Chocolate Essence

Right I’d read on life online that adding choc essence to total 0% is a nice syn free dessert.

I searched high and low for this and finally found it in Waitrose and paid almost £4 for it in the search of chocolate syn free dessert/yogurt (I’m vegetarian so FF Activia and Onken are my choices neither of which do a choc/toffee /dessert style yogurt).

Anyways I was looking at the bottle and notices the main ingredient was 45% proof Alcohol unlike other extracts and flavourings I have used where it’s been glycol or water.

Please can someone let me know if this is still syn free? And if not where I can get some syn free choc essence?

I’m going back to group after a two week break on Thursday but don't have any lifeline online access till then.

Just getting back on track after having at least four non-SW friendly meals in the past two weeks!!

I became disenchanted as they could not correctly weigh me as I’m a wheelchair user who can't stand and my spasms caused my weight to go up/down by a stone within the same session (we initially tried averaging out my weight over three measurements but it was too large a gap) and although I was lucky that my consultant offered that I could attend free without getting weighed and come to Image Therapy, I thought I would feel stupid every week having to explain I have no idea of my weightloss especially as I have very little stomach muscle control so my tummy will always stick out no matter how much I loose, so it can be hard to gauge at times.

Phew sorry for pouring my heart out but I’m determined to get back on track!

I bought some coconut essence - tried adding it to Natural Yog and blurgh!!! Disgusting!!!! Such as shame as hankering after coconut yog :(
for coconut essence can't you just mix a tsp of malibu into your yoghurt ? 1 tsp would only be about half a syn ;) ... 25ml = 2.5 syns so 5ml would be 0.5 syns :)

How was the chocolate essence? did it make the yog taste of chocolate or not really?


Slow but sure....
What about trying a bottle of 'Camp' coffee - it's been around for years and was the only way to drink coffee before instant coffee came into being - 1 level teaspoon is ½ a syn.

That's my favourite solution
