Here is a recipe that I found on the Diabetes Self Management Website. One of my major weaknesses is sweets, so I try to discover new ways to make healthy (reduced harm) desserts. I love this recipe!!! Every time I make the Dessert Pizza, people rave about it! Try it out and tell me what you think ūüôā

Dessert fruit pizzas (Diabetes Friendly Recipe)

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Cooking time: approximately 30 minutes

Baking time: 10‚Äď14 minutes per pan

 

***I altered this recipe, instead of using banana and kiwi, I used    blackberries and raspberries.

  • 1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 8-inch banana, peeled and cut into 20 slices
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened orange juice
  • 1 cup honey-nut flavored cream cheese spread
  • 2 kiwi fruit, peeled, cut into 10 slices, and halved
  • 20 mandarin orange segments (about 1/2 cup) canned in juice, drained well
  • 3/4 cup whole strawberries, cut into 20 slices
  • 1/4 cup apricot 100% fruit spread

Portion dough into 20 cookies. Bake according to package directions. Remove to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Place banana slices in a small bowl and toss gently with orange juice until well coated (to prevent browning). Drain and discard juice and set bananas aside. Carefully spread each cooled cookie lightly with cream cheese. On the top of each cookie arrange 1 half-slice of kiwi, 1 banana slice, 1 mandarin orange segment, and 1 strawberry slice; set aside. Place fruit spread in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Drizzle melted fruit spread lightly over each pizza. Refrigerate until serving time; serve within 2 hours for best appearance and taste.

Serving size: 1 dessert pizza
