More and more of us are choosing to exclude sugar, gluten and dairy products from our diets, and not just because of allergies. We want to eat more healthily and feel better without having to content ourselves with dull alternatives stuffed with taste enhancers and additives.
Smart sweets includes confectionery, cakes, pastries and desserts without sugar, white flour or dairy products. The recipes are simple and do not require long lists of complicated ingredients. Some of them only need a quick stir and can be eaten as raw food while others just involve baking and can be eaten with a dollop of cream and some fresh berries. There are even recipes for tasty titbits to keep you going until dinner time when you start feeling peckish in the afternoon, titbits that are guaranteed not to set your blood sugar plummeting or get your sweet tooth going soon afterwards.
Choose between the book’s 70 delicious recipes, which include chocolate muffins, vanilla and pear cake, chocolate chai mud cake, oven-baked plums with nuts, mint truffles, pecan squares, bounty wannabees and stir-fried pineapple with coconut cream and strawberry ice cream.
