7up Jello Poke Cake --- Sugar Free

I am still doing my Weight Watchers and can honestly say this is the easiest program I have ever done to lose weight!  So far in 29 days of following the plan I have lost 13 pounds!  I have been revamping some of my favorite desserts so they are point friendly.

My latest creation is one of my favorite summer desserts.  Jello Poke Cake!  In my lighter version I have used a sugar free cake mix, diet 7 up, sugar free jello and also sugar free cool whip along with a few other ingredients to make this a healthier version and one I can enjoy and not have to worry about using a half a days worth of points on :)

Tonight I am going to make a light version of Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I found sugar free chocolate chips at the grocery store yesterday.  I am excited to try this recipe!  I will post pictures on my Instagram (click her to go to my instagram page) after I have them made and let you know how they are and if they pass the taste test I will post the recipe here later this week.

The cake is baked in a 9x13 pan.  The serving size is 1/12th of the cake for 6 points.  Even if you are not following a diet plan this cake recipe is good for anyone who would like to cut back on their sugar.  I really like the taste of the cake and it is sweet enough but it does not taste as sweet to me as if it did have all the extra sugar.
