6 Thanksgiving Desserts Recipes That People With Diabetes Can Enjoy

6 Thanksgiving Desserts Recipes That People With Diabetes Can Enjoy

If there’s any holiday that calls for pausing your diet and splurging on indulgent foods, it’s Thanksgiving. Skipping dessert just seems crazy! While it’s not too hard to bounce back from a cheat day, for those with type 2 diabetes, indulging means more than tight pants and a food coma. Holiday foods high in simple carbohydrates, like apple cake and pumpkin pie, can cause a dangerous blood sugar spike (hyperglycemia), requiring an increased insulin dosage to prevent health consequences like fatigue, headache, and excessive thirst. Frequently relying on extra insulin to correct hyperglycemia can contribute to weight gain and increased insulin resistance—two things that can worsen diabetes. Thankfully, steering clear of hyperglycemia—while still indulging in Thanksgiving desserts—is totally doable and doesn’t require you to ditch your favorite Turkey Day dishes, says registered dietitian and author of the Diabetes-Friendly Dessert Guide, Lori Zanini, RD. Staying Healthy On Turkey Day To keep blood sugar levels even-keeled, fill up on turkey and veggie sides during dinner, and then make smart decisions once the dessert spread comes out. Generally speaking, treats that get their sweetness from fruits or vegetables, like apple or pumpkin, tend to be smart choices, says Zanini, while anything that’s caramelized, browned, or glazed is typically filled with added sugars and should be avoided. But if you want to be extra-cautious, your best bet is to make a festive dessert that you know is diabetic-friendly—which is where these delicious sweets come in. Thanks to their minimal sugar content and use of alternative flours and healthy fats, these six dietitian-approved Thanksgiving desserts are ideal for people with type 2 diabetes. The best part? The other guests Continue reading >>

All-american Apple Pies Recipe - Eatingwell

All-american Apple Pies Recipe - Eatingwell

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut two apples in half crosswise (or cut top third off four very small apples). Use a melon baller or small spoon to scoop out the flesh of each apple half, leaving an -inch-thick shell. Remove and discard seeds and core. Chop apple flesh into small pieces. In a small saucepan combine chopped apple, cider, 3 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, and apple pie spice. Cook and stir over medium heat until apples are softened and liquid is thickened and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes. Return filling to apple shells. To prepare Oil Pastry: In a medium bowl stir together flour and salt. Add oil and milk; stir lightly with a fork until combined (dough will appear crumbly). Gather the mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together. Flatten into a disk, then roll out into a large circle, about 10 inches in diameter. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut four circles from the pastry. (Discard trimmings or save for another use.) Cut pastry circles into -inch-thick strips. Lay pastry strips in a lattice pattern over the top of the apples. (Or place full pastry circles over the tops of the apples and crimp edges). In a bowl whisk together the egg and remaining 1 tablespoon water. Brush egg mixture over pastry and, if desired, sprinkle with coarse sugar. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Place pies on prepared baking sheet. If using very small apples, place apple tops on foil next to pies. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until apples are soft, filling is bubbly, and crust is golden. Serve immediately. Sugar Substitute: We do not recommend a sugar sub for this recipe. You can substitute 1 rolled refrigerated pie crust ( of a 15-oz. pkg.) for the oil pastry. Continue reading >>

Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Low-carb, gluten-free and no sugar added make this a super healthy alternative to traditional apple pie! An excellent recipe the entire family will enjoy. 3 T non-hydrogenated palm shortening (or coconut oil) 5 small or 3 large apples, peeled and cubed (I used Macintosh) 1/2 C Swerve (or your choice of sweetener) Prepare crust by placing all ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender. Process until a thick ball of dough forms. Press half the dough down into a 9 inch pie pan (no need to grease it). Bring it up over the sides like you would a traditional pie crust. It will be bumpier than a traditional pie crust. Partially bake the bottom crust for 5-6 minutes in the pre-heated oven. Prepare the apple filling while you wait. Combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl and mix well until apples are completely coated. Remove bottom crust from the oven and spoon the apple filling into it, using the back of a spoon or spatula to flatten the apple surface as much as possible. Cover the top of the apples with the remaining crust in one of two ways: First, roll the crust between two large sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap until it is less than 1/4 inch thick and large enough to be placed over the pie. Alternately, simply press the upper crust down but adding small balls of dough to the top of the pie and then pushing them down together to create a thin, uniform crust over the top. Pinch together the top crust with the bottom crust. Brush beaten egg over the top of the crust, being sure not to miss any spots. Cut a few small holes in the center of the crust to release steam. Bake the pie on the middle rack for 30-40 minutes or until the crust is deep golden brown. Continue reading >>

