Satisfy your sweet tooth with sugar-free treats
Despite the popularity of sugary treats, many health experts have noted how the increasing consumption of such products is leading to several diseases, such as diabetes. To curb the effect of sugar-based confectionaries, experts suggest sugar-free sweets that are a healthier alternative.
SUGAR FREE BESAN LADDOOS
While these come in several flavours, the most commonly available variant is besan laddoo, which is made of gram flour, ghee and sugar. Nevertheless, these days, many sweetmeat sellers have begun to offer a healthier alternative that contains little sugar, and tastes just as great.
Khajoor, or dates is the fruit from date palm trees. It’s a popular dessert choice for the calorie-conscious. You can go for delectable khajoor rolls garnished with almond slivers. The sweet is prepared with honey instead of sugar and dates, combining two naturally-sweet ingredients for a healthy after-meal snack.
ANJEER (FIG) BARFI
Anjeer, or fig is considered one of the healthiest foods in the world. It helps improve digestion and controls diabetes. This fruit can also be enjoyed in the form of anjeer barfi, an appetising treat that contains no refined sugar. These are made with cashew nuts, figs, almonds, pistachios, ghee and honey, and are a wholesome treat for both children and adults.
Fini is a traditional Rajasthani sweet. This delicacy looks like a bunch of hair due to its thin strands. It is made of flour, sugar and ghee. On the other hand, its sugar-free variant is made of honey so that you can curb your sugar intake without compromising on flavour.
