What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla; with an electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add yogurt, eggs, and flour and continue to mix until well-blended. Spoon batter into prepared tin, filling each muffin cup 3/4 full.

Why is it that this site features Diabetic Recipes, yet continuously includes SUGAR in the recipes, instead of a healthy natural sweetener? Carbs would drop. Hoping this approach can be explained to me. Thanks, I have been a Type 1 for 48 years now I use your site for new flavors ideas. Enjoy the newsletter.

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us. We always recommend speaking with a doctor or nutritionist to find out your dietary guidelines. We know that not every recipe works for every person, however the ADA does allow for some sugar use within their acceptable guidelines. Also, sometimes using sugar substitutes can alter a recipes consistency or taste, and it may not work as well. The ADA has great articles on what can happen when using sugar substitutes in the kitchen, which you can find here: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what-can-i-eat/understanding-carbohydrates/artificial-sweeteners/using-sugar-substitutes.html However, that being said, we try to make our recipes versatile enough that you are able to substitute or alter them easily enough to fit into your nutritional guidelines. We hope this answers your question, and if you have any further concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

If you're diabetic, there is rarely a "healthy" natural sweetener that works in diabetic diets - only artificial ones. Instead of complaining, offer up what you think are healthy natural sweeteners. Good luck with that!

How cute! These would be so fun to serve up with tea and pastries when I'm expecting company.
