light birthday cake dip

I don’t know about you, but every time I make boxed cake mix (especially funfetti), I find myself eating way too much of the batter. That batter is definitely not the best for you, so I sought to create the next best thing – this Light Cake Batter Dip. It’s reminiscent of raw cake batter (in the best way), but doesn’t require any raw eggs, flour, etc. It just takes a few ingredients (which may already be in your fridge/pantry), and it’s a WW friendly, lower-sugar dessert option that’s scrumptious! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Making Light Cake Batter Dip

Making this dip is as simple as mixing a few ingredients and letting them set. It’s comprised of:

  • sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix (or you can use regular if you’re not following WW)
  • almond extract – this helps give it a cake batter flavor
  • skim milk – which will help set the pudding, though we’ll purposely use less than the pudding box calls for to thicken the dip up
  • fat free cool whip – which adds sweetness as well as a light, fluffy texture to the dip
  • sprinkles – because duh

First, combine pudding and milk and whisk for 2 minutes, until it thickens. Then, add in your almond extract and whisk that in. Then fold in the Cool Whip until fully incorporated. Lastly, add sprinkles and fold them in. You can serve immediately or let it sit in the fridge (note- if you’re going to let it sit, add sprinkles just before serving so the colors don’t bleed and dye the dip). Serve with cut fruit, nilla wafers, graham crackers, pretzels, or just eat it on a spoon. Save any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!
