Continuing on the path of resilience to the refined sugar call throughout this festival season we successfully trudged through a few of the celebrations and are about to hit the biggest sugar loaded party of all…Diwali.
All Indian festivals culminate with a creamy kheer (pudding). Served to the satisfaction of even the gods, this is the one that satisfies all. A small bowl of chilled kheer, served in a clay pot has for centuries never failed to make one feel like a royal. I did love kheer all along my life and was not ready to easily let it go but for the sugar. This time, the addition if stone fruits have elevated the quality if this satisfying festival treat.

The fruits added to this kheer.
This creamy fruit kheer is no added sugar or sweetener (yes, no honey, no stevia) The entire sweetness comes from the milk and the added fruits. I have added cherries, apricots, peaches, bananas and dry dates. You can vary the fruits based on the availability and it will still be gorgeous. However, I will not advocate adding pineapple as it may split the milk.
This recipe is one which I would call as “sinlessly decadent.” Let me know if you would like to try this figure friendly, diabetic adaptable, gluten free, grain eliminated recipe swap for the Diwali season.
Watch out for more exciting recipes from us as we learn and improve. See you next week.
