Lemonade Cupcakes – 3 Points +

Lemonade Cupcakes

Back in May, I put together an awesome Weight Watches Dessert Recipe for a super fabulous blog, It Sux to Be Fat. If you haven’t ever had a chance to read her blog, Jennifer Swafford provides an open and honest dialogue there that covers Weight Loss, Exercise, Recipes and Nutrition. And she does it in a away that makes you feel like you are talking to your best friend, rather than some super skinny weight loss authority. Jennifer has lost 100 lbs with Weight Watchers and her story, advice and support are a great asset to anyone trying to lose weight, so I highly suggest checking out her blog!

Now, about those cupcakes…that’s right – they are just 3 Points + each! Made with a standard cake box mix, and a few healthier substitutions, these cupcakes will rock your world! They make a fantastic summer dessert recipe to bring to a potluck or BBQ, so if you need an idea for a Weight Watchers 4th of July Recipe, this would make an awesome one. Enjoy!
