Low-calorie strawberry ice-cream recipe with a surprise ingredient!

Now we have finally moved into summer, it's such a treat to have ice-cream in the freezer, but as much as I love ice-cream, it's something that I rarely indulge in while I am trying to be mindful of what I eat, as it's full of sugar and fat. I haven't ever had a go at making a healthy alternative, and I love the idea of having a guilt-free ice-cream sitting in my freezer this summer!   I was really curious when ao.com asked me if I'd like to try out their low-calorie strawberry ...

Caramelised onion hummus

I'm making up for lost time with hummus, I had never even tried it until about 4 years ago- it just looked like something I wouldn't like! I sampled some out of politeness at a friend's house a few years ago, and realised what I had been missing! I have since discovered how easy it is to make, and not only that, but how easy it is to make a healthy version that still tastes amazing! I've never been a fan of carrot sticks, but add hummus, and they are a treat! Some of my favourites so far ...

Vegan sweet potato hummus

A couple of months ago I had an amazing weekend away in the Cotswolds with a big group of girls (and inspirational slimmers) that I met through Slimming World- we all met for the first time in 2016 at a bloggers' lunch organised by Slimming World head office, and since become fast friends. I wasn't able to make it to the last meet up, but this time we stayed in an absolutely gorgeous house (Alcester Farmhouse) booked through Kate & Toms, an absolutely brilliant company who have the ...

Pink’n’Whites

 I was first introduced to Pink'n'Whites when I joined Slimming World. My friend Emma said I must buy some, as they make a brilliant low-syn snack, and are great to beat a sweet craving. I bought my first packet in the pound shop, and they were such a saviour to me and my sweet tooth! What are Pink'n'Whites? Pink'n' Whites are made of 2 crunchy wafers, filled with pink & white mallow. They are very low in fat (98% fat free) and are only 50 calories each, or 2.5 syns on Slimming ...

Butterbean and za’atar dip

One of my favourite cookbooks of 2016/17 has been Sabrina Ghaynour's Sirocco, I've loved every recipe that I've tried, and this one I have made over and over again- pretty much any time we have had anyone over for dinner/snacks and often as a Saturday night nibble! I made the recipe by the book for my Christmas Persian feast, it uses lots of garlic oil, and is super-tasty. However I wanted to make a healthier version so that I could enjoy it guilt-free, so I've made a few little changes ...

Hummus

  The UK hummus shortage prompted me to get this recipe up on the website! It's one of those things that is so super-easy to make, and tastes so good freshly made that I think it's such a shame to buy the plastic pots of it in the supermarket! Most hummus recipes use a fair old bit of olive oil, which is delicious, but not great if you are trying to slim down. I use fat-free yoghurt instead of oil to give it a smooth and 'dippy' consistency, and personally I think it's just as ...

Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks review and COMPETITION

After trying the sweet chilli and lemon flavour of the Yushoi Snapea (link) range a few weeks ago, I was very happy when Calbee asked if I would like to try the rest of the range too! These are a completely novel product on the market, as they are made mainly of green peas! They are also baked so I guessed they'd probably be a good Slimming World snack. They work out as 5 syns per serving (21g) and are the perfect treat alongside that weekend glass of wine, or as a nibble when you have ...

Yoghurt coated blueberries

This isn't really a recipe, but an idea for a snack that is so simple it's genius! Dip any fresh fruit into fat free yoghurt and freeze it- voila! A tasty snack to stop you reaching for anything more syn-ful!
