Diabetic Friendly Desserts

The Big Book of Diabetic DessertThese diabetic friendly desserts will surely tempt you and satisfy any sweet tooth, even if you have diabetes.  We’ve also got a few suggestion for snacks, such as hot chocolate that’s sugarless, with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and diabetic cake that will fool even the biggest sugar lover along with other great diabetic friendy recipes that will make your mouth water.  Another diabetic friendly snack is a parfait, using pudding that’s sugar-free, and layered with whipped topping that’s also sugar-free.  By the way, organic agave nectar is low glycemic and a great alternative to sugar, for most everyone.  One last quick recipe is gelatin that’s sugar-free with fruit in it.  Put the gelatin in the fridge until it’s partially set.  The fruit will float in it midway.  Even if it sinks, it all tastes good.  Use canned fruit in light or natural syrup.

Anyway, here are the recipes for those diabetic friendly desserts we promised:

Make a melon salad by using cubed honeydew and cantaloupe (melons).  Sprinkle lightly with chopped and fresh mint leaves.  Drizzle with honey or organic agave nectar and toss.  This is similar to a Middle-Eastern salad .  Other fruity recipes are yogurt-dressed fruit salad, which is strawberries, green grapes, and blueberries.  Mix a tablespoon of honey or organic agave nectar, a half cup of plain yogurt, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and one quarter teaspoon of vanilla.  Toss all carefully then chill and serve.
