Yummy Low-Fat Jello Poke Cake

This is an easy to make and oh so yummy cake. I started making this when I was following Weight Watchers because it's low in points. I still make it to this day and just love it. Even my kids love it!

I made it for dinner tonight so decided to take some pictures and share the recipe with you all.

Yummy Low-Fat Jello Poke Cake

1 box white cake mix
12 oz. diet 7up (I used cherry diet 7up)
4 oz. box of sugar-free Jello (I used (2) 3oz. boxes but didn't use it all)
1 container Cool Whip Free


1. Open up the box of cake mix and pour into large mixing bowl. Add 12 oz. of diet 7up. Mix well. PLEASE NOTE: You do NOT add anything else to the cake mix, just the diet 7up. So you are leaving out the egg, oil, water, etc.

2. Pour mixed cake batter into a 13x9 inch baking pan sprayed with pam.

3. Bake according to cake mix package directions.

4. When cake is done baking, remove from oven to cool slightly.

5. When cake has cool slightly, take a fork and poke holes in the top.

6. Make the jello according to package directions competing ONLY the hot water part.
Do NOT add the cold water.

7. Pour the heated jello water all over the top of the cake.

7. Put cake in refrigerator to chill.

8. Once cake has chilled, top with fat-free cool whip.

9. And Enjoy!

This cake can make anywhere from 12 to 20 servings depending on what size you make each serving. I cut mine smaller so I make 20 servings.

There are so many different favor combinations you can make using a box cake mix and diet soda:

Chocolate Cake w/diet coke
Chocolate Cake w/diet cherry coke
Chocolate Cake w/diet root beer
White Cake w/diet orange soda
Banana Cake w/diet root beer
Lemon Cake w/diet 7-up
Lemon Cake w/diet ginger ale
Pineapple Cake w/diet Squirt
Red Velvet w/diet cherry vanilla Dr Pepper
Spice Cake w/diet orange

Note: I don't always put the jello in my cake, for example when using chocolate cake mix, I don't use jello. Just make the cake with diet soda, bake and cool, then top with cool-whip.

I hope you enjoy! :)

Here's to a healthier you,

    Brilliant!!! I've done the diet pop/cake mix before, but I never thought of applying it to a poke cake!

    Every Christmas I make a poke cake. I use red and green jello. I make 2 9" rounds, one is red, on is green, and it's pretty and festive, and GOOD! I was wondering what I would do this year at Christmas! You've just solved that for me! Thank you!

    Ha! AMAZING - not sure if all the ingredients are available over here, but I am sure we can find substitutions.

    It does look tasty!

    I have made something like that for Christmas before too using the red and green jello. I love this cake in it's full fat version but it's still very yummy in this lower fat way! :)

    hopefully you can, be sure to let us know if you make it :)

    That is so great!! I definitely see making that cake in my post-baby weight watchers journey. How many points is it?

    YW Joanne :)

    Twisted Cinderella:
    If you cut it into 12 pieces it is 4 pts. each (these are BIG pieces). I cut mine smaller and get 20 pieces so the pts are lower (about 2.5pts. each).

    Healthy? You serious? Eating chemicals never intended to be consumed by a human being is not healthy.
