Submitted by MARK M. from Tennessee

A dessert to satisfy the strongest of chocolate cravings without any of the guilt. Great for the whole family--and they won't even realize it is low-carb. Besides being extremely low-carb it is also full of fiber, very rich, great-tasting and above all very chocolaty.

GOOD LUCK in the contest, Mark! He was kind enough to share his special recipe with us for this amazing dessert he has created. It's made with powdered shirataki noodles, aka glucomannan. ENJOY!


2-1/2 Tsp Glucomannan Powder (available in health food stores)
1 Tbs Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Powder
2 Cups Water
2 Tbs DaVinci Vanilla Syrup
3 Tbs DaVinci Caramel Syrup
3 Tbs Sierra Mist Free Soda
1/4 Tsp Stevia Extract Powder
10 Splenda Mini Tablets

In a blender add all liquid ingredients and sweeteners. Start blender on lowest
setting. Pull center out of blender lid and first add the Glucomannan Powder and
then add the Chocolate Powder. Put the center back in the lid and let blend on
medium for about 30 seconds. Pour into covered bowl and put in the refrigerator.
Best if sits in fridge for at least 5-6 hours.

Serve with a little cream and DaVinci Syrup of your choice on top (Caramel is my
favorite, but Raspberry is good too), or serve with homemade sugar-free whipped
cream as pictured.

Wow Jimmy, thanks for posting my recipe. Hope everyone enjoys. I buy my glucomannan from: or you may also find it at a local Asian Market.
