recipes will liven up your dining. The sugar free diet can be delicious; even
desserts. Today, more than ever it is easy to prepare great recipes without

Statistics show that we consume huge quantities of refined sugar annually causing a problem with tooth decay and adding empty calories with no nutritional value. No one is more of a lover of sweets than me; I simply love sweets and that is a big problem for me. I have to carefully restrict my desserts. However big the problem is for any of us, we do not have to completely give up dessert like luscious cheesecake recipes.
A sugar free cheesecake recipe might be the perfect dessert to give the diet a boost. Many cooks, especially young parents are limiting the consumption of extra sugar in their diets. This automatically eliminates the sugar sweetened desserts, but it does not have to eliminate desserts altogether.
The taste of this delicious sugar free cheesecake recipe brings back many memories. Many of you might remember having those orange cream sickles or “dream sickles” when you were young. That taste was just so indescribable!
Then Hostess came out with those delicious orange cupcakes. I even got all my kids hooked on those. When we moved to Florida, they would not allow those to be sold in Florida. (Something to do with the Florida oranges.) Anyway that was such a disappointment for many of us so every trip back to Ohio was to load up on those orange cupcakes.
