Serve cold with a scoop of fat free fromage frais or some reduced fat/light aerosol cream (0.5 syns for 3 tbsp)
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this [xxx].
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for this Low Syn Cherry & Almond Clafoutis uses 5 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 8 portions. That’s less than 1 tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
