No Sugar Added Desserts

I see on the menus that some TS places have at least one dessert that falls into the no sugar added/sugar free category but there are a few where I don't see that option.
Does anyone know whether or not they will come up with a no sugar added option for someone in your party that is a diabetic, or is that person just out of luck??
In particular, I am wondering about 'Ohana and Chefs de France as well as some of the buffet meals like Cape May and Boma.
Also, if anyone knows what the "usual" no sugar added option might be (if there is one) I'd love to know. Thanks in advance!!

No sugar added or sugar free does not mean carbohydrate free, and some of the sugar may have been replaced with sugar alcohol, which is a laxative. In addition, more fat may have been added to make up for the lower sugar. So the sugar free option may be nutritionally worse than another choice. Since Disney does not provide exact nutritional information on its menu items, diabetics are left to make best guesses as to appropriate food choices.

As a Type 2 diabetic, I consume some sugarfree root beer, but otherwise I tend to avoid the sugarfree options offered in any restaurants. I prefer to share a normal dessert with my husband, if I can work that into my meal plan. With the large portions, we split meals on our last trip to WDW, our first since my diagnosis, and we will be doing so when we return this year. Whole portions are almost always too much for me.
