He recently eliminated dairy from his diet and has been adjusting to the change. Now the challenge has been finding foods he loves so finding these cute little pints in flavors I even find to be yummy was a win for the day! 😉 Made with this cake mix or homemade copycat Sara Lee Pound Cake and a can of soda it’s a real win after dinner.

Soda Pop Cake

Now I bought my Open Nature products in Boise at my local Albertsons. They have many other names in their family of stores such as Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway. Check one that is near you for a wide selection of flavors + other great recipes like this one!

This is one of my favorites I think, banana walnut fudge! Last week I made these 2 ingredient pineapple cupcakes using this soda cake recipe. Used pineapple cake mix + diet lemon lime soda, but you can really go for any flavor you want! Made into cupcakes, mini bundt cakes, or a bundt is killer.

There are so many flavors of cake mixes I couldn’t list all the combinations. Use your imagination. With just a can of soda pop and cake mix you too can make this guilt free dessert that is ready in about 20 minutes and is only about 100 calories each as cupcakes!

Cake Mix and Soda Cupcakes

Each box of cake has different total calories. Just divide that by 24 – # of total cupcakes. If you use diet soda there aren’t any calories added to that + I added a small scoop of vanilla with only 240 calories for the whole pint to get my 100 calorie total.

Easy peasy and delicious. Now there are a few ways you can enjoy this combo…… Looking for a late night treat? Grab a spoon and enjoy it right out of the carton!

Want added flavors, crumble up some of your soda pop cake and put it inside your pint. The banana and pineapple flavors and so good together! The only things you’ll need are a box of cake mix, yellow cake, white cake mix, lemon cake mix, they all work. A can of flavored soda and a large bowl. Make your favorite combination.

dairy free ice cream

Use cupcake liners for smaller versions you see here or a bundt cake pan for a full cake. Combine the two in your mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Fill, bake at 350. Doesn’t matter what soda and cake mix you combine for bake times. Cool completely before flipping cake on to a pan.

I use The French vanilla cake mix with a 12 ounce of bottle orange cream soda and for the frosting I use cream cheese frosting with 10 little orange pixie sticks mixed in with it And then as I serve each piece I put one scoop of orange cream ice cream on top it's really good
