"Diabetic Pudding" is not the best way to phrase what it is that you're looking for. Being diabetic, we don't eat "diabetic foods." We eat from "sugar-free" recipes, which answers your request - just use a sugar substitute in making a dessert. Here is a start for you:

sugar free recipes | diabetic recipes | sugar free desserts recipes index 2

Good luck with your guest.

Could always just make something like an apple crumble - a low sugar version. Personally, I prefer an apple and peach crumble with extra cinnamon served with hot custard. Put a bowl of cinnamon sugar on the table for those who want a bit of extra sugar in their crumble.

While the idea of pudding is wonderful , diabetics need to remember that anything ending in OSE is going to raise your blood glucose...So making pudding with milk (lactOSE) will raise the BG for you.even if you use a sugar substitute...How about a small plate with several slices of cheese and a small apple or pear, tasty and a lovely end to a meal.

This is a fantastic chocolate pudding. It's very deep chocolatey, rich-tasting, and creamy, and very low fat. Just use a sugar substitute instead of sugar:

you can use many regular recipes and just adjust them for low carbs and no sugar. or splendia. splendia comes in brown as well. i often use it to make apple crunch. just use fresh apples. take a small amount of brown splendia and cinnamon and mix with apples. combine brown sugar spllendia, and oat meal. that will add some carbs but they are good ones. mix in butter til forms crumbs, put on top. bake til apples are done.


i even have a recipe for sugarless sugar cookies. if you want i can e mail it to you. or send in p.m. your choice.
