Christmas Party Tasters

In slimming groups up and down the land, the dreaded C word has been mentioned. Yes, you guessed it…CHRISTMAS!

Christmas Party Tasters | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

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.

Over in our Facebook Group, we get lots of people asking us for ideas of food tasters that they can take to their groups.

Don’t panic – we’ve got you covered!

Our favourite Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Christmas Party Tasters!

Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes

How about a taste of Chocolate Christmas Pud? These Chocolate Christmas pudding cakes won’t break your calorie allowance either – just 18 calories 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 & Weight Watchers Friendly Christmas Tasters!

Sausage Rolls

Every Christmas buffet has them, but ours are low calorie! Here’s the 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!

Corned Beef Pasties

As we all know, the hot topic in slimming circles has been pasties, and more importantly….WRAPS!!  (Maybe you should put them on your Christmas list?!)

Our Corned Beef Pasties have been really popular over on our Facebook page. Why not try making smaller pasties? They’d be ideal for Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Christmas Party Tasters.

Mince Pies

You just can’t talk about Christmas without mentioning Mince Pies. It’s the law! Luckily, we have a 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 & Weight Watchers Friendly Christmas Party last year, and they went down very well!

Pizza is a party food favourite, however, we all know it’s not very Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly. So we came up with these Mini Pizza Bites.
