With Christmas coming up shortly here’s a couple of Diabetic Friendly Desserts for those that have to watch carbs. A reader that follows my blog passed these along to me to share. He said they came from a Diabetic Cookbook that contained Splenda made desserts. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

 

Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients:

3 ounces Unsweetened Chocolate
1 cup Low Fat Milk
1/4 cup Egg Beater‘s Egg Substitute
1/2 cup Splenda Granular
1 teaspoon Corn Starch
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
3 cups sliced Strawberries
Directions:

Place chocolate and milk in a medium size saucepan. Heat over medium heat until chocolate melts.
Stir together egg substitute, SPLENDA®, corn starch and Grand Marnier in a small mixing bowl. Add to chocolate mixture. Stir constantly. Heat over medium heat while stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken (approximately 3 to 4 minutes). Remove from heat, pour into the bowl of a blender or food processor. Blend or process briefly (10 to 20 seconds) to make a more creamy texture. Pour into mixing bowl and cover.
Refrigerate chocolate mixture approximately 2 to 3 hours or until cool.
Whip cream and fold into chocolate. Refrigerate overnight to set. Will keep refrigerated for 3 days.
To serve layer strawberries and mousse in 6 all-purpose wine glasses.
Makes 6 servings.

    • I had diabetes 2 at one time. About 1 year ago they took me off the Metformin I was taking. My last visit to the doctor my Sugar was raised somewhat, hopefully I can control it and stay off the meds. Good luck to you and thank you for reading. Mark
