Top Most Sugar-Free Sweets For Diwali
The houses around you are brightened up with pretty little lights, huge sales are going on all around and the markets are filled with all kinds of sweets and desserts, it all denotes to one thing, Diwali is here. The festival of light, sweets, and lots of fun, is the most awaited one and for all the right reasons, the heavenly glow of Diyas’ light that changes the entire environment around us, homes decorated with beautiful colours, and kitchens & refrigerators loaded with oh-so-delicious sweets, received as Diwali gifts from friends and family, that we can never get enough of.

Do not let this spoil your Diwali vibes as we are here to give you an alternative. Enjoy all the dainty treats of Diwali but in the Sugar-free variant. That’s right, for your convenience, here is a list of all the sweets that you can devour without feeling guilty or worrying about your health, read on.
A perfect combination of tropical fruit and dry fruits, coconut barfi is loved everywhere in India. As the sweet is already made of fruit, making it sugar-free makes it a healthier alternative compared to another fruitless, sweetened one. The best part is you can easily make this sweet at home with milk, grated coconuts, and natural sweet replacements.
Known for its crunchy yet juicy texture, Petha is an amazing choice as it is naturally made with a vegetable. Just replace the glaringly high sugar with a harmless natural sugar supplement and you will get the best sweet munching.
Who doesn’t love the sweet aroma of roses? Well, how about tasting it? Rose coconut kalakand is a very lesser known sweet but trust us when we say that it is one of the best sweets ever. Made with natural sugar-free replacements and unsweetened rose syrup, the sweet tastes like a piece from paradise and it will be an amazing addition to your Diwali gift hampers.
It is impossible to talk about Indian sweets and leave West Bengal out of the discussion. The tempting dessert’s original version is Sandesh that’s available in the sugar-free variant as well but the version that includes apple is a bit more healthy, though the sweet includes lots of milk and cottage cheese, so don’t have too much of it, no matter how much you want to.
We are sure this sweet is on everyone’s all-time favorite list. Kaju Barfi is one of the most popular Indian sweets and ironically it’s not that sweet or difficult to make. All you need is Kaju (Cashews), milk, natural sugar supplement, and Coconut oil. This is one of the healthiest sweets as well, as it is made of Kajus only and after replacing Butter or Ghee with coconut oil and sugar with sugar-free supplements, nothing unhealthy remains in the recipe.
Diwali is a time to enjoy, don’t let the stress of eating unhealthy get in the way of your celebration, and switch to healthier sugar-free sweets, these delicious delicacies are available as Diwali sweets online and offline, take your pick and enjoy, Happy Diwali!
