    I generally use fruit as a condiment and sweetener.

    For example, I put berries in a small saucepan with a bit of lemon juice and heat just enough until berry syrup forms, which is sweet-tasting from the sugar in the berries. I might mix the juice into whipped cream to sweeten the whipped cream and serve the whipped cream with the cooked berries. The kids love this as a treat and it has no more sugar than just eating berries. I use a nitrous oxide siphon to make the whipped cream, which needs very little sugar for the whipped cream to taste sweet because the aeration seems to increase the surface area exposed to the sweet sensors on the tongue, so a little goes a long way.

    Another technique is to cut the fruit very fine. I cut strawberries into 1/16th inch cubes (I use a very sharp knife and math skills to minimize the number of knife slices--it is kind of a game for me) then add a little vanilla extract and let sit for up to an hour. These brings out the sweetness without adding sugar (other than the very small amount used in vanilla extract).

    excluding the Xylitol, which isn't 0 GI and which the cook doesn't care for.

    Tagatose, recommended by Dr. Bernstein for T1D, is another possibility.
