    Sweetener-free primal desserts

    I thought it might be nice to have a thread to try and consolidate some dessert recipes that contain no sweeteners, artificial or natural. I would love to add some new recipes to my arsenal. My current favorite is this Strawberry pie from thisprimallife.com.

    And oldie but goodie and SO simple.

    Take heavy whipping cream and put it in a mixer bowl.
    Consider adding a dash of vanilla extract.
    Mix until fluffy.

    Place in a bowl with berries, coconut, nuts, or nothing else at all.
    Eat and enjoy!

    You can make a cheescake with very little sweetener which I find very satisfying. Since I've been going without sugar for a while now, I could probably eat with no honey at all and it would be quite good. I use Batty's recipe here: http://www.livestrong.com/recipes/cheesecake-34/

    do you count using fruit as "sweetener"...technically, you are using the sweetness/sugar of the fruit to sweeten the dish. I can't think of any truly sweetener-free desserts except for whipped cream.

    This is one of my faves: http://www.sonofgrok.com/2009/02/time-for-cheesecake/

    I personally do not consider fruit a sweetener, although I probably would if we are talking a reduced juice or something where the sugars are condensed.

    I have taken to the fake banana ice cream thing.

    http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/s...redient-093414

    But I don't have a food processor, so I put the banana in the freezer for a few hours then took it out, let it partially defrost and then mushed it up with a fork/spoon/various things. Pretty good, basically just partially frozen mashed banana though.
