[Skinny Taste]
Skinny Taste is always serving up delicious recipes that are low in calorie and good for your body. I love exploring the web to find blogs that support a healthy lifestyle, but still allow for fun in eating better. I think sometimes people focus so much on the diet aspect of a lifestyle, that they lose out on all the fun! When I saw these Pink Lemonade Confetti Cupcakes at only 97 calories a pop, I had to share. Live a little. Add some color to your life!

Ingredients:
  • 18.25 oz box confetti cake mix, I used Duncan Hines
  • 2 1/2 tsp powdered sugar-free pink lemonade mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • lemon zest from half of a lemon
  • 2 drops pink food coloring (optional)
  • confetti sprinkles, optional

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line cupcake tins with 24 paper liners.

Stir together the water and pink lemonade powder.  Combine the cake mix, pink lemonade mixture, applesauce, lemon zest, food coloring and oil in a large bowl and with an electric mixer, mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake pans.  Add sprinkles if using and bake in the oven for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.

Cool completely on wire racks before serving.

YUM!
