Weight Watcher’s FreeStyle Inspired Cherry Poke Cake Recipe
- Sugar Free Cake Mix (White/Yellow)
- 10 oz Sprite Zero/Diet Sprite
- Sugar Free Cherry Jello (0.3 oz)
- Sugar Free/Fat Free Cool Whip
- Red/Pink Gel Food Coloring
- Fresh Berries
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 cake pan** with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix and Sprite Zero, until completely mixed together.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Let cake cool completely.
- When cake is cooled, use the handle of a spoon and poke holes throughout the top of the cake.
- Prepare the Jello according to the Speed-Set directions on the box , reducing the cold water by 1/2 cup.
- Pour jello over cake and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
- Once cake is cooled, combine cool whip and food coloring until the desired pink shade is reached.
- Top with fresh berries before serving.
** If you want you can bake the cake in 2 round cake pans (8 or 9 inch) and stack together with some of the cool whip between each layer. You can also use a silicone 9 inch cake pan that is tall to make one large round cake.
When cut into 12 slices, this Cherry Poke Cake is only 6 Weight Watchers Freestyle points per slice.
Just like most recipes, let your creativity guide you when you make this recipe and experiment with other Sugar Free Jello flavors. As long as your choices are sugar-free the point value will stay the same. For those of you that are not worried about cutting calories, this recipe can be made with regular cake mix, gelatin, and whipped topping. You can also get creative with toppings and use shaved chocolate, ice cream sprinkles, and more. Just remember that any additions will change the point value of the recipe.
