Watermelon Yogurt Cupcakes

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

So, if you have been reading since the beginning you know that I love to read Shay's blog, Mix and Match Mama and one day not too long ago she posted a recipe for Watermelon Cupcakes. I love watermelon and I love cupcakes so this combination is amazing to me! 

Being on Weight Watchers though, I am not making cupcakes the traditional way lately. I am subbing all the fat for a cup of Fat Free Greek Yogurt instead. You can see my Strawberry Yogurt Cupcakes recipes here. When I bought the strawberry cake mix, what I really wanted was a watermelon mix, but they did not have one, so when I saw Shay's recipe, I thought, I could add watermelon to my cupcakes and that is what I did! 

If you aren't worried about calories and Weight Watcher points, go check out Shay's recipe, but if you are, check out mine! 

Low Point Watermelon Yogurt Cupcakes

Box White Cake mix
1 Cup Vanilla or Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 1/4 cup Watermelon puree  *divided
Light Cool Whip

Mix together cake mix, yogurt and 1 cup of Watermelon puree. 

Pour into prepared muffin pan. I sprayed my pan and did not use baking cups. Bake according to box directions. 

While cupcakes cool, add 1/4 cup watermelon puree* to 1 cup of the Cool Whip and pour over the top of each cupcake right before eating.  
*This addition changes the consistency of the cool whip as you can see in the picture. 

Serves 24
2PP+ Each

**A few notes, the cupcakes didn't come out tasting very "watermelony" but the cool whip definitely adds a big watermelon punch! Due to the consistency of the cool whip, I think it is better to pour it over right before eating one, rather than frosting them all ahead! I just kept my extra cool whip mix in a covered container in the refrigerator!  

My kids loved these cupcakes with just a dollop of the plain cool whip on them or you could certainly frost them! 

These are a refreshing summertime treat! 



  1. Looks so good, Sandy! I love anything with yogurt :)

  2. Oh wow watermelon cupcakes sounds delicious! Pinned this for later!

  3. WATERMELON cupcakes?! So creative. I would have never thought to combine the two. I'm intrigued and might have to do some baking...not my strong suit :)


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
