As a diabetic you’re often told to stay away from sugary foods, which can make choosing a dessert option pretty tricky. Either you skip the sweet course altogether or go for the bland and boring fruit salad.

That’s why we’re here to set you straight, and give you some deceptively delicious diabetic-friendly dessert options!

Banana, walnut, sultana and orange cake – This is a great, nutty, sweet cake to whip up if you’re entertaining. Not only does it taste great, but it looks pretty wow-worthy too!

Chocolate mousse – A super easy, light dessert option which uses up some surprising ingredients.

Chewy chocolate meringue swirls – The double-whammy, ideal for diabetics and coeliacs alike!

Mini Tiramisu pots – Don’t be fooled by how festive this delicious dessert is decorated — this creamy, coffee flavoured treat can be enjoyed all year round.

Spiced dark chocolate tartlettes – If ever you’re craving an after dinner (lunch, tea or anytime really!) treat then these are the ones to go for.

Raspberry lemon cheesecake cups – They may be small, but they are mighty! Again, another great option if you’re entertaining a crowd or hosting a party.
