5 Ideas for Healthy and Delicious-Diabetes friendly Desserts

by IBD Medical on March 13, 2023


Living with diabetes does not mean you have to give up on desserts. With a little creativity and some healthier ingredient swaps, there are many delicious dessert options that people with diabetes can enjoy without causing a spike in blood sugar levels. Here are five ideas for desserts for people living with diabetes:


  1. Sugar-Free Chocolate Pudding: Chocolate lovers can still enjoy a creamy and delicious pudding without the added sugar. Simply use sugar-free chocolate chips or cocoa powder and a low-calorie sweetener such as stevia to sweeten the pudding. You can also use unsweetened almond or coconut milk instead of dairy milk for a dairy-free and lower-carb option.


  1. Fruit Salad with Yogurt: A colourful fruit salad can be a refreshing and healthy dessert option. Mix together your favourite fruits such as berries, kiwi, melon, and grapes and serve with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in sugar, making it a great alternative to sugary whipped cream.


  1. Low-Carb Cheesecake: Cheesecake lovers can still indulge in a delicious and creamy dessert with a low-carb and sugar-free cheesecake recipe. Use almond flour or coconut flour for the crust and a low-carb sweetener such as erythritol or monk fruit for the filling. You can also use low-fat cream cheese and Greek yogurt to reduce the fat and calories.


  1. Baked Apples: Baked apples are a warm and comforting dessert option that is also low in sugar. Simply core and slice an apple, sprinkle with cinnamon and a low-calorie sweetener such as stevia and bake in the oven until soft and caramelized. You can also add chopped nuts or dried fruit for added texture and flavour.


  1. Frozen Yogurt Bark: Frozen yogurt bark is a fun and easy dessert that is perfect for hot summer days. Mix together plain Greek yogurt, a low-calorie sweetener, and your favourite mix-ins such as berries, nuts, and coconut flakes. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Break the frozen yogurt into pieces and serve as a healthy and refreshing snack or dessert.


People living with diabetes can still enjoy delicious and satisfying desserts with some healthy ingredient swaps and portion control. The key is to choose low- sugar and high-fibre ingredients and to watch portion sizes. It is also important to work with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian to develop a personalised meal plan that meets your individual needs and preferences.
