Diabetic Friendly Low Sugar Pumpkin Dessert Recipes
Are you looking for diabetic friendly pumpkin dessert recipes that are lower in sugar and calories
Well, you’ve come to the right place! I love pumpkin baked goods and desserts, especially at this time of year. What would Thanksgiving be without a pumpkin dessert or two?
Here’s a great collection of diabetic-friendly pumpkin cake recipes and healthier diabetic pumpkin pie recipes for you to consider.
But what about diabetic pumpkin desserts other than these classics?
I’ve scanned the web and all my favorite light cooking recipe sites to assemble a great collection of diabetic friendly low-fat, low sugar healthy pumpkin dessert recipes: pumpkin custards, low-fat pumpkin flan, low-fat pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin pie dip, chocolate pumpkin brownie muffins, pumpkin milkshakes, pumpkin nog, lighter pumpkin trifle, pumpkin rice pudding and a lighter version of pumpkin dump cake -a pumpkin dessert recipe with yellow cake mix.
I’ve also included my favorite recipe for Easy Creamy Pumpkin Mousse that is incredibly simple and delicious. I’ve already made this twice and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. It’s from Eat What You Love: More than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat, and Calories by Marlene Koch – a great diabetic cookbook for those who strive to be healthy, yet still want to be able to indulge in sweet treats from time to time.
Here’s a helpful video demonstrating how to make an easy low calorie pumpkin mousse very similar to mine…
