These sugar free desserts prove that you can make amazing sweets without sugar! From cakes to frozen treats, there are over 40 recipes to choose from!
For those who follow a sugar free diet, desserts can certainly play a significant role in it.
There is a misconception that diets void of sugar means that the diet is void of dessert. This is far from the truth, and actually, some of the most delicious sweets and treats are completely sugar free.
See, natural sweeteners like erythritol, monk fruit sweetener, and allulose have become mainstream and are easy to find at grocery stores. These sweeteners have zero calories and zero sugar, and don’t affect blood sugar levels.
These sweeteners are MUCH better for you than artificial kinds, like Splenda and sucralose. They don’t result in you craving extra sweets and all of them can replace sugar in your favorite desserts seamlessly.
Since starting a sugar free diet, I’ve been enjoying all my favorite desserts every single day, and you can too!
What is the best sugar free dessert?
While there are plenty of sugar free desserts out there, the best and easiest one to make is a sugar free vanilla mug cake. It takes less than a minute to make and uses simple ingredients. It’s moist, fluffy, and has no sugar. Here is how you’ll make it.
- All purpose flour– Also known as plain flour or white flour. You can use oat flour, but you will need to double the milk used to ensure the dessert doesn’t dry out.
- Sugar free sweetener– I like using a brown sugar substitute, but any sugar substitute will work (provided it is granular like sugar).
- Baking powder– Gives the dessert some rise and fluffiness.
- Oil- Any neutral flavored oil works, like canola, vegetable, or safflower.
- Milk of choice– I used unsweetened almond milk but any milk works.
- Sugar free chocolate chips– Optional, but I love to stir through some sugar free chocolate chips on top.
Start by whisking together the flour, sweetener, and baking powder. Add the oil and milk and whisk until smooth. Fold through the chocolate chips, if using them.
Now, transfer the batter into a greased mug or microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the dessert for 50-60 seconds, or until just cooked on top. Remove from the microwave and enjoy immediately.
