Luxurious Brown Rice Pudding

This brown rice pudding and the creamy sauce that goes with it, is sugar-free, dairy-free, and egg-free and it tastes great! It is a favorite dessert of mine that has gone through many changes through the years.

Sugar Free Apple Sauce

By |October 21st, 2009|

I love sweets! I know that many others do too, as I am frequently hearing about it.

To help with those sugar cravings in a healthy way, we need to prepare nutritious sweets. I have created lots of sugar-free recipes and here is one of my favorites.

Of course, it is more nutritious to eat the fruit raw but sometimes we are looking for that comfort food that is sweet and hot. This is a good fruit sauce that does not have any added sugar and it tastes good too.
