
If she enjoyed them, they will definitely be a hit with everyone!

I’m sure you are curious how much I paid for this all, right?
Well I got the cupcake mix for $.25 with a coupon when it was on sale. Then the Sprite zero was $1.
I used less than half, but we will say $.50 for even math. That means I paid $.75 for a fun and “healthy” treat.
Not only are these treats healthy but they are budget friendly. They also take very little time to make.
It’s a win all around! It’s so nice to have recipes like this I can make and stay on track.

No one ever knows they only have 80 calories in the cupcakes. Once I tell people, they are shocked!
I have even made these for a birthday party and the kids were none the wiser. 🙂 These cupcakes are guaranteed to be a hit with everyone!
