    Spirits with low cal mixers but steer clear of the fruit juices cos they will boost the syn value!
    For free snacks, how about this - do a load of carrot, pepper and cucumber sticks and then make some dips with FF natural yoghurt - add cucumber and mint for tzatziki, add garlic and chives for a garlicky dip and if you have time, why not whizz some chick peas with garlic, seasoning, lemon juice and a bit of water to make hummous. All syn free (on green or EE) and very enjoyable!

    Welcome along and have a lovely night tonight.

    i love cocktails and i have really missed them because since i found out the syn value of orange juice, i just cant bring myself to drink it!

    I always crave fruity fresh drinks tho so try using things like Fanta Zero, 7up zero etc. and mixing with low calorie cordial/squash and squeezing fresh juice in instead of buying it pre-packaged

    IT's a good time to get your friends experimenting and see what you can come up with!

    Jaylou has some brill ideas for snacks which i will use myself next time! so thankyou!

    Have a brilliant night!
