This is one of the recipes I was considering having at my wedding (eons ago). It's relatively cheap, easily multiplied, and is a beautiful color. It would also be great for celebrating baby's arrival or a graduation, since there is no alcohol. Passive time is chill time.
The other day I got 5 cans of Splenda-sweetened cherry pie filling on the discount aisle at the market. Who knows why it was on discount, but I snatched it up like it was going out of style. I came up with these popsicles because you can't buy this kind of decadence and I was craving something cold and special.
It is a variation on a cucumber salad my grandmother always makes in the late spring and summer. Of course, she uses real dill out of her garden. In any case, my dad is now diabetic and so we made some substitutions. It is a refreshing addition to any meal.
This was a WeightWatchers recipe that I modified to make it more diabetic friendly. The original recipe called for all purpose flour, brown sugar, butter and an egg. I mixed the flours, used natural unsweetned applesauce for the butter and egg substitute for the egg. Also, the molasses was cut from 1/3 cup to 2 tablespoons.
My favorite flavor Jell-o is either raspberry or cherry, I can't decide. This dessert is so easy and really cheap, that it don't matter what flavor Jello you use. I also like the shortbread crust with a twist: brown sugar! And it's fancy enough for company and cheap and easy enough for a Monday night dinner dessert. I guess that's why it's one of my favorite desserts. See my notes at the bottom about making this recipe diabetic friendly.
I ripped this one right off the Crystal Light website. I LOVE any kind of frozen treat year round. This one is great because it's a tasty alternative to doing without and you don't even need an ice cream maker. I love raspberry, but I'd be willing to bet the other flavors are great too!
Love Iced Tea but can't have all the sugar. This is a great tea! You may need to adjust the Splenda & Crystal Light to suit your tastes. I normally use 1/2 tub of the Crystal Light because DH doesn't love lemon.
This pie is great for Diabetics! No sugar added.My kids who are teenagers love this pie! You can double this recipe and put the pie in a spring-form pan for larger gatherings. Otherwise just use a deep-dish pie pan. This recipe was given to me by sister-in-law Gabrielle.
This is wonderful for someone like me that LOVES the creamy dishes. Alfredo sauce as we all know is not the healiest food to eat, and being that I love fetticuine alfredo I had to find an alternate way of making it. Plus with a hubby with lactose issues, I really missed having this dish. Thankfully I was watching the Dr. Oz show when I came home from work and saw them cook up this recipe. It doesn't taste bad at all for being considered a lower in fat type of dish.
