Delicious fruit cobbler! Diabetic friendly

(Note- dated 4/13/13.  I have found a new way to make this cobbler so there are no dry spots.  I mix the cake mix with the soda in a bowl, then pour over the fruit.  Baking time remains the same.  New photos on the bottom of the post.)

I tried to lose weight with Weight Watchers awhile ago.  I wasn’t very successful.  Probably because Bluebell was NOT trying to lose weight.  It was difficult to cook for each of us differently.  And if we were out doing errands, she might suggest lunch at Five Guys.  Not too WW friendly menu there.

That all changed in January.  She went to the doctor and the doctor told her she should lose a “few pounds”.  So she also started doing Weight Watchers Online, and that has made all the difference.

We are both steadily losing.  She faster than me, but I will take any loss, even if it is only .5 pounds.

I recently wrote about our strawberry overload and how I was looking for ways to use the frozen strawberries.  Yesterday Bluebell found a yummy looking recipe on Facebook, and we decided to give it a shot.  The ingredients looked a little strange, but I am willing to try almost anything once.  I also found pictures on Living a Changed Life.  A great blog about an amazing story!

BERRY COBBLER (low sugar and low WW points)

1 box cake mix (any flavor you like- we used white cake)

2 16 oz bags of frozen fruit (we used frozen strawberries and frozen blueberries we had in the freezer) (I have since used mixed fruit bought at BJ’s.  we have also used peaches and mango…all super yummy!!)

1 can of diet Sprite or 7-Up

Place frozen fruit in a 9x 13 glass pan.  Spread dry cake mix over fruit evenly.  Pour can of soda over the top of the cake mix and fruit.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes covered with foil.  Then remove foil and bake another 40 minutes.

Here are pictures to show how we made this:

YUM!

YUM!

Mixing the cake mix with the soda in a bowl and pouring over the fruit make it look better and no more dry spots.

Much prettier!

We ate it plain and it was delicious!!

The next time I make this I will make the following changes:

1) I will mix the cake mix and soda in a bowl and then pour over the fruit (it was done this way in the two photos above)

  1. I wonder… If you used a more natural soda like “Zevia”, I it drops it down to “0”. Haha. Can you eat a food that has no WW points? The other sites may have been listing the points with the old system (I hear WW recently revamped their point system?)

  3. I am making this today! Great idea to mix the soda and cake mix first. I will try it!

  4. Thank you for posting this. I have no idea how I came across your page, but my 11 year old daughter cannot live without this cobbler. We have made 3 in 3 weeks! I use regular soda- I’ve tried sprite and Pepsi vanilla. I think mixed berries are the best, but plain strawberries are good too. I also have to set my oven to 375 or its undercooked. Thank you again and a big hug from my daughter!
