Syn Free Gravy | Slimming World

Syn free gravy is just the best thing to put all over any roast dinner, sausages & mash, or anything you so desire! This is our recipe for Syn free gravy, but if you prefer to make it with meat juices, see our other Syn Free Gravy recipe.


Firstly, I’m going to address the issue of is this a tweak or not. Personally I don’t think it is, but it’s up to you if you want to syn it or not. For the amount that you’re going to use, and as long as 1/3 of your plate is speed food then I don’t see the issue.

Syn Free Gravy

Gravy browning counts as syns, but seeing as you’re using 4 drops for the entire recipe – I wouldn’t bother synning them, but again this is up to you.

This is what you need to look out for when looking for gravy browning!

Now that we have that out of the way, we can talk all about this amazing Syn Free Gravy recipe. It is the easiest thing to make, just whack the veg in a pan, add your stock pots & gravy browning then blitz.

Can I freeze this Syn Free Gravy?

You can prepare this in advance, it’ll keep for a few days. More importantly it will freeze – so you could make up a big pan, and freeze it into handy portions for when ever you fancy some gravy.

If you don’t have a stick blender, then put it in a food processor. Have neither? Then get a stick blender. I think we use ours more than nearly any other gadget in the kitchen. Especially useful to make soup.

We love our little Kenwood stick blender and all of it’s attachments. Great for making Syn free hummus too!

  1. Doing this right now to go with your toad in.the hole recipe.
    I’ve boiled and blended everything, but still a little grainy I texture. Could that be the potato? Maybe I needed to boil a bit longer. I’ve blended it for a good few blitzes.

    1. Hi Deborah
      Yes you may have to cook the potato a bit more as it won’t liquidise quite as well if it’s slightly under cokked

  2. Beautiful thick gravy, (I don’t like thin runny gravy), tastes just like the gravy I had when I was little. Thank you for the recipe. 🙂

  3. I make the gravy and then put my left over chicken from the roast in and cook it for a good 20 mins (no skin or fat). The chicken is sooooo tender and yummy we have it with speed carrots, cauli and broccoli and baked spud 😊. Brilliant recipe and if there’s any left over it makes a fab soup for work the next day 😊
