Until John gets dentures, he's stuck with not being able to chew easily. I've been making him desserts by making fruit sauces, (put berries in pot, add Splenda, turn on heat and mash until it looks good enough to pour over pancakes.) Sometimes I smash a banana in with it too for variety.

But, I'd like to make something different for him for Thursday night to celebrate his first home meal. Does anyone know a melt-in-your-mouth dessert without adding ice cream to it? (Lactose intolerant, so all dairy products are out.)

I bought a couple of pints of blueberry, if name-the-fruit conjures ideas.

Blended mango with banana or straw berry's makes a great drink/shake by itself with no ice cream.

well Lynn,

there is a product called 'Kefir', and it's like a non-dairy yogurt, so you can add
all kinds of natural, sweet fruits or berries and get a nice creamy effect for a delicious dessert -
also, 'raw-organic-sugar' is your best bet for a very healthy sweet additive if you need one.
it also contains lots and lots of the enzymes that John needs in his digestive tract after
all of the drugs...
:):)

Sugar-free because we're diabetics, so it doesn't matter if it's raw or processed. But probiotics has hit the medical field. John's been taking them for a decade, and even the hospital put him on them when he got C-diff.

But I'll check with him if he'll use Kefir. Since we're both lactose intolerant just looking at something that kind of looks like milk makes me a little queasy. I don't know if he's the same way, but he's been having them take away the milk at every meal. (You'd think they'd catch on he doesn't like milk after six weeks, wouldn't you? lol)

No sugar salt or dairy?
(Besides ewwww, doesn't almost everything have those in it?)

- Dark chocolate (60-80 % cocoa) has very little sugar.

Dairy free:
- I think there are some ice cream brands that make lactose free ice cream?
(or you could make some yourself: Dairy Free Ice Cream Recipes - Non-dairy Ice Cream )
... obviously, this would include sugar though....

I've got the mango now. (And cherries, blueberries and bananas, because there is no such thing as "too much fruit." lol) But I haven't used one for so long, I'm kind of scared to open it up. I realized as I was looking at them, I also have no idea what a ripe mango looks like.

I'll get over this, since I have to make this dessert soon, but I thought you'd get a kick on how unusual the mango is to some of us Americans. (Almost bought a papaya instead, simply because I forgot what they look like too.)

Pssst, you do know fruit has very much sugar? (you did say sugar free :p )

Simply sliced orange with cinnamon is YUM ... but I don't know how easy / difficult it is to eat without teeth

Lynn,

mangos are the bomb,,,we are so blessed, a new store called Aldi has come into our neighborhood,
I think they are a German store, anyway, their prices are hard to be beat around here, and I mean
all of the normal stores are suffering because of their prices,,,their mangos usually go (3-4) for a dollar- -
anyway, we try to buy them when they feel kind of soft and then put them in the window with the
sunshine coming in on them so that they will absorb the sunshine's healing properties...
there's really not a lot of meat on them, but when you peel them, suck what's left on the seed,
there's lots of goodies left on it...if you have teeth left, you'll have to floss afterwards, but it is so worth it...:rolleyes:

tell John that we are thrilled about him coming home, and are praying that God's will be done in
every way that unfolds for you both...

much love,
otn

=). I sure know how a ripe mango looks like, bec. most mangoes here are yellow and green, although there are also apple mangoes. The larger yellow mangoes are actually green when unripe, but always turn yellow and softer/less firm when you touch them. The small Indian mangoes are still green outside even when ripe, and may even be overripe but still green!

Although we ate unripe mangoes w/ salt when we were young (now i am less good at eating sour fruits), i never knew to eat them w/ lime or chili powder however. And since we often ate them fresh and sometimes taken as juice or made into ice cream, we're not used to the other forms it is used or made by others: salsas, chutneys, on fish, chicken or pork... and it's our national fruit!
Oops, and there is the mango gelatin sold in cups.

That's ok.. it's just one serving as a welcome treat-). Speaking of sugar, i had to check out some foods for a relative who had to watch sugar intake too, and table shows a fresh serving has 24 mg sugar, wc is high indeed, but we hope the 76% Dv vit C, 25% vit A and 11% B6 should outweigh the sugar-).
Do you know, it is only recently i have been trying to sort and 'extract' or to say in the local language, himayin (as in debone a fish, or separate moringa leaves from the small stems) the sugar, vit. and mineral content of some foods (and forget them again too)...like a student does.

We must have a different type of mango, because ours has some green and some red on it. Ends up the mango wasn't even close to ripe, and since I had already started peeling it and I needed it that day, it's decomposing in the composter. It really has to be bad if a squirrel won't even eat it. I've thrown out old bananas and the next day the peel is on my step. They've taken dead English lambs' ear and tried eating that. Almost everything I throw in there, a squirrel tries out, but the mango is in the same spot it was when I threw it out there on Wednesday.

Break up
A banana or 2 and freeze them. Take them out 5 To 10 mins Before you want them. Blend just before you eat. The longer you leave it the more sloppy it goes so it can be disappointing if you do it too soon before you want it. The texture of the banana turns to A Creamy icecream texture and Is delicious. You can add Some unsweetened cocoa powder For a chocolate taste. The banana sweetens it plenty but you could add a sweetner of your choice. If I used the cocoa I used to also add a good tablespoon of Solid coconut oil Whilst blending. It went into tiny hard chunks and the cocoa coated those in the mixing making them Like tiny melt
In the mouth choc chips.
You can even do plain banana And take Half out and then add the cocoa and blend for another few seconds so you have both flavours :)

There's a lot of Substitute for milk like soy and almond milk, vegan uses nuts like cashews and others, you can search for it if you're interested, for sweeteners some uses dates, natural honey, and other stuff and fruits as mentioned above. I think you can benefit from vegan recipes they have a lot of alternatives and substitution maybe you'll find a sub you can use it for creams in your desserts, such as coconut cream or coconut milk perhaps? Have to check labels of the pack for milk though. I think there's a diff between the 2. Hope this helps in a way. 😊

Basically all deserts have sugar so the choices are limited. You can use coconut butter as a substitute for sugar. Sweet vegetables, such as sweet potatoes and corn (maybe mashed) may work.

Sugar-free jello I believe meets all your criteria. Sugar-free jello taste the same as regular jello.
