Diwali is the biggest festival celebrated in India, and while the world thinks it’s about celebrating the glorious return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after defeating Ravana for Lord Krishna’s victory over demon Narakasura or even just bursting crackers. For someone with a sweet tooth, Diwali is just another excuse to nibble on some sugary treats. And who can blame them, the most common tradition of Diwali is to give each other boxes of sweets. Now, if you are someone who is battling diabetes, this festive season is particularly difficult to keep your sugar levels in check.
That’s why we created this list of 5 sugar-free sweets to get you into a festive mood without compromising on your health.
Grilled Almond Burfi
This delicious sugar-free indulgence is made with just three ingredients, Almonds, Khoya, & artificial Sweetener (optional). It takes only 20-30 minutes to prepare.
Dry Fruits Ladoo
If desserts could be healthy, this laddo will be it. They are gluten-free and packed with protein. They are made with almonds, walnuts, pistachio, cashew, dates and anjeer. You can add a little bit of honey to bind them together and make them sweet. Or you can bind them with ghee.
Phirni, also known as pudding in English, is a popular Indian delicacy made with milk, saffron, jaggery, rice, pistachio, and cardamom powder. The saffron in the dish makes it healthy for the heart because of the antioxidants present in them.
Flax Seed Laddoos
Flax seeds might look like ordinary grains but they come with an array of health benefits. Crushed flax seeds combined with broken wheat flour, almond, pistachio, cardamom powder, and ghee makes this dish unconventional but great in terms of nutrition.
Malpua is a desi version of pancakes, and this variant is made with Ragi Flour, Oats, and optional sweetener. Traditionally, Malpua is fried in oil but, in the interest of being healthy, you can shallow fry them in a pan with less oil.
While these are some great sweets to substitute with the sugar intensive sweets you would normally consume, there are times when we feel out of control and give in to the sweet cravings. But worry not, for times like these, we have your back.
