I look back at what I ate as a child and I am amazed! I would have a doughnut and orange juice for breakfast, a cookie and a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, and of course dinner was never complete without dessert! As an adult I realized I had been come addicted to sugar and carbs. This was very apparent when it was necessary for me to lose weight and change my eating habits. I realized just how much I craved sugar and how much I consumed each day. After I finished this weight loss journey, I not only lost the pounds, but my cravings for sugar had also vanished!
For me, this was a choice and a good lifestyle change. For others, it is not. Diabetes is on the rise and many people have to reduce the carbs and sugar from their daily diets. That can be difficult, especially if you have loved sweet treats and carbs your whole life. It is hard to find satisfying desserts that are easy to make and require only a few ingredients.
I am sharing a delicious recipe that is one of my family’s favorites. I serve this at parties and no one even suspects it is low sugar. Did I mention it is not only a beautiful dessert, but easy and no-bake? I use premade pastry shells and fill them with a creamy, rich, almond scented filling, and top it with a drizzle of chocolate and a raspberry. Decadent and delicious! Whether you are restricting the sugar in your life or not, this indulgent recipe is absolutely delicious!
