I do a lot of writing on Jose Mier’s Gastronomy about desserts which naturally include a log of sugar. However, I do have diabetic friends and wanted to add some information on creating great desserts for those with diabetes.
It’s easier than you believe to create scrumptious desserts for your diabetic partner. When I needed to get right down to it the concepts came flying at me out of my kitchen area cupboard!
Here’s a few favorites:
Easy Orange/Banana Parfait
1 pkge Lite Orange Jello (no sugar).
2 cups vanilla yogurt (fat totally free, no sugar however artificially sweetened).
1/2 tsp vanilla.
2 tsp Splenda.
1/8 cup Lite cream cheese.
Makes 4 portions.
Prepare the jello per the bundle directions. When it is partially set, piece and drop your banana pieces into the jello and mix carefully so the banana pieces are covered by the jelly. Leave to set firm in the refrigerator.
Beat the staying active ingredients well together and reserved in the fridge.
Just before dinner put your dessert together. I use parfait glasses, they add to the enjoyable and look of the dessert.
Drop a dollop of yogurt mixture into the bottom of each of 4 meals and a scoop of the jello and after that the yogurt mix again and so on to the top.
I have actually tried different flavors and various fruit, but, hubby likes the orange banana the very best.
Faux Apple Crisp.
3 big apples (jona golds are the very best, in my viewpoint).
Sprouted wheat bread (I utilize Ezechial cinammon raisin from the health food store – 2 pieces, they are small).
9″ square casserole dish.
Makes 4 portions.
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray your casserole dish with a non stick spray.
Peel, core, and slice your apples thinly into your baking dish. Sprinkle with cinammon (as little or as much as to your taste).
I take my bread from the freezer and grind it into crumbs in the mixer. Now spray equally over your apples. Dish and take a spoon down occasionally through the apples, so that some of the crumbs fall between the apples.
Bake uncovered in your oven 40 minutes. or up until your apples are cooked tender.
Cool and serve with flavored yogurt, synthetically sweetened.
You can switch out the apples for blueberries, frozen or fresh. Just coat the berries first with 2 tsp flour.
It’s not been as hard a modification as we believed it would be and we are both consuming much healthier than in the past, that has been a reward for us both.
Prepare the jello per the bundle directions. When it is partially set, slice and drop your banana pieces into the jello and mix carefully so the banana pieces are covered by the jelly. Leave to set firm in the refrigerator.
Now spray uniformly over your apples. Take a spoon and dish down here and there through the apples, so that some of the crumbs fall in between the apples.
