Low Carb Desserts Okay With ADA

Break out the low carb desserts!

The American Diabetes Association revises it viewpoint on low carb diets in 2008 stating “low carbohydrate diets might seem to be a logical approach to lowering postprandial glucose”. This changes from last year when the ADA stated that low carb diets were not recommended in the management of diabetes.

Okay, low carb desserts = low sugar desserts ... why did it take sooo long to approve that?

Low Carb Chinese Dessert - Almond Cream

Found this low carb chinese dessert and thought it sounded good!

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.
