175 Natural Sugar DessertsAdd to Recipe Box
175 Natural Sugar Desserts is a wonderful cookbook for those of us wanting to cut down on or eliminate sugar from our diets.
These are homemade desserts and baked goods for more health-conscious people.
The authors, Angelina and Ari Dayan, show us how to remove sugar and still get great flavors.
Each recipe uses the natural sweetness of fruits and other natural ingredients like honey and maple syrup (still high on the glycemic index), agave syrup, stevia and xylitol, a naturally occurring sugar substitute found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables (and all three much lower on the glycemic index).
Here are some of the sumptuous dessert recipes offered:
These recipes range from the everyday to ones for special occasions. Here are some examples of what is in this fantastic cookbook:
- Tahiti tart
- Berry tartlets
- Chestnut and chocolate crepe Napoleon
- Light scones
- Cherry cobbler
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Magic mud cake
- Carrot cake with mascarpone
- Chocolate hazelnut mousse
- Panna cotta
- Coffee ice cream
- Orange granita
- Ginger mango compote
- Cajun-style roasted pineapple slices
The book is jam packed with helpful tips and techniques. In addition, there is valuable information on using alternative sweeteners.
I especially love the fact that when a recipe is suitable for Stevia, a natural, 0 carb sweetener, the authors give you detailed information about how to substitute it for the sweetener called for in the recipe.
That’s a big plus for diabetics!
This one is a real keeper for me.
