After the success of our 1 Syn Satay recipe, we thought we’d try and come up with a super Syn free Thai Green Curry.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Thai green curry usually contains a lot of coconut milk, which really makes the suns add up (sadly!). We used to cook with it a lot in our pre Slimming World days, and it’s probably one of the reasons why we piled on so much weight.
This Syn free Thai green curry is a little bit of a faff as you need to make the paste, then make the curry. It is worth it though!
You could make the paste up days in advance and freeze it into an ice cube tray, then just add it to what ever you like. It makes a fantastic base to a soup, full of flavour with a bit of heat!
The Alpo coconut drink that we use in this is 1 syn/100ml – and you can use 600ml of it for your HEA.
So with that in mind you can either Syn it at 2 syns a portion or a 1/3 of your HEA allowance.

Thai curries by tradition are quite runny, so don’t be too worried if it finishes up quite runny. We do like to thicken ours, and we do so by using something called Xanthan Gum.
Xanthan gum is syn free, gluten free and thickens pretty much anything. See the recipe below of how to thicken it using Xanthan gum.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Avocado or Coconut Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Thai Green Curry recipe.
