No-Sugar Fruit Pudding

By Monsinteena

  • 1/2 T unsalted margarine, 8 thin slices firm white bread ( crusts removed), 3 cups fresh raspberries or 1 package (12 oz) frozen dry packed raspberries, 1 can (4 oz) juice packed crushed pineapple, drained, with 1/3 cup of the juice reserved

  1. Grease a 4-cup mold with the margarine and line the bottom and sides with 7 slices of the bread, overlapping them slightly.

  2. In a medium-size heavy saucepan, bring the raspberries, pineapple, and reserved juice to a boil, uncovered, over moderately high heat- about 2 minutes. Lower the heat so that the mixture bubbles gently, and simmer, uncovered, for 4 minutes.

  3. Spoon the fruit mixture into the mold and top with the remaining sloce of bread.Cover with a round of wax paper, then place a weight, such as a plate weighed down with cans of food, on top. Refrigerate overnight.

  4. To serve, loosen with a thin-bladed metal spatula and invert onto a serving plate. Serve plain or with sugar free whipped cream.

I think a nonstick spray would better than margarine. I do not like to criticize until I try, but will be using spray when I try this. And the whole wheat and no sugar added or splenda are also great ideas. I will be trying it that way. Thanks for the Recipe though.

Just use whole wheat bread and no sugar added for canned or frozen fruit use no suar added or use splenda.

Why can't a diabetic have tropical fruit? I have been a type 1 diabetic for over 40 years and eat tropical fruit all the time. The carbs on this dessert is not too bad. A little high, but nothing compared to some regular foods! 2010-06-03 09:34:19 -0500 Report

How can anything that contains bleached enriched flour be considered good for a diabetic, and pineapple, a tropical fruit, is also not highly recommended for a diabetic.

Just because it says no sugar does not mean it is okay for a diabetic…LOOK AT THE CARBS. WOW
