how can a sweet be made without sugar or honey (which are high calorie ?)
using artificial sweeteners like (zero sugar) will make sweets taste not good

best way is eat all sweets and workout well

Starwberry milk - low calorie

Ingredients
Low fat paneer - 1 cup
Low fat khoya - 1/2 cup
Assorted nuts (finely chopped) - 1
tablespoon
Sugar free tablet - 1
Strawberries - 10 pieces
 
Method
1) Grate paneer and sugar free tablet. Stir in a dry pan for one minute.
2) Grind 5 strawberries to get a mushy liquid. Add khoya and sugar free tablet and strawberry mixture in a dry pan and stir and blend together for 1 minute or till it thickens enough to make a mould
3) Halve the remaining strawberries and keep them aside
4)Shape the khoya mixture into small balls and then cave in the sides to open up like a motak.
5) Now stuff paneer mixture into it and garnish with halved strawberries and nuts.
