Many people think of sweet desserts as only being eaten by children’s dietitians alike. That is why they dismiss the existence of sugar-free desserts.
Why are sugar-free desserts not part of any diet plan? Most children cannot actually taste a sugar-free dessert. Even if they can taste it, they often cannot describe the taste of others.
They have no idea how to describe a dessert they have never tasted before. So even though sugar-free desserts are not good enough for a child, they certainly are not bad enough for you to cut them out of your diet. As long as you do not overdo it with them, sugar-free desserts should be perfect for you.
A mouth-wateringly good dessert does not come from a box of the same old boxed confectionary. The real treat has a flavor that draws you in. You just have to know how to get there. In this article, I am going to show you what it takes to give you that mouthwatering dessert without any of the sugar.
It used to be the case that sugar was the one thing that all foods had in common. But sugar-free desserts are now available. They are no longer sweets but they are so light and flavorful that you will never know they contain no sugar.
Preparation Tips For Sugar-Free Desserts
When you are preparing a sugar-free dessert, your child’s body goes into shock mode. The body will react to this sudden drop in sugar levels by having your child purge as quickly as possible. This can lead to symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mood swings, irritability, headaches, seizures, breathing problems, heart arrhythmias, and cramps.
With these symptoms, sugar-free desserts should be avoided. In fact, the best way to prepare sugar-free dessert is by using whole food ingredients.
Unsweetened, unprocessed and real foods are the key to success. Avoid sweeteners such as the artificial sweeteners that are in many sugar-free candies. These are merely sugar substitutes that are still full of calories and are not good for children’s health.
The ingredient list on a candy bar does not matter. Sugar substitutes do not count because they are not listed as such.
If you can remove all the artificial sweeteners, then you can substitute natural flavors. If you are not sure about which ones to use, then check the labels. Many of the honey-based and apple-based flavors are still sweet.
Honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and brown sugar are all examples of natural flavors. Some people add fruits to their desserts to create new flavors. Others love the combination of fruit flavors and maple syrup.
Parents want their children to have the best diet that they can provide, but it is also important that they put the diet in the proper perspective for their child’s health. Natural dessert recipes are a great way to prepare a sugar-free dessert without using any sweeteners.
