15 Sugar-Free Christmas Recipes: The Best Sugar-Free Holiday Treats
Discover a way to still indulge at Christmas with these 15 sugar-free & gluten-free dessert recipes. Your body will love you for it!
Let’s be honest, the thought of living sugar-free during Christmas scares the shizz out you, right? And, I get that because Christmas, for most people, is a free-for-all, no-holds-barred, eating frenzy, filled with cakes, cookies, chocolates, candy, syrupy sweet potatoes, and pies galore.
But what if I told you that you wouldn’t have to suffer or deprive yourself at all by living sugar-free at Christmas? I know what you’re thinking, ‘well…that would be a Christmas miracle!’
The truth is surrounding yourself with soul-satisfying-sweetness, without eating sugar, is totally doable. I’ve been living it for over 3-years now, and I’m here still living to tell the tale, and I’m teaching hundreds of women how to do the same thing through my private coaching program called Sweet Liberation.
I am witnessing women from all over the world melt into pools of joy after experiencing sugar-free peanut butter cups or hemp & goji berries bliss bites. No one has to become a martyr or suffer without sweetness when living sugar-free, period. Instead, you can indulge in sweet treats and lose weight, feel amazing, and reinvent your health all at the same time.
To help you start your season of lights off right, I’ve compiled a Sugar-Free Christmas Recipe Round-Up so that you don’t have to go hunting for sugar-free recipes.
But, how do you define sugar-free, you might be asking. Well…let me tell you.
There are so many people that describe living sugar-free as simply avoiding white processed sugar. That, in my books, is not living sugar-free. Any type of added sugar, may it be from honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, coconut sugar, and so on and so on, are all still sugars. And, the body processes all added sugars in the same way: after all, all added sugars are just a combination of glucose and fructose.
No. When I refer to living sugar-free, I mean completely added sugar-free. It’s the ultimate break for your body, and it is one the major strategies that supported my medical treatment and recovery from a serious chronic illness. Living added sugar-free makes your body feel amazing, and you naturally lose weight without even trying.
So, when I speak about sugar-free Christmas dessert recipes, I’m only going to recommend recipes that are sweetened with fruit or stevia and nothing else. My recipe recommendations will also be gluten-free and artificial sweetener free, too.
Here we go!

When I create any new sugar-free and gluten-free recipe, I have my non-sugar-free and non-gluten-free friends try the recipe out. I only publish recipes that satisfy all customers. I don’t want my food to be labelled as, ‘it’s ok for being healthy’. When I had my neighbour try these bliss bites out, the first thing he said was, ‘you’re bringing these to my Christmas party, right?’ That’s all I needed to hear.
