    Or you could make a low fat jelly and put them in that, I do it with the frozen fruit mixes sometimes , I think it's ? 1/2 syn for a quarter, then have vlf fromage frais, or syn LF creme fraiche.
    They make wonderful chutney, and wine!

    1. Wash the blackberries and place them in a saucepan with the apples and 2 tablespoons of water. Simmer gently over a low heat until the fruit is soft. Add sweetener to taste and leave to cool
    2. Sieve to remove any pips making a purée. Dissolve the gelatine in the remaining water in a bowl placed over a pan of simmering water. Stir in the lemon juice and leave to cool.
    3. Add the gelatine to the fruit purée and blend thoroughly. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the fruit mixture using a metal spoon. Pour into 4 serving dishes and chill until set. Decorate with the cream.

    Syn free crumble alternative

    I just mix up I HEB portion per person of Porridge Oats (whole ones) with sweetener sugar & water instead of milk, spread over the top of the fruit (I cook the fruit with a little added sweetener in the oven of about 20 mins first), then spray with butter frylite (avail from Tesco generally) & cook in the oven for about 1/2 hour.

    Not sure about the syns in the fruit, I generally use apple & blackberry & give it a few syns. Cooked fruit is not that high in syns. Serve it with syn free vanilla ice cream:

    1 large tub VLF Fromage Frais
    2 Syn Free Vanilla Yogs
    Sweetener to taste
    A little vanilla essence
    A dash of milk from your allowance

    Mix it all together. Pop it in the Ice Cream Maker, then about 40 mins later enjoy!!

    I've only tried this in an Ice Cream maker, but I'm sure it would work just in the freezer, you'd probably need to stir it every few hours.
