So, between trying to eat healthier and a newly developed inability to digest dairy, I've been pretty sad about dessert lately. Eating sugar now that I've tapered off it makes me really sick, but what kind of dessert type thing can I have? I've been drinking a lot of green tea with splenda and doing the fruit for dessert thing, but I really like crunchy things too. I can eat a little bit of sugar without feeling sick, but not something chalk full of it, like a regular cookie.

There are lots of sugar-free dessert recipes out there, like this site: http://www.thatsmyhome.com/sugar-free-recipes/sugarfree-desserts.htm

If there's dairy in it, just substitute a soy product for it.

Thanks! I've been told you can't use soymilk to make boxed pudding because it wont set up, I wonder if there is any pre-made dairy free pudding out there?

Also, last night I ate a tofutti cutie (faux ice cream sandwich) which I used to think was disgusting, but it's been so long that I've been able to eat ice cream that I thought it was great! It only had 9 grams of sugar in it, and that didn't seem to upset my tummy or head!

my dad is a dentist, and has recently been promoting the use of Xylitol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xylitol.  which is spossed to be healthier for you than splenda, it's a little harder to come by though.  i've been lowcarbing it for the past several months, and my doctor gave me a great recipie for ice cream, i'm sure since you can't have dairy, you could switch to soy cream (or a heavy soy milk).  you take some frozen fruit (it has to be frozen, or this won't work), ice cubes, cream (or in your case, soy milk) vanilla, and just some sweetner to taste.  put it in a blender, and blend untill creamy and smooth.  i love it.  it's so quick and simple and it tastes EXACTLY like ice cream but without all the carbs.  i'm not sure whatelse to recommend to you.  if i come up with anything i'll tell ya.

You actually can use soymilk for boxed puddings, you just need to use less than called for.  I've tried it a few times and it's worked great for me.  I think I remember using up to a half cup less soy milk for the small package of Jello pudding, but it's been a while since I've done it, so you may want to experiment a bit.

The Silk Soymilk website suggests to use less soy milk for puddings and pie fillings (it doesn't say how much) and to add 1/4 cup cornstarch.  I've never tried this myself, so I don't know how well it turns out.

soy pudding is easy to come by, but certainly not sugar free!

ooo soy pudding is amazing. i make a pretty delicious warm cornstarch pudding that takes less than oh say, 3 minutes.
  for a quick soylicious pudding fix i fill a mug with soymilk, (for no sugar, im thinking use unsweetened soymilk and add some splenda to sweeten it up?) then in a seperate container, i mix about two tablespoons of cornstarch with some soymilk to make it liquidy. mix it into your mug of soymilk and microwave until creamy. enjoy delicious warm pudding!!!
sometimes i use a little cocoa powder to make chocolate pudding.
