The ADA Approves Low Carb Dessert Recipes

Why did it take so long to approve a low sugar / low carb diet for diabetes, it just makes sense!

The American Diabetes Association changes its viewpoint on low carb diets in 2008 now stating “low carbohydrate diets might seem to be a logical approach to lowering postprandial glucose”. Last year the ADA 2007 report stated that low carb diets were not recommended in the management of diabetes.

Low Carb Chinese Dessert Recipe

This low carb dessert recipe is a cool refreshing snack!

Serving Size: 8
Preparation Time: 90 minutes


1/2 cup splenda
1 stick agar*
1 cup water
1 3/4 cups half and half (50% water/cream)
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla
11 oz mandarin oranges, canned

Soak the agar-agar in the water in a pot for 30 minutes, then bring to a boil and stir to dissolve. Add the milk and splenda and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often. Add the almond extract and vanilla. Pour into an 8 × 8" 200x200 pan and chill thoroughly in the refrigerator. Cut into triangles and serve with the Mandarin oranges.

*Agar-agar is a seaweed extract that can be found in featherweight rectangular sticks in Chinese markets. It functions like gelatin, albeit with somewhat more flavor interest.
