No Crust, Black Grape Chiffon Dessert

Who say's we can't have dessert?

Ok, so once in a while even diabetics crave a dessert. And we can have one. Especially if we count those carbs and save them for dessert. I don't make this often, however, if I do make this dessert I don't have any bread, pasta, fruit or starchy vegetables with my meal. Than I can enjoy the grapes and don't worry about the corn starch used in the recipe. Besides, when you cut the grapes in half, you really aren't having too many anyway.

I am constantly looking for ways to cut the carbs from my meals. I stay on my diet most of the time. I know that if we go to a wedding or out for a rare meal at a restaurant, then I can share a dessert or eat a piece of bread with my meal. As long as it is a once in a while thing. Like I said, I don't make this dessert often so I can have it guilt free and enjoy it for what it is.

Recipe for: Diabetic Friendly Black Grape Chiffon Dessert

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup sugar substitute

3 Tablespoons Corn Starch

1 small packet of Sugar Free Raspberry Gelatin

2-3 cups cut black seedless grapes

1/4 cup cream or whole milk (organic, optional)

In a saucepan add the water, sugar substitute and corn starch. Put the heat on Med./High. Stirring often until it thickens. Take the pan off the heat, stir in the gelatin and let it cool for 15 minutes. Add the grapes then add the cream (or milk.) Put in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Serve with a drizzle of cream or milk. Serves 6-8.

I didn't want to put this recipe in a pie crust but you can if you want to. Then you can make it fancy with whipped, low fat, topping. I just like it this way.

Until we meet again... Francesca27
