An Apple Pudding-Style Dessert With Low Sugar For Diabetes

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

You may think that diabetes means you need to get used to boring, bland food. But this exciting dessert is changing the game for diabetics. With a blend of crunchy nuts, soft cooked oats and a balanced flavour, this Apple & Chia pudding style dessert is just what you need. Say goodbye to dull dishes and hello to healthy desserts!

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

● 2 tbsps generous tablespoons whole chia seeds (about 30g)
● 1 medium-sized Apple (100gms) – peeled and diced small\
● 2 tbsp rolled oats
● 2 – 3 tbsp water to cook oats
● 150ml almond or any non-dairy milk
● Mixed nuts – 2 raisins + 2 almonds + 2 walnuts – chopped finely
● 2 dates – deseeded and chopped finely
● Vanilla essence (organic) – 2 drops
● Berries – 2 – 3 for garnishing


● Rinse the chia seeds thoroughly in a sieve. Add to a deep bowl.
● Pour in the almond milk, vanilla essence – 1 drop, and 1 date. Cover the bowl in cling film and put it in the fridge for an hour or so.
● Now prepare oats by cooking them in a small pot with sufficient water to just cook about 2 – 3 tbsp.
● Once cooked, turn off the flame and add chopped nuts, finely chopped apple, 1 date and 1 drop of vanilla essence to cooked oats. Let it sit for 15 – 20 mins in the fridge.
● After an hour, both the chia seeds mix and oats mix will be ready with flavours muddled up.

To assemble –

● Take a short glass or a bowl. Add the soaked chia seeds mixture which must be now swollen after an hour.

● Take about 3 tbsps of the chia mix and place it at the bottom of the glass.

● Then add the oats, nuts and apple mix.

● Garnish with chopped berries to add natural colour.

The addition of oats and apples helps to increase the natural fibre content in this dish. Higher fibre means slower digestion, which in turn protects you from spiking your blood sugar. The added flavours provide that classic dessert impression without the negative health effects.
