Posted on Nov 14, 2023

On World Diabetes Day, it's crucial to recognize the impact of diabetes on millions worldwide. Managing this condition doesn't mean forsaking life's simple pleasures, like relishing delicious desserts. While sugar affects blood sugar levels, it's not solely responsible for diabetes—carbohydrates play a more significant role. People with diabetes are often cautioned against sugary treats due to sugar's carbohydrate content. However, with some creativity and the right ingredients, enjoying delectable desserts safely is possible.

This World Diabetes Day, indulge guilt-free in these four delightful, diabetic-friendly desserts:

1. Berry Parfait

1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

Layer a tall glass with a tablespoon of yoghurt.
→ Alternate layers with mixed berries.
→ Repeat until the glass is full. Serve chilled!

Borosil Tip: Opt for plain Greek yoghurt for higher protein and lower sugar content. Use fresh or unsweetened frozen berries for lower sugar levels.

2. Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs

5 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tablespoons shelled hemp seeds
½ cup unrefined coconut oil (room temperature)

→ Mix in coconut oil until a paste forms. Add cream, vanilla, and stevia.
→ Shape into balls, and coat with shredded coconut.
→ Freeze for 10 mins or refrigerate for 30 mins before serving.

Borosil Tip: Experiment with almond or cashew butter. Substitute monk fruit sweetener for stevia. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for freshness.

3. Apple Crumble

4 medium apples (peeled, cored, sliced)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar substitute
