I found this in a Good Housekeeping magazine while on vacation at Edisto Beach, SC. This succulent dessert is low in calories, high in fiber, and is chocolate dipped. Luckily, my neighbor has a fig tree.
From Delicious Living magazine. Recipe requires at least 3 hours of freezing. The kefir I used (Nancy's brand) was peach flavored and sweetened. There are also goat's milk-based and coconut milk-based kefirs on the market. Variation: you can also make a smoothie by adding all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. This morning I made a smoothie and added one tablespoon of pomegranate molasses. If the smoothie is too thick, and a little bit of ice cold water.
I made these for my Baci ("grandmother" in Polish) because she has to watch her blood sugar. Loving her with all my being makes me worry about her well-being. I decided to try this recipe (and another Oatmeal Bar recipe) and give her an alternative to eating baked goods for a "quick fix." She preferred the other recipe and recommends this recipe to those who like Grape Nuts. She says the bars reminded her of Grape Nuts pudding.
Whole chia seeds set up and turn into gelatin and this is really delish. Best if eaten within 24 hours. I use skim milk and Splenda to reduce calories but you could use coconut milk, whole milk, almond milk, etc as well as sugar, maple syrup, agave.
Another delicious recipes that will please diners whether or not they are diabetic. With a few ingredients, plums are transformed into an elegant and flavorful dessert. This recipe comes from a special publication from Diabetic Living.
This is tooooooooooooo DIE FOR!! My mom and I can sit down and probably eat this entire thing. It is extremely simple to make and tastes wonderful. This dessert tastes best warm. It is excellent with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
This is the pie that captured my DH's heart! This is a great recipe that uses only 1 pie crust. I recommend using a deep dish pie crust to minimize spill overs.
*Pls note that the first time flour listed in the ingredients, it should be 1/3 cup flour as listed in the directions. I've tried editing this several times and it won't change.
I know people that have this with their cornflakes :)
Personaly I like them as a snack, but they are great as a quick dessert with custard or ice cream.
I pour the prunes into sterilised glass jars, and they keep for months. If you want these as gifts you can easily double the recipe.
High Octane chocolate fix, which hasn't any sugar. (as such)
can be frozen. I find it a little too rich as written, and usually fold through 1 cup of whipped cream.
I serve these in small cups (very rich) with their saucer and a cream wafer biscuit.
Although this is a wonderful ice cream recipe (IMHO), it is an old one, and contains raw egg. Please feel free to use a fresh egg substitute or pasteurized eggs in this recipe. You may leave out the egg altogether, but the texture may suffer. The "Cook time" is for the processing time of my (your) ice cream machine. The 1/2 to 1 hour "chill time" was not included in the Prep/Cook time.
These cinnamon apples taste like a cobbler or pie without the crust. I was looking for a recipe for Cinnamon apples and all I could find were recipes for baking the whole apple - not what I wanted. After much searching I finally came across this recipe - I unfortunately cannot remember the site. It can easily be reduced to 2 or 3 apples, just watch it as it cooks. We serve this over ice cream and it is delicious. It can also be used on pancakes, waffles, or all by itself.
My husband loves this one so much he asked a neighbor for it! We eat it at Thanksgiving. Although the original recipe calls it a casserole, it tastes more like a crisp to me. It's very sweet and desserty.
This recipe is a form of apple crisp that I have made since I was a teenager. It is the only one I use and it consistently tastes good...no matter what type of apples are used.
I have substituted Splenda sugar for both the brown and white sugars called for in this recipe and it comes out tasting just as good, although the 'crisp' part has a little different texture to it, but not bad. I only recommend using real butter in this recipe. This is the type of comfort food that you can have a big bowl of, climb back into bed, and eat under the warmth of the comforters when it is freezing cold outside....I love it!
I usually double the recipe and freeze one dish for use later. Just thaw in refrigerator and reheat if you want it warm.
