Sweet Shirataki Noodle Pudding with Apples and Almonds

Because Shirataki noodles are not made with flour they make the perfect ingredient for a Passover noodle pudding. Because Shirataki noodles have almost zero carbohydrates they make the perfect ingredient for diabetics. What a great product they are and I love finding new ways to use them. For those of you that are not familiar with Shirataki Tofu Noodles please read my article about them. This can be found by searching the archives at the bottom of the page. I have taken another old, family favorite recipe and converted it so that the carbs are at a minimum but the flavor is still at its maximum. And this noodle pudding is absolutely delicious. I've also updated it with the addition of almonds and a touch of Amaretto in the mix. A wonderful sweet dessert or a delicious snack, this dish will be loved by your family and friends and soon become a permanent recipe in your collection. I hope you enjoy.

Sweet Shirataki Noodle Pudding with Apples and Almonds


1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 cups apple, diced
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon (more for garnish if desired)
1 cup Splenda
8 ounce container whipped cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. Amaretto (optional)
2 - 8 ounce packages Shirataki Tofu Noodles, Fettuccine style, rinsed under cool water, drained and chopped into bite size pieces
1/4 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
vegetable spray

Saute the apples in the butter with the nutmeg and cinnamon and about 1/3 of the Splenda over low heat until tender, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 350'

Whisk together the cream cheese, vanilla, heavy cream, eggs and Amaretto in a large bowl. Add the cooked apples and shirataki noodles. Stir well to blend all ingredients well.

Coat a large casserole dish with vegetable spray and pour in the noodle mixture. Sprinkle the top with the slivered almonds and additional cinnamon if desired. Bake for about 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until set and lightly browned on top. Allow to rest 10 minutes before serving. This dish can be served either warm or cold.

  1. If you don't like tofu or are allergic to soy, Miracle Noodles are a great alternative to tofu noodles. They are the original shirataki noodle company in the U.S. and all their products are tofu-free. Shirataki is made in an alkali-environment and as such, it shouldn't have any protein (even tofu has protein) because it gets denatured. Check out
