    Hi, I am hoping someone can help. Years ago (when I did slimming world for the first time) there was a recipe for sin free alcohol free Pimms.
    It had diet lilt and balsamic vinegar but I can't remember the proportions. Can anyone remember it or have any other idea's for something other than diet pop. I am having friends over next week and want to prove that slimming world doesn't have to be boring.
    I am also looking for sin free canopys if you have any ideas?

    Many Thanks

    Failing that, I hope someone comes up with the recipies for you :D

    For canapes.... why don't you do little smoked salmon roll ups?
    Spread slices of smoked salmon with cottage cheese or VLF soft cheese with garlic and herbs and roll up. Cut into little pieces and push a cocktail stick into each one.
    If you can get it, the Eat Honestly smooth cottage cheese with garlic and herbs works very well for this.

    You could make a tuna pate (whizz tuna with fromage frais and seasoning) and spread onto little pieces of ryvita, break them into pieces - it looks random but they go like little triangles and look good!

    How about little fruit kebabs? Cocktails sticks with pieces of fresh pineapple, melon and grapes for example?

    Little salad kebabs too, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and pepper onto cocktail sticks.

    Serve cherry tomatoes on the vine if you can get them, they look lovely.

    Hope this helps!

    cocktailprincess Still rockin' it

    Just to add a couple of suggestions to jaylou's fantastic list:

    Make a frittata (omlette with chopped cooked potatoes and any other free food) and cut into triangles and pop on cocktail sticks

    Prawn skewers with a sweet chilli dip

    Get a packet of cooked chicken tikka breast pieces and make a yogurt, cucumber and mint raita for dipping

    Boil some eggs, slice in half lengthways, scoop out all the yolks and mix them with some very low fat mayo and pipe them back into the holes and sprinkle with paprika

    Potato wedges (made like the chips) serve with raita (they look really cute if you use small new potatoes- less clumsy for canapes)

    ohhhhhhhhhh- am making myself hungry!!!

    Hope you have a lovely evening xxxxxx

    metrognome is getting better at it

    this was in the magazine once
    2 slices of wholemeal bread,
    5 laughing cow light cheeses
    2 quorn sausages

    roll out each slice of bread to flatten, then spread the cheese on both pieces then place a sausage in the middle on the diagonal and wrap the bread round.
    secure with a cocktail stick if needed and cook in the oven until crispy leave to cool or eat hot.

    they are quite nice, you could cut them into bite size pieces
