This is so simple and so good, not just as frosting either!! I am a recently diagnosed diabetic with a gigantic sweet tooth, so I am always looking for goodies. I was sitting around bored and craving something sweet one day and this is what happened. This is pretty low in carbs too-- which is great for diabetics as well as low carb dieters. But beware, it is NOT low in fat!! This recipe makes a bunch, but I am pretty sure it can be reduced by parts. The serving number is a guess-- it depends on what you use this for.
This is something I like to eat for breakfast on a cold day. I keep the ingredients on hand at work so I can heat this up fresh and start the day off with a treat. It can even make a healthy dessert! I hope you enjoy!
This recipe is very versatile and can be modified easily. Use any kind of fruit you like with any kind of pudding you like. Quick, easy, and so yummy! Using sugar-free ingredients makes this a great dessert for dieters! Cooking time is actually Chilling time.
This is the sugar free version I have perfected by request. Cakes baked with Splenda stay fresher longer if unused portions are kept refrigerated. The buttermilk adds a small trace amount of sugar per serving. This base recipe is used everyday by a pastry chef to make sugar free wedding cakes, sheet cakes, petit fours, etc… I found this recipe on Obesity Help. The recipe was posted by RosieHawk. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.
When I saw these on the Splenda mailer I get in my email, I had to save it. These remind me SO much of a lemon pie. Not a chiffon fluffy lemon pie, but the ones that kinda resemble jello. Those are my favorite kind of lemon pie. I cannot wait to try them!
Diabetic exchange info: serving size: 1 2x2 square (yeah, right!), 11 g. carbohydrates, 110 calories, 0 g sugar,exchange is 1 starch 1 fat. Sounds like a winner to me!
My BF is type 1 diabetic, so I adapted my tride and true apple crisp recipe and wow! You can't even tell! Great for low-carb diets too.feel free to add some finely chopped pecans to both the aplles and the topping. My family doesn't prefer it, but it really adds a nice crunch and balance. I added the reguar full-sugar option as well.
I love apples, Gala and Granny Smith are my two favorite. You can't catch them on sale very often and that's the only time I buy them. So, this pie is pretty special. It's also pretty special because it's a diabetic pie. The Splenda is interchangeable with sugar if you are making it for a sugar-tolerant person. To kick it up a notch (even for diabetics) drizzle with caramel sauce or serve a la mode! (NOTE TO MY DIABETIC FRIENDS: I'm still working on a sugar-free caramel ice cream topping.)
I am not sure where I got this recipe, but it's saved my buns several times. When people call and ask to come over and you haven't got a thing in the world fixed, this will save your buns too. Just mix up a quick batch of cream puffs and this stuff...and they'll think you spend hours! There are variations listed at the bottom.
