Answer: Fortunately individuals with diabetes should be able to adjust their eating habits to accommodate most any dessert. Whether your guests have diabetes or are just trying to reduce their sugar/carbohydrate intake, some simple desserts you could offer are:
• Fresh fruit bowls with whipped cream
• Cheese, nut and fresh fruit platters
Additionally, having desserts where it is possible to take smaller servings makes it easier to enjoy a sweet treat without going overboard. Individual cookies, mini cupcakes, mini muffins or cake balls or small cups of chocolate mousse or puddings topped with fresh berries are some ideas of sweet treats that all of your guests should appreciate.
