Low-Sugar Holiday Dessert Recipes to Help Your Teeth
December 18, 2017
With the Holidays right around the corner, many of us go home and indulge ourselves on all the yummy foods that come with the season. Even though these foods are delicious, they are usually high in sugar. Certain harmful bacteria in your mouth love to feed on the sugar that you eat which causes them to release acids that destroy tooth enamel. This can lead to cavities and more aches and pains that you really don’t want as a present this year. This Holiday Season try some of these low-sugar dessert recipes that not only let you have that extra piece that you’ve been wanting to grab, but also keep your teeth healthy.
Instead of eating the classic pumpkin pie that’s filled with high amounts of sugar, try cranberry cream cheese pumpkin cookies and still get the pumpkin flavor you want that’s made with dried cranberries, spices and a very low amount of sugar. Another great low-sugar treat is a black forest tartlet. This recipe is great for all chocolate lovers and those wanting to keep their teeth happy this holiday season. Lastly, you can try these walnut-raspberry thumbprints that have only seven grams of carbs per cookie, and require only ½ cup of sugar.
