Recipes for Diabetic Friendly Desserts


Diabetic Friendly Cheesecake


  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup No Calorie Sweetener
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1 cup sour cram
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 21 oz. sugar free pie topping



Make the crust by mixing the graham crackers with melted butter until it is smooth. Using a spring form pan, press the crust until it covers the inside of the pan. Now, set this aside and begin making the filling by mixing the cream cheese, sour cream, flour and vanilla extract. When this is well blended, slowly add the egg substitute while stirring gently. When the filling is completely mixed, pour it into the crust.

Bake the cheesecake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Afterwards, reduce the temperature to 250 degrees F. Bake for an additional 50 minutes. The center of the cheesecake should wobble when it is done. Allow the cake to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate. Add the pie topping an hour or two before you are ready to serve.
