Raspberry Chocolate Sundae : Low Carb Heaven !

Raspberry Chocolate Low Carb Sundae

"Layered raspberries, blackberries, chocolate cream and coconut low carb sundae. With only 8.3g carbs and fresh berries, it is a much better option than say a McDonalds strawberry (?) sundae which has 46.7g carbs and a whopping 43.5g sugar! Imagine eating almost 11 sachets of sugar! When you can really visualise how much sugar fast food contains, it is staggering and puts you off them for life.

McDonalds sundaes also contain Glucose Syrup (derived from maize, contains sulphites) Vegetable Gums (412, 407, 407a, 466), Emulsifiers (471, 433), Flavour, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Acidity Regulator (330), Thickeners (440, 410), Flavour, Preservative (202), Colour (124), Firming Agent (509). Hmm, no thanks." (But I guess it is your choice!)

"Yummy combination of chocolate, cream, raspberries and coconut make this a winning dessert and low carb too.

Serves: 4-5
500ml double cream
3 tbs cocoa powder
2 tbs stevia or sweetener of choice
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
shredded coconut flakes

Whip the cream, cocoa powder and stevia together until quite firm, but do not over whip the cream or it make split.
Choose wine glasses or tumblers and start to layer the chocolate cream alternately with the raspberries, blackberries and shredded coconut.
Continue until you have at least 4 layers.
Top the sundae off with more raspberries, blackberries and coconut flakes.

'Yummy combination' as it says, but would be more yummy with a shaving of +85% chocolate over the top to set it off.

YUM! What a great idea for a dessert. I don't usually eat dessert, but it's good to have low-carb options like this on file for when getting together with friends. Pinning now.

Looks delicious! The chocolate in the whipped cream sounds like a heavenly touch for all those yummy berries.

Can't wait to try it out!

Another way to make chocolate cream is to gently melt a few rows of 85% chocolate then mix in the double cream after it has cooled slightly.

Sounds mega yummy.
Don't like the artificial sweetener, so the chocolate shavings and the melted chocolate sound even yummier then the cocoa powder.
