They can be found on the web, in books, and even in some fast food restaurants! But do they actually taste good? Is there a way to replicate the rich flavor of the real thing without using sugar?

Most sugar free vegan desserts are desserts that have no sugar added to them. There are two kinds of sugar-free desserts: lactose free and cholesterol free. Lactose free is created by removing the lactose from the ingredients of the desert. The most commonly used sugar substitutes are brown rice syrup and agave nectar. Both these sweeteners come from sugarcane juice. It is best to read all food labels before buying a product that lists sugar substitute as one of their ingredients.

Dessert Cream

If you really want to recreate the taste of a sugar-free dessert, then you might want to go for a dessert cream. Cream is a mixture of cocoa solids and water. Just like its sugar substitute cousin, it too comes from sugarcane juice. Some people may be allergic to milk or cream and cannot eat either of those products, but they can still enjoy sugar free desserts. Even if they cannot eat the product themselves, they can still enjoy it in the form of a dessert cream.

In addition to being able to enjoy sugar free desserts, you can also make them at home. There is nothing better than savoring an ice cold glass of orange juice on a hot day, or enjoying a bowl of warm sorbet with a fresh fruit dip. Homemade sugar free ice cream is the perfect alternative to store bought versions. You just have to mix the ingredients and freeze the mix.

Many Websites That Provide Tips

There are many websites that provide tips on how to create sugar-free desserts. A quick search will yield hundreds of hits. Some are good, some are not so good, but there are dozens of websites that claim to offer the ultimate sugar free recipes. The only problem with such recipes is that they usually taste bland or like they have been cooked using a cooking appliance instead of a professional food mixer.

It can be very disappointing when you find out that a recipe you thought was simple and suitable for your sugar free dessert turns out to be something more difficult than it looked. The good news is that you can still replicate any of these treats. You just need to know the right ingredients and you can use your own recipes. However, the last thing you want to do when making a sugar free dessert is end up adding more sugar to what you already have.

Does Not Include Any Sugar, Honey, Or Agave Nectar

A perfect recipe to make a sugar free cake is one which does not include any sugar, honey, or agave nectar. If it does, you need to eliminate these items from your list of ingredients. Otherwise, you can go ahead and add in your own. The reason why you should not do this is that you need to add enough sweeteners to the mix to counteract the effect of the cream that will be added later.

For the frosting, try using a dessert mix with no sugar added to bring out the richness of the maple syrup. To bring out the flavor of the chocolate, you need to add in more of the dark chocolate chips. This allows the cream to melt and create a smooth chocolate flavor. 

Conclusion

Another simple tip that is often overlooked, is to remember that you need to wait at least five minutes for the cake to cool off before you run the hot water bath for twenty minutes to remove the excess moisture. This will ensure that the sugar free icing has enough time to set and that it will smooth out as well as possible.
