    Help Sugarless Thanksgiving Recipes?

    Advertisements
    DB just told me last night that his cousin, who will be spending Thanksgiving with us, is allergic to sugar. I was going to make sweet potatoes with marshmallows, but that's obviously out of the question now.

    Anyone know any good sugar-free Thanksgiving-y dishes?

    How does he LIVE?! Isn't there like, sugar in everything these days!!?

    Is he allergic to every type of sugar like brown, fruit, muscovado etc or just cane & beet?

    Also, you could try using sugar replacement maybe?

    Thats a tough one, you could do some sort of vegetable dish. Or just make sweet potatoes without the marshmallows.

    We always eat sweet potatoes with crushed pineapple (if he can eat fruit). And you'd have to use fresh sweet potatoes because I think the canned ones have added sugar.

    We eat low sugar, and I made a cranberry jello mold with sugar free gelatin filled with cranberry and apples. That was good. Again, you wouldn't be able to use the canned cranberry sauce. This year I made my cranberry sauce without sugar, I used a little Splenda and natural fruit sweetener.

    Other than that, we make everything from scratch, like roasted garlic cauliflower soup or a butternut squash soup, creamed spinach, brussels sprouts with browned butter, etc.

    I would be sure to double check if it is all types of sugar or certain types like PP said. sugar allergies just like all others can be specific or broad.
