Everyone loves to eat sweet treats on the day of love. Valentine’s Day is always full of chocolates and candies, so here are some tasty sweet treats that are delicious and safe. Your kidneys will love you for it.
Berries and Cream
Berries are surprisingly very low in sugar. They are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, and they taste amazing! Add a sugar-free whipped topping to finish it off.
Instead of buying cookies, brownies, and other treats, bake your own! All you have to do is substitute sugars and other ingredients that you need to be vigilant about. Splenda and unsweetened applesauce are great substitutes for sweetener.
A simple no-sugar-added cherry cobbler is an awesome treat for February 14th. Pit and split the cherries in half, then place them in a casserole dish. Make a crumble with butter, oats and flour. Sprinkle on top and bake at 350 degrees until it is a golden brown. Serve with a scoop of low sugar vanilla ice cream.
Rice Crispy Treats
Rice Crispy Treats do not have much in them in that could be harmful. It is a great option for people with kidney disease. Just remember to eat them in moderation.
Sugar-free candies are a great option for Valentine’s Day. You can find sugar-free options for most hard candies.
