This particular recipe I made it less calorie by simply replacing the sugar for the natural sweetener Lite and Sweet. Lite and Sweet is an easy to use sweetener that comes from corn cobs. It tastes like sugar with only 3 calories per serving and a very low calorie, low glycemic sweetener that can be used in place for sugar.
It’s easy to convert many recipes making them healthy ad low calorie when you use Lite and Sweet. Its a blend of Xylitol and Erythritol both very good sweeteners that been available in the markets for 100’s of years. You can find the sweetener at health food stores all over the country, as well in the website, or amazon. Don’t miss out the opportunity in cooking with a healthy alternative sugar, this sweetener is truly great. Cooks and bakes well, it’s natural, safe for diabetics with a low glycemic index of 3 and excellent for anyone trying to avoid the overuse of sugar.

No Sugar Added Fresh Peach Tart
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered Lite and Sweet
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 (14 ounces) can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated for 24 hours or more
2 Tbsp powdered Lite and Sweet
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup Lite and Sweet
1 tsp lemon juice
3 large Peaches washed and sliced (3 cups)
1/4 fresh cup raspberries
Place a 1 (14 ounces) can full-fat coconut milk in refrigerated for 24 hours or more before you start making the recipe. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream butter and powder lite and sweet until light and fluffy. Beat in flour (mixture will be crumbly). Pat onto a greased 12-in. tart or pizza pan. Bake until lightly browned, 25-28 minutes. Set the crust aside and cool the crust. Chill your mixing bowl and beaters for 10 minutes before whipping the cream. After the coconut milk is chilled the next day remove from the refrigerator, make sure to not shake or tip the can so that you can extract the cream from the chilled coconut milk can and you can dispose the liquid part or save it for smoothies. Using a spoon remove the coconut cream from the can and place it in the chilled bowl. Using only the thickened cream beat for 30 seconds with a mixer until creamy. Next add the powdered Lite and Sweet, and vanilla mixing until creamy and smooth – about 1 minute. Taste and adjust the sweetness as needed. Immediately place it over the crust. Refrigerate the crust with the cream. Meanwhile in a small sauce pan combine the Lite and Sweet and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat until the Lite and Sweet is dissolved for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice stir with a whisk and set it aside letting it cool. Next arrange the sliced peaches on top of the crust. Starting in the center of the crust and moving out and around. Brush the peaches with the sweetener mixture. Place the raspberries on top of the peaches and add the rest of the sweetener liquid over the peaches and raspberries. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
P.S. In case you don’t want to use coconut cream and you are in a hurry to make this recipe. You can substitute for it for plain greek yogurt or heavy cream following the same steps to mix it and add the sweetener and vanilla.
