By the way, it wasn't just my opinion about the apples. They were on the "approved" fruit list given to me by the doctor. Apples, pears, plums & berries were all ok. Some may not be able to eat them alone, but for those who love fuit and want to include it in their diet these are the ones to try to include with a meal.

Joanne, I don't know where or when you got your info, but apples are fine for most diabetics!! I say most because I wouldn't make the blanket statement they are or are not good for everybody. However, I know several diabetics, including myself who eat apples all the time without sugar spikes or any other complication.

Who says apples are forbidden? They are high in fiber and it is ok to eat as a snack. I have one almost everyday. Will love trying the dip with it.

I have been an insulin dependent diabetic going on 39 years and I de-skin granny smith apples, cut up and slice; then put 2 tbsp of peanut butter in a dish and dab each piece into PB. It tastes awesome and keeps my blood sugars closer to normal! thanks~

fruit is not forbidden for a diabetic..and some of us have a bad reaction to Stevia. We can't live our lives with only things that are "0" on the glycemic index. Moderation in everything…and using common sense. I use Splenda occasionally…and occasionally I have sugar, too. Stevia is bitter in my mouth, Xylitol acts as a laxative. Sweet is not anathema if used sparingly. We just use common sense. This recipe sounds great!

brilliant! just brilliant! they tell you about cream cheese and the splenda and say go for it, but what they neglect to tell you is that splenda is NOT zero on the glycemic index. your body reacts the same to splenda as it does to sugar and starts producing lepitin and insulin (for you type 2 diabetics out there) and this plays havoc on your diabetes!

note the diabetic drug/device ads. a definite conflict of interest.

apples are NOT appropriate for a diabetic.

use the same recipe, use only 1/4 cu or as little as possible of splenda and then use stevia to sweeten. stevia is 0 on the glycemic index.

substitute the following for the apple: green beans, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, celery—any low carb fresh veggie will do.

if it tastes sweet, it is. skip it. sweet may be america's favorite flavor (besides salt, but let's not go there), but it's still a known toxin and the chief culprit of diabetes and obesity.

I'd add cinnamon and low fat sour cream to the recipe. Voila! Low-fat, low cal, yet decadent cheesecake fondue! Goes good w/ apples, grapes, pick your fruit! I prefer berries. :)
