I have taken this pie to many parties and functions. Unless asked, I don't let anyone know it's sugar free and they love it anyway. I got this from a cookbook of diabetic recipes which I lent to a co-worker and she never gave it back before she moved. I found the recipe again on the Equal website. (Whoops, forgot to put the word BAKED after the pie crust. It would be a little gross if the crust was raw. lol)!
I love pumpkin pie but do not like the crust. My mom use to get mad at me because I would eat the filling of the pie and not the crust. She said that was the hardest part of the pie to make, and I would throw it away. I came up with this recipe that tastes like pumpkin pie without the crust. My family loves this.
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!
Lemon Meringue pie is one of my Mom's favorites, but being a diabetic it's not the best for her. Found this lite version in "Taste of Home" magazine and anxious to try it for her. States the diabetic exchange is 1 starch, 1 fat and 1/2 fruit. I can't vouch for that as I don't know how it's figured, but am going to try this just for her. Prep time does not include chilling time. ETA: Corrected size of pudding and jello.
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.
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.
Being Italian, I have a ton of family recipe's that have been handed down for generations that I love, but since I'm getting older, I have started to now play with them and make healthier versions. This is a true NY style cheese cake made with Ricotta, but i eliminated the sugar and some of the fat without compromising the taste. This is a dense, but light, cheesecake that you can serve as is or with fruit topping. I hope you enjoy as much as my family has. You really do have to refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours for it to firm up.
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.)
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.
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!
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.
