Dessert and diabetes can become quite tricky when you are a hardcore fan of sweet-treats. Don’t worry we got you covered and now you can leave room for desserts.
Desserts and diabetes sadly don’t co-exist together. Even it is generally encouraged that people with diabetes should avoid sugars and carbohydrates, which becomes quite tricky when you are a hardcore fan of sweets. But recent studies have shown that the amount of sugar a diabetic person consume decides whether it’s harmful or not. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), if you have diabetes, you can absolutely include sweets and desserts in your diet, as long as they’re part of a healthy eating plan and you don’t over indulge.
Therefore, a healthy diabetic diet is all about balance, so consider cutting back on other carbs during the meal to leave room for desserts. Here is list of 5 recipes of some low-carb diabetic desserts that will surely satisfy your sweet-tooth.
1. Grilled Peach-Tart
Who thought fruits can also be grilled as this recipe is not only unique but is also healthy to eat. Freshly sliced peaches already have natural nectarine and grilling them for 5 mins with apricots adds a caramelization that intensifies their flavour. It is super easy to make which will surely satisfy any sweet-tooth.
2. Oats Apple-Phirni
This low-carb bowl can be your delicious treat. Made with coarsely crushed oats and apple with little honey which is boiled in low-fat milk until it is thick. This recipe is really a full-proof guilt free dessert.
3. Chocolate Greek Yogurt Ice-Cream
Ice-cream can sound sinful but this recipe is simply heavenly. Greek yogurt has been always considered as a healthy substitute of various diets and combining with small amount of dark chocolate and choice of your fruits can provide immense flavours that can calm your cravings as well as keep you healthy.
4. Chia-Banana Pudding
This scrumptious pudding is the perfect dessert to make any time of the day as it is effortless. All we need is to blend banana and low-fat milk together with a drizzle of honey and serve it with few grains of chia seeds on top. It is a perfect combination of health and taste.
5. Bowl of Flavours
Fruits can do wonders when it comes to sweets as they already have natural sweeteners that can be satisfying to indulge after a heavy meal. This is a quick recipe where you need to put all your favourite fruits together like strawberry, mangoes, blueberries, watermelon, grapes and more with a little drizzle of jaggery syrup.
Remember quantity is the key, don’t over indulge!
