Low Sugar Dessert

low sugar personal stone fruit pie

Do you like dessert, but want to cut down on your sugar intake? Today’s recipe is low in sugar and still tastes perfectly sweet! Summer and early fall are both great times of year to find stone fruits in season. Stone fruits are also called drupes. Stone fruits are categorized by having a pit or a stone in the center. The pit is always surrounded by the fleshy, edible part of the fruit. Stone fruits are typically low in calories and fat and high in vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, A, potassium, and calcium. For today’s personal stone fruit pie, I used plums and peaches. You could easily substitute any stone fruit on this list and it would be delicious. The stone fruits include:

  • peaches
  • plums
  • nectarines
  • pluots
  • apricots
  • cherries
  • mangos
  • lychees

This pie is low in sugar because it was made with allulose. Allulose is a rare natural sugar that is very low in calories. When you compare allulose to sugar it has only 5% of the calories and is about 70% as sweet as sugar. We experimented with many recipes and we found the allulose to be perfectly sweet. It works in a cup of coffee or tea and it also is a great substitute in baked goods.

You can find this kosher, gluten-free sweetener here.  Today’s recipe is really fun for the kids to help you make. My daughter enjoyed mixing up the crust, cutting the fruits and then making the mini pies. Invite your kids into the kitchen to help you, even though they might make a bit of a mess. Learning how to cook is a lifelong skill that they will thank you for teaching them when they are older.

The streusel we made with some brown sugar. You could also use the allulose in the streusel topping and leave out the brown sugar. This will make your pie almost sugar free.

The stone fruits and all cut up and we added a little bit of allulose and cinnamon and flour to the bowl. The peaches were super sweet but the plums were very tart. Taste your fruit and see if they need more sweetness added.
