Skinny Cake Batter No Churn Ice Cream

Skinny Cake Batter No Churn Ice Cream, could it get any better?

I had a blast making this Skinny Cake Batter No Churn Ice Cream. It may, if fact, be the easiest dessert that I’ve ever made. Only four ingredients make up this delicious dessert. You could purchase the cake and be down to three ingredients; you may sacrifice the ‘skinny’ part if you do that though.

So how did I make it skinny?

And, how can made with only four ingredients??

So here’s a little secret, you can make a cake using just a cake mix and diet soda! I know, scandalous, right? So all you do is combine the cake mix and the diet soda in a bowl. I used diet Sprite. I didn’t want  a dark soda that would alter the color of my cake. I used the Funfetti cake mix because I knew I’d be making this into ice cream, but you can do this with any flavor of cake. Bake cake according to instructions on cake and let it cool completely. I made a 9×13 cake.

Skinny Cake Batter Ice Cream

For the ice cream, you’ll only use half of this cake. You can make cake balls, truffles, truffle bark, or a trifle with the other half.

Using the diet soda made the cake part of this recipe low-calorie. For the other two ingredients I used fat-free sweetened condensed milk and fat-free whipped topping.

This would be a great recipe to have the children help  with. It would also be a great recipe, if you made a cake that either fell while baking or stuck to the pan.

Serves: 12 servings
  • 1 (15.25 oz) box cake mix, any flavor, I used Funfetti but you could use any flavor to change it up.
  • 1 can (12 oz) diet soda, I used diet Sprite
  • 16 oz container fat free whipped topping, I used Cool Whip (you could use lite or regular whipped topping)
  • 1 (14 oz) can fat free sweetened condensed milk (you could use regular)
  1. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and 12 oz diet soda. Stir to combine. Pour into cake pan. You can bake it in layers or a sheet pan. Use the instructions on the cake mix box as your guide for baking times. When done, remove and allow to cool.
  2. *You will only need half of the cake for this recipe*
  3. Whisk sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream until combined. Break HALF of the cake into large chunks and stir into the milk mixture. Allow some of the cake to stay in chunks.
  4. Pour mixture into a freezer save container that has a lid.
  5. I like to place plastic wrap directly on the ice cream then put the top on container.
  6. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Store in freezer up to 4 weeks.
*Optional- you could sprinkle chopped pecans, walnuts, almonds or pistachios over ice cream before freezing.

  1. I need this in my life!! I’m crazy about funfetti and this is just amazing looking!

  2. Wow, Paula, I can’t believe how easy this sounds and only 4 ingredients! The fact that it’s skinny is big bonus – especially for ice cream junkies like me! Thanks for sharing this fun recipe – pinning and sharing! Hope you have a happy Monday!

    • Thanks Cindy! My boys loved it, that always makes me happy :) Thanks for visiting and sharing, have a great week!

  3. WOW, this is a great recipe!

  4. I bet my kids would request this to go along with their birthday cake. Looks so easy!

  5. Paula, this looks great. My daughter will be home next week and we will have to try this recipe!

  6. No way! Diet soda? How cool! I definitely need to try that! This ice cream looks great and I love how easy it is!

  7. Oh my gosh that looks fantastic!!!

  8. What a fun and tasty ice cream – it looks fantastic! Love that you don’t need an ice cream maker for this and you can’t beat only 4 ingredients :) Can’t wait to give this a try – pinning :)

  9. Paula, this is really clever! I’ve made the “skinny” cakes with diet soda back when I was in university, but I’d never thought to make ice cream this way. Your photos look scrumptious and I’m sure it’s delicious.

    • Thanks so much, I’m really craving it again!

      • Michele says:

        Mine froze like a brick! Did I miss something?

        • Hmmmm, mine was firm but not like a brick. just like regular ice cream. I do like soft ice cream and I always leave it on the counter 3 to 4 minutes before scooping. How did it taste?

