    Added some notes below - It has cream, oil and alcohol in it so it was never going to be a great choice but can be adapted.


    You could substitute frylight for the oil and fromage frais/yoghurt for the creme fraiche then you would only have to syn the cider

    I think you can get fat free creme fraiche, i know there is a weight watchers 1 but not sure on the syns.

    The WW one is half a syn per tablespoon compared to 1.5 syns for the reduced fat creme fraiche. But 7oz is still a lot of creme fraiche. I haven't heard of fat free creme fraiche in this country.

    Absolutely - it makes for far greater variety in what you eat. I don't understand people that will only do recipes from SW publications - they are missing out on so much!
