    LOL! That's not high in syns! :D Very yummy and well worth the syns.

    By the way you would just use it in the same way you would fromage frais.

    I use creme fraiche on SF jelly and/or chopped fruit. It's very creamy (even the LF ones) so you only need one tbsp (or 2!) so it's a low syn desert.

    I've also used it like sour cream, and to make a riata for curry when I've run out of 0% greek yogurt.

    If you slice a banana and freeze the pieces, you can add them to a blender with creme fraiche and a tsp of honey. Comes out like an icecream type dessert. It is designed to be eaten immediately though.

    Plus if you're one of the people who diesnt use syns very often during the day, then 3tbs of creme fraiche at 4.5 syns isn't horrendous.

    Although admittedly I could easily eat my 15 syns worth of it in a oney with fruit.

    But then its within syns anyway.

    You do realise that technically you are supposed to syn the banana if blending it? Sounds yummy though and well worth the syns!
