Labor Day was created as a way to celebrate and highlight the struggles of the American worker for organized rights. So, take a break from work, and reward yourself with these low-fat, but delicious cupcakes (yes, it’s possible!).
HEALTHY TIPS: Use a white cake mix; it calls for 3 large egg whites and no yolks. Also, use fat-free sour cream (or any yogurt) instead of the vegetable oil called for on the box. Lastly, for frosting, use light cream cheese, whipped butter or a less-fat margarine, then add a bit of powdered sugar and vanilla extract. With all this, each cone is down to 160 calories! Without the changes, a cone would contain around 290 calories, 13 grams fat, 6 grams saturated fat, and 46 mg cholesterol per serving.
