For most of us, the core concept of a dessert is its sweet flavour – and this typically means sugar! Unfortunately, having sugar-laden desserts all the time is never a good idea because it can lead to obesity, tooth decay, Type 2 Diabetes and many more severe health complications. However, this is easily corrected with SweetLife’s sugar free, dessert recipes – these are just as delicious as the originals with none of the harmful health effects. The recipes can also be used as diabetic dessert recipes because there is no everyday sugar in them!

Sugar free and gluten free desserts have been around for thousands of years; leavened bread with honey and goats’ cheese was in fact, the original cheesecake! But these days, sugar free and gluten free recipes for desserts have become infinitely more sophisticated, with replacement natural sweeteners like xylitol able to handle complex interactions and baking processes.

Our no added sugar dessert recipes are carefully selected from the most popular traditional desserts and classics. We have health-conscious light dessert recipes, luxurious and decadent indulgent recipes, as well as other exciting contemporary dessert recipes that embrace the sugar free lifestyle. Browse our range for some great ideas and handy hints, or check out our Perfect Sweet® Bake Mixes for easy, ready to go packaged sugar free and gluten free dessert mixes.

  • Weight Loss

    Most of us want to lose weight at some point in our lives, and get fitter. Xylitol products make it much easier for you to whittle down your waistline because the natural sweetener has approximately 75% less carbohydrates and 40% less calories than sugar.

  • Healthy Living

    Xylitol is a perfect sugar free alternative for anyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle and feel good every day. It is one of the best presents Mother Nature can give our bodies and can be used in place of sugar and artificial sweeteners.

  • Diabetes

    Xylitol is diabetic friendly. The natural sweetener is metabolized without insulin, thereby creating a lower glycaemic effect. In fact it has a glycaemic index of just 7. Now compare that to sugar, which has a glycaemic index of 65.

  • Gluten Intolerant

    Don’t worry if you follow a gluten-free diet and still want to enjoy cakes, desserts, chewing gum and sweets. Just because you have a sensitivity to gluten doesn’t mean you have to miss out.
