Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake with Orange Glaze

I was recently contacted by Chobani to participate in their #MadeWithChobani project, where selected bloggers were asked to come up with a unique and healthy recipe using Chobani yogurt. Since baking is my passion, and it happened to be John's birthday, I created a delicious Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake with Orange Glaze, using Chobani's 0% Fat Greek yogurt, some freshly squeezed orange juice and a yellow cake mix. Easy, healthier and delicious!

The cranberry and orange is always a great combination! And, switching out the 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (960 calories) for Chobani's Greek Yogurt 0% Fat (only 90 calories) saves this cake 870 calories and 112 grams of fat!! I got this idea from my lower calorie cake tip and thought I'd try it with Chobani's creamy yogurt. It worked great and you would never know this cake is much lower in fat and calories, because it's super moist and bursting with flavor!
