    Hi :-)

    I went to a taster session last week and from memory there were:
    Mikado sticks with fruit skewered on
    Fresh peppers with a syn free hummus and a yoghurt based dip
    Curry loaf
    Syn free quiche
    Smash scones (savoury)
    Half syn roulade
    Oven baked spicy chickpeas
    Sw cheesecake

    If you need any recipes simply pop it into google- or use the minimins search tool, they are all common sw searches :-)

    I bought two swiss rolls when I did something the other week, I also did the fake rochers.

    There were also syn free mini quiches (egg, small bit of milk, bacon, spring onion and general seasoning) pork balls, chicken jerk bites (those were lovely!!)
    There was also a low syn chocolate cake and a low syn carrot cake, a curry loaf and some peach pudding thing made with quark peach mullers and peach jelly (or something similar lol)

    but yeah, that's everything that I can remember that was at our taster evening.

    I've made cinnamon rolls (sheet of low fat puff pastry cut in half and sprinkled with cinnamon and sweetener, each half rolled up and sliced, then baked in the oven. Can get about 70 out if it and they are a syn each)

    Brownies which makes 15 and are a syn each

    I've taken the Iceland duck skewers which can be cooked or just defrosted but are better cooked and are 1 syn for the box of 12

    Someone brought salmon pate to our last one which was delicious - smoked salmon, quark and lemon juice all blitzed up - with crudités

    80g FF yogurt (I used vanilla muller)
    40g cocoa (7 syns)
    40g porridge oats (7 syns OR HexB)
    60ml Almond milk (I swapped this for 60ml skimmed and synned at 1syn)
    20-30g sweetener
    1 semi heaped tsp baking powder (0.5 syns)
    1egg
    1tsp vanilla essence
    Pinch salt

    Bung everything in a blender and whizz together. Pour it into a lined/greased baking tin (I used a silicone one or muffin cases works too) gas Mark 6 (about 160 ish) for 15-20 mins

    When cooked cut into small pieces.

    Am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the duck skewers are 1 syn per skewer not per box. We were told that loads of people have made this mistake

    I'm going to query it with my consultant (shes the one that said it was per skewer) as this is off the sw site and it definitely reads as 1 syn per pack. There'll be a lot of happy people in my group!!!

    Product Extra Easy Original Green
