Syn Free Strawberry Muller Lights for Slimming World. Today we are bringing you creamy homemade strawberry muller lights using fresh strawberries, that are oh so delicious!
In late 2018, did you want to cry over your fridge full of muller lights at the idea that Slimming World would no longer be counting strawberry muller lights as Syn Free? Well if that was you, then we feel your pain and have a fantastic syn free muller lights solution for you.
Firstly, let me tell you that I used to have a huge Muller Light addiction. Back in the days of living in England, we would buy a tray of them from Asda and over the course of the week they would be all gobbled up.
Dominic’s favourite was the banana custard and I was always in love with the toffee flavour. Kyle also had a soft spot for them too.
Fast forward to living in Portugal and all of a sudden these delicious Muller Lights were very expensive. We were going from paying 20p in the UK for them to paying 80p for them. All of a sudden they were very expensive and no longer felt worth buying.
We bought them for treats every now and again, but that was it.
But what made up stop eating Muller Lights forever and ever, is that we discovered how many spoonfuls of sugar was in each one and just because they were light, didn’t mean that the muller lights was good for your diet.
At that point, I hated the fact that Slimming World was always advertising them. I mean why are they advertising something that was so unhealthy?
Fast forward 6 years and I am delighted that they have no longer made them Syn Free, as we need to control the amount we have. Otherwise we might as well just eat sugar from the bag all day instead!
About 4 years ago I stopped buying any flavoured yoghurts. Instead I opt for buying Greek Yoghurt, Quark or Fromage Frais and use this instead.
Choose a delicious plain yoghurt that you love that isn’t full of sugar or e numbers.
Then add in:
And you have your own healthy and Syn Free Muller Lights.
- Add apple and cinnamon for an apple flavour
- Add vanilla essence for vanilla flavour
- Add strawberries for strawberry flavour
- Add mixed berries for a fruit of the forest flavour
Or whatever Muller Light used to get you excited. I know the main ones are now just one Syn each, so it is hardly going to affect your weight loss too much, but for me its about health benefits and the price we pay.
When I can get a HUGE 1 kilo tub of plain yoghurt for 2 euros and it will make 10 yoghurt portions, this brings the price right down!
But don’t just think of the cost of the Muller Lights, also think of those flavoured desserts you buy your kids and how you can make something better at home instead.
Or make yourself a childlike dessert using my Syn Free Muller Lights. I love to make a dessert in a glass with some strawberries on top. It is delicious and you will be amazed by the fact that it is in fact SYN FREE.
Just look at it, I bet you could finish my Syn Free Strawberry Muller Light too!
Syn Free Strawberry Muller Lights
My Syn Free Strawberry Muller Lights you can have either chilled or frozen. Above you can see my Syn Free Muller Lights frozen. My kids love their frozen treats and are obsessed with grabbing them out of the freezer whenever they want one. Its easy for saving leftover strawberries as they go out of season and for sugar cravings. If you are eating something slowly, then you’re more likely to eat less of it.
You can also fridge these strawberry muller lights and just have them as you want them. Or include the kids in making them and they will love it.
To make your Syn Free Strawberry Muller Lights I used the following ingredients:
- Fat Free Fromage Frais
- Fresh Strawberries
- Vanilla Essence
- Red Food Colouring
Just remember on Slimming World (at the time of writing this) all fat free flavourless yoghurts are Syn Free. You could use fat free fromage frais, fat free Greek Yoghurt, or fat free quark.
As well as this flavoured essence such as vanilla essence is also Syn Free and makes it perfect for flavouring your yoghurt.
But as well as this, stevia and other low calorie sweetners are also Syn Free.
Using a hand mixer, mix up your ingredients and hey presto you have a delicious homemade Syn Free Strawberry Yoghurt.
You could also use this example to make your own banana split, ice cream sundae and whatever other sweet delights you love.
