Sugar Free Mawa Nariyal Peda Or Milk Solid Date And Coconut Peda / Diabetic Friendly Sweet

Sugar free mawa/khoya nariyal khajur peda or milk solid/dried milk date and coconut peda.
No sugar added sweetened with dates and coconut and flavoured with cardamom and rose. Sounds healthy and yummy isn’t it 😊
I have made 13 small sized peda and used 1/2 cup of chopped dates to sweetened it.

Dates are one of the most commonly eaten foods in the Middle East. Their amazing nutritional qualities and health benefits are well known to people across the globe. The date palm is called β€œThe Tree of Life” because of the long shelf life and rich nutritional profile of its fruits.
Apart from containing a high amount of fructose, they also contain an opulence of fiber and nutrients like vitamins A, K, and B-complex, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. The presence of these nutrients in dates helps prevent constipation, heart diseases, intestinal problems, anemia, and diarrhea, among other conditions.
A study done in 2011, published in the Nutrition Journal, was carried out to find the glycemic indices of five varieties of dates. It showed that when diabetics consumed dates, their postprandial glucose levels did not skyrocket. It also showed that dates could offer potential benefits for diabetic patients when consumed in moderation along with a healthy balanced diet.

Chopped or grated coconut – 1 heaped cup

Cardamom powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Make a paste and add coconut in the grinder.

3. Grind again and make a smooth paste.
Add khoya or milk solid in it. Blend to make a smooth mixture.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!

  1. I love your passion towards healthy cooking and especially desserts. Loved the clever use of coconut and dates to sweeten pedas and provide a wonderful taste and aroma with the rosewater and cardamom. Great share and I also agree, there is nothing that diabetics need to avoid. Moderation is the key.
