Indulge in a sumptuous, fluffy red velvet poke cake without all the calories! This skinnified recipe has hardly any fat but PLENTY of amazing flavor!
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • 1 can zero-calorie ginger ale soda (or 7-up)
  • 1 container Yoplait Light Red Velvet yogurt
  • 1 tub Cool Whip Free, thawed
  • 4 Reduced-Fat Oreo Cookies, crushed
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and the soda -- ONLY these two ingredients! You are NOT using anything else like eggs, oil, or water -- just cake mix and soda. Let the foam subside a bit, then mix with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes or until blended.
  2. Pour the mixture evenly into the prepared dish. Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until top is set and sides begin to slightly pull away from the pan. Cool completely.
  3. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, evenly poke holes throughout the entire cake's surface. Distribute the yogurt among the top of the cake, spreading it to fill the holes as best as you can.
  4. Top the cake with the Cool Whip. Then top with the crushed Oreos and chocolate sprinkles, if you'd like. Refrigerate the cake, covered, for at least 8 hours or overnight to let the cake set. Store airtight in the fridge.
