Some of you know that I am a diabetic and some don’t. The journey hasn’t been easy, but it won’t take you over if you let it. I found five alternatives that I use to cook that still taste sweet and it’s been great!

I actually found way more than five alternatives, but today we will focus on five.

  • Whole Earth Sugar Alternative

    When I cook with anything dealing with sugar, this is what I use. It’s a zero sugar, plant based sugar alternative. It seriously bakes like sugar and is sweet as well.

  • Califa Farms Oat Creamer

    If you’re a diabetic, but a coffee drinker, sugar can really stop you from drinking it. Between the previous sugar blend and/or this creamer, you should be in good standing with your levels. This creamer tastes good, plus it only has 1g of sugar per serving.

    Califia Farms Vanilla Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Oat Coffee Creamer - 25.4 fl oz

    The planet is having a love affair with oat milk, for good reason. Califia Farms Vanilla Oat Creamer has the creaminess of dairy milk and a delicate, malty sweetness due to the starches naturally present in oats. Califia Farms Vanilla Oat Creamer takes oat milk's best qualities and amplifies them in this velvet-textured, slightly sweet, vanilla non-dairy creamer.

  • Swerve Brown Sugar Alternative

    A lot of recipes do require brown sugar. I had to find a good tasting alternative that still had a 1:1 ratio when cooking. This brown sugar alternative was absolutely amazing. It’s the only one that I use.

  • Good Pop Ice Cream

    Dairy free is a really good way to go whether you’re a diabetic or not. Either way, I looked for an ice cream that I could eat that wouldn’t spike my sugar. I am a huge cookies and cream fan and these did the trick!

  • Califa Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk

    On this diabetic journey, I decided to start small when it came to switching out things in my diet. I started switching my milk, sugar, condiments, etc. This milk was the closest tasting, for me, to milk that I enjoyed. I cook with it and it continues to cut even more sugar out of my diet.
