    This was on Dr. Oz last week ... very cool! Cake Mix + Fat-Free Greek Yogurt 180 calories per serving - I"ll have to try this.... Cake Mix + No-Sugar-Added Applesauce PER SERVING (1 piece, 1/12th of cake): 179 calories, 3.25g fat, 299mg sodium, 36g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 21.5g sugars, 1.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* Ingredients: One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix 1 cup no-sugar-added applesauce Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix with applesauce in a large bowl and add 1 cup water. Whisk thoroughly and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.) MAKES 12 SERVINGS Best Flavor: Yellow cake mix. It goes perfectly with the fruity taste of the sauce. The Texture: VERY moist and fluffy. A+! The Taste: AMAZING!!!! Sweet and slightly apple-y. Two YUMS up... Cake Mix + Diet Soda PER SERVING (1 piece, 1/12th of cake): 171 calories, 3.25g fat, 301mg sodium, 34g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 19g sugars, 1.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* Ingredients: One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix One 12-oz. can diet soda Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix with soda in a large bowl. Whisk thoroughly and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.) MAKES 12 SERVINGS Best Flavor Combo: Yellow cake mix + diet cream soda. Runners-up include lemon cake mix + diet lemon-lime soda and devil's food cake mix + diet cherry cola. The Texture: Moist and light. The Taste: Pretty darn impressive! However, if you're sensitive to the sweetener in diet soda, you may notice a slight aftertaste... especially if you use cola of any kind. Cake Mix + Canned Pure Pumpkin PER SERVING (1 piece, 1/12th of cake): 183 calories, 3.5g fat, 301mg sodium, 37g carbs, 1.25g fiber, 20.5g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* Ingredients: One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine cake mix with pumpkin in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly -- batter will be VERY thick -- and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.) MAKES 12 SERVINGS Best Flavor: Devil's food cake mix is CLEARLY a classic choice. (Hello?! Yum Yum Brownie Muffins!) But spice cake mix... WOW. Yellow and white cake mixes, sadly, do not work as well. The Texture: Thick and dense in the BEST possible way. Brownie-like, in the case of the devil's food; the spice cake reminded us of pumpkin bread! The Taste: No one would ever guess this is guilt-free in any way. It's delicious! Cake Mix + Fat-Free Liquid Egg Substitute PER SERVING (1 piece, 1/12th of cake): 181 calories, 3.25g fat, 337mg sodium, 34.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 19.5g sugars, 3.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* Ingredients: One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix 1 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix with egg substitute in a large bowl and add 1 cup water. Whisk thoroughly and transfer to a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray; bake in the oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. (Refer to cake-mix box for pan size and approximate bake time.) MAKES 12 SERVINGS Best Flavor: Egg sub is like the little black dress of cake companions; it goes well with everything. The Texture: The first time we made this, we used only 1/4 cup of water; it was a little dry and dense, but it reminded us of pound cake, which isn't a bad thing. With a full cup of water, it came out light and fluffy. It had a more substantial, cake-like consistency than the applesauce and soda versions, but it wasn't quite as moist. The Taste: Good! But it's not our favorite. That one's up next... Cake Mix + Fat-Free Greek Yogurt PER SERVING (1 piece, 1/12th of cake): 180 calories, 3.25g fat, 306mg sodium, 34.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 20g sugars, 3.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* Ingredients: One 18.25-oz. box moist-style cake mix 1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix with yogurt in a large bowl and add 1 cup water.

  • Karen Allegri

    Whats wrong with eggs?

  • Kristie Simmons

    Not super healthy, still has the box of chemicals in it. Maybe, healthier than using say vegetable oil.

  • Nicole Kaufman

    True I actually made a chocolate cake from scratch it was pretty tasty. Way better than a box. I was trying to cut down on calories so I didn't use eggs

  • Shafaque Shaikh

    You can use eggs... skip the water and use yoghurt to get the consistency of a cake batter... it works..

    . . . and you know yogurt is the ONLY food found to have a correlation with weight loss: http://www.nytimes.com/2011...

  • C. Q.

    Susan, it has to be a plain yogurt, and it has to have live cultures. But yes, definitely choose one you like the taste of. I usually use the Astro Balkan Style, which works great. The main reason I go with it, though, is because it's one of the few plain yogurts I can buy in a single-serving container.

  • C. Q.

    Well I've lost nearly 120 lbs in the last two years, and I eat 8 oz of yogurt every morning. I couldn't access the link, though, but I can attest to it being part of what I do.

  • Susan Lee

    Thanks for the tips! I can't drink plain milk as I'm lactos intolerant but enjoy plain Greek. I eat a medditeranian based diet so this is perfect! I look foreard to trying this! Fantastic Cheryl - congrats!

  • Bruce Gilardi
