In Slimming World groups up and down the land, the dreaded C word has been mentioned. Yes, you guessed it…Slimming World Christmas Tasters have arrived!
Whether it’s working out how much weight you want to lose before Christmas day, or deciding on a Christmas menu, there will be lots of discussions about the festive season.
During the second week of October, Slimming World are launching their Christmas taster events.
Over in our Facebook Group, we get lots of people asking us for ideas of food tasters that they can take to their group.
Don’t panic – we’ve got you covered!
Our favourite Slimming World Christmas Tasters!
How about a taste of Chocolate Christmas Pud? These Half Syn Chocolate Christmas pudding cakes won’t break your Syn allowance either – just half a Syn each!
All the flavour of Christmas, including the fruits and spices, but so much lighter than traditional Christmas pud.
A great addition to a Christmas buffet and perfect for Slimming World Christmas Tasters!
For a delicious treat, we have these 2 Syn Apple Strudels.
Spicy and sweet, these would be amazing served warm, with a drop of low syn custard or even some squirty cream!
Ooooh! You’ll be so popular if you turn up to group with these beauties!
These Low Syn Mini Christmas Cheesecakes are the perfect party dessert. Packed with all the flavours of Christmas and rich and creamy to boot!
They’ll certainly play a starring role on the buffet table this season, and at just 1 Syn each, everyone will love them!
Every Christmas buffet has them, but ours are Syn free! Here’s the Syn Free Sausage Rolls recipe! You could even make them bite-sized, so that they’ll appeal to everyone.
We usually have to avoid the pastry laden offerings on a buffet table, but these have been a game-changer!
As we all know, the hot topic in Slimming World circles has been pasties, and more importantly….WRAPS!! (Maybe you should put them on your Christmas list?!)
Our 1 Syn Corned Beef Pasties have been really popular over on our Facebook page. Why not try making smaller pasties? They’d be ideal for Slimming World Christmas Tasters.
Another great addition to a buffet would be this Syn free Salmon Mousse.
We’ve served ours piped onto rings of cucumber and celery chunks, but you could choose to serve as a dip if you prefer.
Salmon mousse sounds very indulgent, so it’s perfect for Christmas! These would certainly look good on the table at your Slimming World Christmas Tasters.
A sure-fire favourite favourite at taster nights are our Syn free Sweet Potato Pakoras These are really easy to make, because they have only 2 ingredients!
Crispy, spicy and totally yummy, these little gems will fly off the table. Make sure you save one for yourself!
Of course, our Low Syn Samosas make a perfect accompaniment to the Syn free Pakoras.
Made using filo pastry, these are so much lower in Syns than the Samosas you’d get from the takeaway.
These Samosas are crunchy little parcels, full of flavour and super tasty.
A really quick taster choice if you’re short on time are these Syn free BLT Bites.
You can make them up in advance and leave them in the fridge to grab on your way to your Slimming World Christmas Tasters. What could be easier? These are mostly Speed too, so that’s an extra bonus!
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without Pigs in Blankets! Why waste 4 or 5 Syns on shop-bought ones, when you can have these for half a Syn each!
These would be ideal for both Slimming World Christmas Tasters and Christmas dinner!
These look really festive and would make a great addition to a Christmas buffet table!
Last year, my sister held a pre-Christmas party, and asked Mr Marks and Mr Spencer to cater for it. One of the highlights was a tray of mini Yorkshire Puddings with beef and horseradish.
Fortunately, we have our own, Slimming World friendly, Half Syn Mini Beef Horseradish Yorkshire Puds, and they’ll look fab sitting on your Slimming World Christmas Tasters table!
Our Chicken Satay recipe is a real winner. We were asked to come up with a buffet version of our 1 Syn Chicken Satay recipe, by someone in our Facebook Group and here it is!
Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers. They’re perfect for the Slimming World Christmas Tasters.
If there’s one drink that screams Christmas, it’s Baileys. But as it’s quite high in syns, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to enjoy my usual tipple over the festive season whilst staying on plan.
These little Chocolate Baileys Truffles are the perfect little boozy hit and just 1 Syn each!! These little beauties will be perfect for Slimming World Christmas Tasters.
You just can’t talk about Christmas without mentioning Mince Pies. It’s the law! Luckily, we have a 1 Syn Mince Pie recipe which taste just like the real thing!
The inspiration for this recipe comes from a lady called Justine, from our Facebook group.
She asked for some help with what to take for her group taster, and wanted to do something with mincemeat. So, we came up with these. I took them to my Slimming World Christmas Taster last year, and they went down very well!
This Syn Free Beetroot And Mint Hummus is a great choice for a taster event at your Slimming World group.
You can prep it in advance and keep in the fridge until it’s time to go. Just chop up a load of Speed vegetables to dip into it and you’re good to go!
Pizza is a party food favourite, however, we all know it’s not very Slimming World friendly. So we came up with these 1 Syn Each Mini Pizza Bites.
These are very moreish, but as they’re only 1 Syn each, it wouldn’t matter if you accidentally ate more than 1!
We all know the old song….’Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…..Jack Frost nipping at your nose!’ I’ll spare you my crooning, but picture the scene, if you will!
Chestnuts are a Christmas favourite, and these Low Syn Chestnut and Chocolate tarts won’t do your waistline any harm at 1 Syn each.
Well, we had to mention it sooner or later, right? Christmas needs Turkey, doesn’t it! These Syn Free Spiced Turkey Bites are served with a Low Syn Minty Dip.
Of course, you don’t have to make the dip, but it goes soooo well with the Spiced Turkey flavour.
Another crowd-pleaser comes in the form of our Syn Free Caramelised Onion Hummus.
Quick and easy to make, this is another taster choice that you can make in advance and refrigerate.
Just pop it into a dish, add crudites and dash off to your Slimming World Christmas Tasters.
Chocolate crispy cakes are a perennial favourite, no matter how old you are!
What could be better than these perfect little Low Syn Chocolate Crispy Christmas Puds for your contribution to the Slimming World Christmas Tasters?
After all, Christmas Party canapes wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats.
