As a diabetic, you might not think you can indulge in dessert. But what’s more tempting than sugary and sweet cakes, cookies, and other delicious treats?
Well, if you choose the right recipes, you don’t have to worry as much about having a “treat yourself” moment every so often. The low-carb Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes recipe by All Day I Dream About Food is a great option for diabetics who want to try a treat and still manage their blood sugar.
These Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes are tangy and sweet, but they’re also diabetes-friendly. They use almond meal instead of flour to lower the carbs, and Swerve sweetener is used instead of sugar to lower the impact on your blood sugar. Even better, these cupcakes use frozen strawberries – frozen fruit is considered a great choice by the ADA – and fresh lemon juice to prevent added sugars too.
