    Default Help from Diabetics, please

    I have found myself needing an easy dessert for a diabetic. My DH has invited a fishing buddy to dinner when we are in Canada. We stay at a cabin in a resort it has all the things I would need to cook. But I can't think of recipe to make. I am making crockpot pork roast/sauerkraut, veggies, potatoes and unsweetened applesauce. Can anyone help with ideas or websites I can look at? Thanks for the help.

    Jello instant pudding, sugar free and add sliced banana. Is there such a thing as sugar free vanilla wafers, maybe another type sugar free cookie to make it banana pudding?

    edit to add that I am not diabetic but have friends who are

    You can actually get sugar-free cake mixes now too. Sugar free coolwhip makes a nice frosting.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    Angel food cake is diabetic friendly and fruit over the top is good as long as you don't oversweeten it. Think strawberry shortcake or peach. Macaroons are okay for diabetics too.

    Thanks for all your great suggestions. I'll check out the mixes, but I can have a precooked Angel food cake and a bunch of fresh fruit to serve over it with a bit of sugar free Cool Whip. didn't know that they made that. Guess I didn't even think about just serving fresh fruit. That would be good too. Thanks again.

    There are some pretty good no sugar added ice creams available. A summer treat for us-both DH and I are diabetic-is a sugar free brownie (Pillsbury makes a mix for this) with a scoop of Bunny Tracks ice cream on top.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Make this recipe: https://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe...dessert-100235

    Use sugar free pudding mix and leave out the marsh mellows. Serve over Angel Food cake.

    I have made this several times and people are always asking for the recipe.

    I am diabetic in Canada, we are not allowed to have more than seven grams of sugar. We are told to stick to fresh fruit for dessert and not too much of that. Best to put a plate of fresh fruit and let the person help themselves, he may not eat any. Depends on how high his sugar is that day. I eat very little fruit, puts my sugars up, diabetics are used to having no desserts. My DR once told me that I could eat Angel Food cake, I checked the sugar of it recently and it was 23 grams of sugar. That said, I know the US has a lot more sugar free products then we do, but sugar is in everything even meat. I would not serve him BBQ sauce.
