Skinny Fun-fetti Cheesecake Dip

I didn't think something like this was possible, but turns out it is! Being my birthday on the 8th of October, I knew I wanted a skinny alternative to stand next to the delicious, fattening chocolate cake that my b/f's mom made me! God, I love that cake. I wish I could send you all a piece of it! You know the secret ingredient for a good chocolate cake?

coffee! 

It turns out it enhances the chocolate as opposed to making it taste like chocolate coffee.

back to the Fun-fetti cake dip. 

No, it doesn't hold a candle to my chocolate cake. No sweet food will ever come between me and that cake. However, the Fun-fetti cake dip to me can easily be second best. It could pass as a much creamier version of some yummy icing. The best part of that is, is that it is the skinny version!




here's your ingredients:

Directions are so simple:
-Make the Cheesecake Pudding according to the package. Let it set. 
-Add all 3 ingredients into a huge bowl and stir it up

1 serving would be 1/4 cup. 
 I tried to figure out calories and it was tough to figure out. I would say 270 calories in each serving and there are some calories in fat from both the fun-fetti cake mix and the cool whip lite. Just a head's up!

I first got the idea from Eat Yourself Skinny and she used plain yogurt in place of the pudding. I do think the cheesecake pudding gives it a little something. But then again, I have yet to try the yogurt version. Which ever one you have will work! 

I didn't expect the dip to get as thick as it was. My best friend Alex said it tasted just like cake batter, but much thicker. It was really delicious.

Idea's for dipping
We used dehydrated banana's & apples (my personal fav), 
strawberries, 
animal crackers, 
grapes which I thought were blueberries at the store. Everyone makes mistakes.
It's also really good with apple slices which I have been doing since my birthday.

So it isn't "good" for you but it's a much better option for any kid's party, adult party, birthday party, halloween party, work potluck, or any gathering of lots of people. Or you can make it for a bake sale and put it in little containers along with a little baggie of homemade shortbread cookies for dipping! that sounds like a fun, unique idea to me!

cool whip lite

So what do you guys think? Do you wanna try it out?

thank you for reading!

I also wanted to let you know that you can try any variation! chocolate cake and banana yogurt, lemon pudding with white cake, maybe if you can find a caramel anything (cake mix or pudding or yogurt) that would be good...just a thought!
