Healthy desserts for diabetes
Despite what most people may think, diabetics can have their cake and eat it, too. All it takes is substituting high-sugar and high-calorie conventional baking agents with low glycemic offerings.
Let’s dive right into some luscious desserts that diabetics can enjoy, guilt-free....
To make a healthier, low-sugar version of hot chocolate, you’ll want to find a replacement for conventional chocolate syrup, which, in a small two tbsp. serving size, contains 24 grams of sugar. One of the best replacements is raw cacao, which is the unprocessed form of chocolate. Cacao contains health-promoting antioxidants. Natural cacao that has not been refined, and at most, minimally processed, in dry powder form, contains a whopping 17 grams of protein and 29 grams of fiber, which is more than 100 percent of the daily recommended value of dietary fiber.
The massive amount of fiber reduces the net sugar load of cacao to 2 grams. Raw cacao is also very rich in iron. Don’t let the seven grams of saturated fat in raw cacao deter you from trying it out; saturated fat, as long as it has not been oxidized (overcooked) and is from a natural source, will help you feel full longer and also contains antioxidants.
To further reduce your sugar intake, replace regular milk, which contains 12 grams of sugar and no fiber, with unsweetened almond milk, which also makes for a great substitute for the millions of Americans that cannot digest milk protein (casein).
You’re still going to need a sweetener alternative. Opt for stevia, which is scientifically proven to be approximately 40 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). Stevia is all-natural, plant-derived and does not raise blood sugar levels.
There are countless dessert recipes that can be transformed from love-handle bloating indulgences, into low-sugar but equally sweet and tasty alternatives. Take chocolate rice pudding, for example. Regular white rice contains over 50 grams of carbohydrates. If you want to enjoy a rice pudding that won’t quickly convert into sugar and end up being stored as fat in your body, replace regular rice with Miracle Rice, which is made entirely of fiber and contains no calories!
Using the sweetener alternatives above for hot chocolate: unsweetened almond milk, stevia, raw cacao powder, and, adding pure vanilla extract, a little butter, combine these to make a great alternative to regular chocolate rice pudding, which is typically very high in sugar.
Replace regular rice with Miracle Rice to make tapioca pudding or any other variety of rice pudding.
Rice Crispy Treats Miracle Rice can also be used to replace regular rice in creating a much healthier version of rice crispy treats.

Cookies and cakes You can reduce the amount of high-glycemic white flour in any dessert by adding konjac flour from Miracle Noodle. Also called ‘glucomannan flour’, konjac has zero net grams of sugar because it contains five grams of fiber. Instead of high-sugar cornstarch, konjac flour can be used as a thickening agent for any dessert recipe. When you’re trying to improve your diabetes, every net gram of sugar and carbohydrates counts. Adding konjac flour to a recipe will significantly reduce the amount of sugar in a dessert.
