Weird title, I know. I heard a bartender ask someone this on a movie once when I was a child and it struck me funny. In fact it rings rather true when you learn about the effects of alcohol on your body, etc., and it is probably true in my case being that I drink diet pop. It is bad for you, I know. I try to limit myself to drinking it only on special occasions, or when we eat out. However, lately, I find I want one at least once a day as a pick-me-up, a treat, or something sweet with no calories. It is a struggle!
My good friend, Shari, who looks fantastic since she has met her goal and works out on a regular basis, gave me this "recipe". Could not be easier!
Take one can of Diet Dr. Pepper (okay, this is Diet Dr. Thunder, but it works just as well), one box of devil's food cake mix and 2 egg whites. That's it! Nothing more! Mix it up and make 24 cupcakes out of it. Use a dollop of FF whip cream on top and you've got yourself a piece of chocolate heaven for only 1 point.
I was using up my Christmas cupcake papers =)
How does it taste, you ask?? Well, let's just say that all the guys in my house liked it until I told them it was a WW recipe. Dan won't touch them now and Ty has avoided them. Tanner, though eats 2-3 each night when he comes home from school. True, I would rather have something gooey, chewy, fudgey and loaded with sweet buttercream icing, but that's the kind of thing that got me into this size of jeans I now wear, so let's just move on, shall we??
Shari also suggested using a diet strawberry/raspberry pop with a white cake mix - that sounds interesting too.
Thanks, Shari for your support and your great ideas.
