How many Syns are in these Mini Christmas Cheesecakes?
These Mini Christmas Cheesecakes are just 1 Syn each! That is a hefty Syn saving when compared to a standard cheesecake, and they certainly don’t compromise on flavour or richness!
It is important in this recipe, to use a sweetener which weighs the same as sugar. If you are using a powdered sweetener then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less because powdered sweetener weighs less.
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new 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 we 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 these Mini Christmas Cheesecakes uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 24 portions.
That’s way less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any Syns for the sweetener itself.
You could even serve them with some fresh fruit to make a proper dessert! Why not choose something different from our Slimming World Speed Food List?

How do I make this Mini Christmas Cheesecakes recipe?
Spray the silicone mini muffin tin with Low Calorie Cooking Spray. In a small bowl, soak the raisins in the rum.
Crush the digestives into crumbs and place into the base of each muffin mould – this is around a teaspoon in each. Spray again with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and pat into an even layer.
In a mixing bowl, combine the Lightest Philadelphia, eggs, vanilla extract, mixed spice, sweetener and yoghurt until smooth. Tip in the soaked raisins and remaining rum from the small bowl and mix well.
Distribute between the muffin moulds and place on a baking tray. Cook in a preheated oven until set and just starting to colour on top.
Leave to cool in the tin and carefully pop out and serve!
