Sugar-Free Sweets?

This isn't exactly little-related, but lots of littles like sweets so now it's related!

 

I LOVE sweets. I have the biggest sweet-tooth. Cake, brownies, chocolate, cookies, pie, candy, ice cream, everything. Anything sugary and sweet I love. The thing is, I just found out I have high blood sugar! My doctor told me to cut back on sweets and stay away from things with added sugar. To say my heart broke is putting it lightly.  :(

 

So, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of some sugar-free sweets I should get or make. Things that taste like normal sweets without having a bunch of sugar added.

I like sweets but I make sure to eat lots of fruit each day.  Apples (Fuji, Honey crisp Opal), bananas, tangerines, oranges, mangos, grapes, strawberries, blackberries.  That will help you have something that can be a little sweet and really healthy.  Frozen mangos are good for smoothies and frozen grapes make a great snack.  I bake and make candy, so all on your list I'm pretty good at except pie crust.

Paleo (it's a diet that cuts out refined sugars entirely) desserts might be something good for you to look up if you want to cut out sugar. Just google "paleo brownies" or whatever dessert you want, and try the recipes. They're a lot healthier than traditional desserts :p

With Carbquik and sugar substitute you can make all sorts of stuff and it's really easy. The box comes with recipes on it and their website has lots too.

If you go to the candy aisle of Walmart, you can find tons of sugar free sweets. Although I am not gonna lie, chocolate without sugar tastes freaking awful. My favorite is sugar free gummy bears.

Every one of these listed below are sugars, even those "sugar substitutes". The only time natural sugars found in fruit are okay is when they are accompanied with their fiber. This is why juicing is bad however smoothies are fine. This is also the reason why nearly anything found in the center isles of grocery stores, Whole Foods (the store) included, are bad for you. Look at the label of any package and you will likely find one of these culprits below. Sugar has been proven to be more addictive then drugs such as cocaine and heroin. 

The current recommended intake of sugar is 25g (this includes natural sugars found in fruit, some have higher sugar content than others). In a 20oz bottle of soda there is 65g. Wonder why people are unhealthy?