  10. Wow this is cool, PMC! I am pinning this to give it a try; all I’m missing is diet soda!
    I found your post at You’re Gonna Love It Tuesday’s Link Party. I’d love it if you’d consider sharing at my Brag About It Link Party over on VMG206.
    ~ Megin of VMG206

  11. Seriously, Paula?! I’m all about cake batter ice cream! (It’s my fave.) I’m loving the creativity with the soda… very awesome!

  12. Found this on Ducks n a Row by Sinea Pies. She has a weekly link up on Wednesdays with my best friend Jennifer Pilgrim called Moonlight and Mason Jars. Jenn’s blog is here : thenewlywedpilgrimage .com

    Anyway pinned your skinny cake batter and def plan on trying it myself!

  13. What is the calorie count per serving?

  14. David Dovente says:

    Hi Paula! Thank you sooooo much for sharing this recipe! I just did it and I looooove it! I know my friends will love when I share it with them.

  15. Wow, I have made the full fat version and we loved this. This looks good too!

  16. Daniela @ Put A Bird On It says:

  17. This looks so good! I’ll have to make this with my girls.

  18. Jessica says:

    Looks good, it may be skinny, but it’s not healthy.

  19. Cynthia says:

    Looks delicious! I’ve never thought to make ice cream out of cake. Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next time.

  20. OMG yum–why am I just now seeing this (it’s Lent and I gave up sweets/junk food)?! Bookmarking :D

  21. What an intriguing recipe! This looks awesome, Paula~ a must try!

  22. ILoveSweetsButNotFatness says:

    “Freeze for at least 2 hours. Store in refrigerator up to 4 weeks. ”

    Store in the REFRIGERATOR for up to 4 weeks, is that accurate? Does it not get kind of milky at a lower temp?

    Thanks for the recipe tho, We love cake batter ice cream for about the first 3 bites and then it gets entirely too sweet and gives us a headache! My son usually gives into the temptation anyway and keeps eating it until he is curled up in the fetal position, wondering why his head and belly hurt SO BAD!! Haha. Welllllll that is what happens when you overindulge… =P

  23. rox says:

    This looks freaking delicious…. but this is in no way “skinny”. Box Cake and Condensed milk have looooaaddddssssssss of calories and sugar!!!! Fat free doesn’t always mean “better choice”. Considering that there are 23g of sugar for only 1/12 of the cake box mix…

    That being said, it does look really amazingly good. And i would probably try it, but I just wouldn't label it "skinny" ;)

    • Thank you Rox. My brain was thinking of the fat content not necessarily the sugar when I wrote this. I will be more careful with my wording from now on.

  24. Angie says:

    I’m confused do I bake the cake as directed on the box? Or do I just add sprite and bake

    • Angie, bake the cake using the sprite only. It will work, odd as it seems. I usually whisk the sprite and cake mix by hand and dump it in a 9×13 pan and bake for 26 minutes (your oven may be a little different). It doesn’t matter what the cake looks like since it’s just going to be mixed in the other ingredients.

  25. There is nothing better then Cake Batter Ice Cream! It is my favorite!I would love if you would stop by and share your recipe on this week Heavenly Achievements! Thanks! Hope to see you there!

  26. I love this idea, Paula! Anything cake batter flavored is a favorite, and an added bonus that it’s “skinny!” Thanks for sharing. :)

  27. Sophia says:

    How much of the diet soda do you use for the cake batter?

  28. Alisha says:

    This recipe was delicious and super easy! However it’s not all that skinny. The calorie count for one eighth of a serving was about 160 cal and about 55 carbs. Tasted yummy and actually better than ice cream, great recipe! Thanks!!

  29. You had me at four ingredients

  30. This is going to change my life. Thanks for sharing. :)

  31. Kayla says:

    I’ve made this recipe several times and I love it!! Have you tried any other cake mixes or flavors? I would love to try some kind of healthy chocolate ice cream!

  32. Wow Paula This is so Fabulous and delicious yummy creamy just fab !! Thanks For Sharing !!

  33. looking forward to trying these recipes

  34. I’ll take this ice cream at any time of the year!

  35. I made the cake with straight seltzer from my sodastream and it came out great. .. thanks so much!
