The holiday season can be a difficult time of year for anyone who cannot eat sugar. There are so many meaningful and fun activities to do, but the truth is, many favorite traditions involve preparing and/or eating special foods that are only eaten around the months of November and December. Fortunately, today, there are a lot of better options, in terms of both quantity and quality, for people who either cannot consume sugar or choose not to for health reasons. One of the most satisfying and delicious things you can get, either for yourself or a loved one, this holiday season is a fruitcake with no sugar.
Why Get a No Sugar Added Fruit Cake?
The fruitcake is one of the most famous holiday desserts, and it is also one of the oldest. It is a dense, rich cake studded with fruit and nuts. Over time, though, (not to mention with the invention of candied fruit-making) it has evolved to become one of the notoriously sugary and dense desserts on the planet. This does not mean that you have to give up fruitcake altogether, though. If you are fond of this dessert and will miss it this holiday season, or are in the mood for it right now, then you can order a fruitcake that has no sugar added.
What to Expect from a Fruit Cake
A fruitcake has all the texture and appeal of a regular fruitcake, but with no sugar added. It contains dried fruits and nuts in a buttery, moist cake. Glace cherries and pineapples are baked in, as well, but they have been prepared without any added sugar. Altogether, this fruitcake only contains 1 gram of sugar per serving, and this is just natural sugar.
