Easy Flavoured Sugar Free Glaze Recipe

As a recipe creator and diabetic, I am always looking for new diabetic-friendly products to incorporate in my recipes. In this flavoured Sugar Free Glaze recipe, I am using Stur, a flavour enhancer that is used in water and to make drinks.

Stur has no sugar added, no artificial sweeteners and no artificial colours, which makes it a great diabetic-friendly product to add to your diabetic-friendly kitchen.

Helpful Tips and FAQs

Temperature of Baked Goods

Let your baked goods cool for at least one to two hours before drizzling or adding the glaze. If the baked goods are hot the glaze will run off. If you are in a rush, cool your baked goods in the fridge or freezer and then add the glaze.

Adding colour to the glaze

To make your glaze a rich colour, i recommend using gel or paste food colouring. Liquid food colouring can make your glaze runny. If the liquid food colouring is all you have, add it to your liquid Stur before adding it to the sweetener. You may need to add extra sweetener to get the desired sweetness.

Flavours available from Stur

Stur comes in a variety of flavours that work well with our flavoured sugar free glaze recipe. Current flavours are :

  • Peach
  • Strawberry Watermelon
  • Black Raspberry
  • Coconut Pineapple
  • Fruit Punch
  • Strawberry lemon
  • Blue & Blackberry
  • Concord Grape
  • Pomegranate Cranberry
  • Lemonade

Substitutions for the Stur

Another brand of water flavour enhancers can be used in place of the Stur. You can also use Sugar Free Walden Farms flavoured syrups, or Jordan’s Skinny Flavour4ed Syrups.

When using other water enhancers, the amounts in the recipe remain the same. For Jordan’s Skinny Syrups or Walden Farms Flavoured Syrups, you may need to adjust the liquid in the recipe.

Fresh fruit juices can also be used. Lemon and lime work well, but keep in mind using fruit juice can change the overall nutritional information.

Using alternative Sweetener

I use Splenda granulated whenever possible as it does not negatively impact my blood sugar. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols cause my blood sugar to rise. If this is not a concern for you or you have a preferred sweetener, by all means, make substitutions that suit your preferences and dietary needs. Keep in mind that substituting the sweetener may change the overall nutritional information.
