Sugarless Snacks that taste great?
I have to admit that when I heard about snack recipes that featured no sugar I was a little skeptical about how the end product would taste.
After all, sugar makes the world go around, or so you might think after spending most of your life scarfing down an endless supply of snack types made with processed sugar.
But there is an alternative to the use of sugar in snacks.
At least, this is what Carolyn Hansen says in her books found at Blended Bites. Nature has come up with some nifty alternatives that are actually quite healthy for us, and which can be used to impart all the sweetness you might otherwise miss in the absence of a dose of sugar.
Dates turned out to be a good way to naturally sweeten the recipes for the desserts and snacks that appear in Carolyn’s books.
Another alternative that most of us are familiar with is honey.
Honey is also an excellent natural sweetener that appears in many of Carolyn’s recipes, including those for tempting cheesecake delights that you can eat without the least pang of guilt. Yes, that recipe for a pink Strawberry Fields Forever cheesecake concoction is sure to become one of your favorites.
All done without sugar. Even without flour or butter. After all, who needs high-cholesterol butter in their diet when almond butter and coconut butter can be used instead?
Go check out Carolyn’s site now and tell me that those images of the Strawberry Fields Forever cheesecake and the Carob Fudge don’t make your mouth water.
The great thing about these recipes is that they are not just put together with ingredients that are good for you, but they are easy to make AND they do not require any cooking on your part.
If you know how to use a blender, Carolyn says, you can easily follow her directions and churn out a plate full of yum yum in no time.

Trust me, if you like to eat, this is something that is worth your time – especially if you would not mind losing a few pounds by eating stuff that tastes like it was designed to put on the pounds, not take them off!
