Skinny Peach Cobbler

A “skinny” or low-calorie peach cobbler made with only three ingredients and in a cast iron skillet.

And only 3 ingredients. Yup. Super easy to get your sugar fix.

But without so much sugar and fat. It’s a skinnier dessert. Since you know, it’s going to be Spring one of these days. Which allllso means swimsuit season is coming up.

AKA I need to stop eating the thousands of mini ice cream bundt cakes, peanut butter caramel cookie bars, and frozen thin mint cheesecake slices lying around.

Frozen Peaches

Yeah, that’s going to take some work. But luckily I have this dessert. This dessert and 10 calorie soda. Namely the four ten-calorie DPSG products: 7UP, Sunkist, A&W and Canada Dry. They only have 10 calories per serving. 10 calories of awesome flavor bliss – all the taste with slashed calorie amount.

I love adding soda to desserts to cut the calories and make them a “skinnier” option. Swapping the loads of butter, oils, eggs, shortening, etc. with 10-calorie soda does the trick. And it’s going to be my weapon in getting ready for swimsuit time. I can still enjoy dessert, but in a lighter way.

The easiest, 2 step, 3 ingredient dessert! And it's a skinny dessert!

Speaking of Spring, I’m so excited for it to be getting warm outside. The babe loves being outside and going on walks. When he was born last August, I took him out just about every single day. We have some gorgeous trails and parks here, so we would go for long walks. He loved it and it’s one of my favorite things to do.

Well, running if I had the choice, but until I have a jogging stroller…walking is great.

And now this time around he’ll actually be able to sit up and see the scenery a bit better. Can’t wait!

I’m also going to be posting some more salad recipes. I’ve been experimenting lots and can’t wait to share some of the salads I’ve come up with. So you can eat a big salad and then have this skinnier dessert. Win, win!

Skinny Peach Cobbler Recipe

So let’s talk this cobbler. It’s incredibly simple. Just three easy ingredients – 10 calorie 7up, 1 yellow cake mix, and loads of frozen peaches. I used 10-calorie 7Up in this recipe, but there are lots of other great 10 calorie soda flavors to chose from to lighten up your desserts.

I made this dessert a peach cobbler, but the peaches could be swapped out for a different fruit or berries – just make sure you have the same amount that the recipe calls for.

This cobbler was done in a large 12-inch cast iron skillet. You can use a 9 x 13 pan if you’d rather. Both work, I just like the richness of flavor a skillet brings. The fruit fills up the bottom of the pan or skillet. In another bowl the 10 calorie 7Up and (dry) cake mix get stirred together. The cake mix and soda mixture get poured on top of the frozen peaches and cover them completely. Then it’s ready to go into the oven!

First the skillet gets covered with foil and then baked for about 20 minutes. Then the foil gets removed and 30-35 minutes later (or until a fork inserted in the cake comes out clean) the cobbler is ready to be removed. Let it cool for a few minutes and solidify and then it’s ready to be served!

Mmmmmmmm. Mmmmm. Good!

    Whoa! I can’t believe this is only three ingredients! I’ve seen several “skinny” recipe using zero calorie sodas and I think it’s an awesome way to lighten up desserts! I haven’t really tried it out for myself, though, so I’ll have to give it a shot! This cobbler looks amazing and like the perfect way to celebrate the first day of spring! :)

    Your photos are gorgeous, Chelsea! So happy you can get out for warmer walks with your son soon. I just love springtime and can’t wait to get back to OH in July to visit my folks. Who knows, maybe I’ll see you around?! Have a beautiful week.