In another bowl combine sugars,flour, cinnamon, allspice and salt. Thoroughly drain apples and let sit for several minutes to allow as much water to drain as possible. Then mix in melted butter and sugar mixture.Toss to coat apples well. Put apples in bottom pie crust and mound into middle of pie. Take second crust and place over pie taking the bottom edges and folding them up and under top edges to seal. Make a slit in center to vent while baking.

Healthy Apple Pie Recipe

Healthy Apple Pie Recipe

Flaky homemade pie crust, sweet cinnamon apples, and buttery oatmeal crumble This homestyle healthyapple pie is good beyond words! Not weighed down by butter and sugar, the apples in this pie really shine. Last week, I took the train from DC to spend Thanksgiving with my sister in New York City. Holed up in her cozy Manhattan apartment, we watched old movies in our pajamas while eating apple pie topped with Coconut Ice Cream . Surprised at how delicate and buttery the pie turned out, my sister (who is as far away from being vegan as one could possibly get) had to ask me three separate times, Are you SURE theres no butter in this?! NO butter, NO lard, and the recipe can also be: It always shocks me to see how much butter and sugar are called for in traditional apple pie recipes. The sweet apple flavor should take center stage in an apple pie; yet these recipes add so much unnecessary fat and sugar that they completely mask the apple, and fat and sugar end up being all you can taste. Theres really no need for all those empty calories. The following healthy apple pie recipe relies on naturally sweet apples and cinnamon for sweetness, and you have the option of using stevia if you want to cut back on the sugar even further. Even if you opt to use real sugar here, the sugar will still only be around half the amount called for in traditional Dutch apple pie recipes. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving in the Big Apple than with homemade apple pie? (And by staying far away from Macys Herald Square on Thanksgiving night) P.S. My sister wasnt the only reason I was in NYC last week Ill give more details as soon as Im able, but for now I can leave you with a hint: Chocolate Covered Katiewill soon be on a television near you! Even in my sisters tiny NYC apartment where you c Continue reading >>

Paleo Apple Pie Recipe

Paleo Apple Pie Recipe

Paleo Apple Pie Recipe grain/gluten/dairy/egg/refine sugar-free Yay! Im so excited I was able to get this recipe out to you before Thanksgiving! Although the holiday is tomorrow, this Apple Pie Recipe is so easy to make that you have plenty of time. As you know, I posted the recipe for the crust last week. This crust can be used to make any of your favorite pies, so it deserved its own post. Click here to view the recipe. Youll need only 4 ingredients to make it and no eggs are needed. Back to the Apple Pie You may be wondering why I didnt give it the traditional look, coveringthe appleswith a criss-crossedcrust. There are two reasons: Number one, topping my apple pie with a streusel topping gives it an awesome crunch and texture, and it enhances the flavor. Number two, topping the pie with the streusel is so much easier and less time consuming (which Im always all about). Perhaps the only time consuming part of making this pie, is peeling and slicing the apples. But then again, theres no way around this step when making an apple pie. If you choose, you can double the recipe for the crust and use it to cover the apples. I suggest you chill half the dough in the freezer or refrigerator, so that the dough is easier to roll and handle. The apple filling is made from organic, tart grainy smith apples. You can use any apples of your preference though. The apples are coated in the most delicious caramel sauce. This is the same caramel sauce recipe I posted before on my blog, heres the link . The sauce is made with organic coconut palm sugar and coconut milk. I hope you enjoy this recipe and serve it to your friends and family this holiday season. If you do, please share your photo and feedback below in the comments section.Id love to hear from you and see your creations! Hap Continue reading >>
