Low-carb, low-guilt dessert recipes for diabetics, or anyone on a low-carb diet.
Being diabetic is no reason to swear off desserts. (There really aren’t any good reasons to swear off desserts anyway).
We’ve scoured the endless internet and compiled a list of low-carb, low-guilt dessert ideas for you to enjoy with your darling, or just to reward yourself after a long week. These romantic goodies won’t cause a spike in your blood sugar, but we guarantee they’ll give your romance a boost:
Who doesn’t enjoy some warm, gooey, chocolatey goodness? This recipe is delectable without any added sugar, uses wholesome ingredients like 85% cocoa content chocolate, natural sugar substitutes, and only a teaspoon of flour.
If you’re feeling particularly lazy but still want to impress, here’s a really sexy dessert with almost zero effort (and zero sugar + carbs) needed. Talk about win-win!
Soufflés shouldn’t have to be enjoyed only at the restaurant. Bring these airy and soft chocolatey delights to your home, without the sugar, gluten, or other blood-sugar spiking ingredients.
Chocolate, fudge, pudding, mint. We’ve never seen so many awesome words together in a sentence. Made with mascarpone cheese, unsweetened cocoa, and fresh mint, this would definitely satisfy any mint chocolate lover.
We always love a classic carrot cake; moist, rich, cinnamon-ny. This version cuts out all the bad stuff like added sugar, highly-processed flours and the like, but leaves in all the wholesome goodness of a carrot cake.
Not an expert dessert chef? We have the answer! This crusty cheesecake is super easy to make, requires minimal baking, and low in carbs and sugar! There’s even a crust-less option if you don’t feel inclined to bake.
There’s nothing like a tiramisu to add a touch of class to your evening. Krista’s version uses no flour or added sugar while still being rich and luxurious with mascarpone, cream, coffee and egg yolks. This definitely isn’t low-cal, but it’s diabetic-friendly and as a treat, pretty terrific.
We’ll definitely dig into all those layers of red velvety goodness slathered with a low-fat cream cheese frosting. This decadent cake uses coconut flour, which adds to the richness of the cake, but subtracts from the carb content, making it a healthier version to scarf on. The recipe makes a huge cake, so we suggest sharing the love.
Sweet, yet tart, these blueberry bars are a burst of contrasting flavours on your taste buds. Packed with nutritious blueberries and lemons, and sweetened with your choice of a sugar substitute, this dessert makes an awesome post-dinner treat.
Using a sugar substitute and real homemade berry compote, this low-carb variant of the delicious Italian dessert melts hearts without the guilt trip. We suggest separating the panna cotta into individual moulds for an even more gorgeous end to your meal.
