    what do you have when you get a sugar craving , ????

    sometimes i like a bit ice cream or a cup cake , but have no control over portions with these so need not to buy them

    but .......i still fancy something sweet sometimes ....any ideas ???

    thanks in advance :)

    Options every time for me. I drink it or sometimes mix it into quark for a mousse type pud.

    Yogurt hits the spot too and you are lucky in the U.K. you can get so many lovely flavours, orange and chocolate etc.

    Or just simply syn a mars bar.

    I'm only a beginner but so far I like:

    Mini-milk 1.5 syns
    Fruit Pastille Ice lolly 3 syns
    (Both give me the ice cream fix without worrying about portion size)

    Also the alpen light / quark / options cheesecake (search the recipes and it's there).

    Milky bars are quite low syn but unbelievably sweet,and they're small, so if you buy the individual ones you've got built in portion control again.

    Also if you do a search for SW-style jelly sweets, the whole recipe is only 2 syns so you can eat loads of them!!!! One batch makes 30 sweets if I make them in chocolate moulds!

    Also there's a recipe knocking around somewhere for syn-free cake with syn-free lemon curd, I've not tried it but worth trying?

    I have recently taken a liking to mini meringes....i normally have berries and greek yogurt for dessert in the evenings...and adding a few of these to make like an eton mess is amazing :) Only 1 syn each! And fab for portion control!

    My 3.5lb gain last week was due to a large box of about 60 of the little *******. Self sabotage at its finest.

    I keep the numbers in the house low now.

    I make the SW quickie cheesecake with 2 alphen light bars (1 heb or 6 syns) 2 white choc options mixed into a tub of quark (4 syns) and then spread all over the mashed up alpen light bars = 10 syns for the whole cheesecake or 1 heb and 4 syns for the whole cheesecake - but most times I can only eat half anyway !

    3 times a week for us. love it.

    I love the cadbury light mousses (3 syns) and the treat size buttons (4 syns)...I prefer buttons to other treat size chocs as you can make them last a bit longer than the little bars that are gone in two bites :eek:

    meringue nests are 3syns and really good for a real sugar fix, i often have one crushed over fruit and a muller.
    I always try to have a pudding planned and try to keep them at 3 syns.
    All the Hi Fi bars are yummy and the Kellogs fibre plus are YUM.
    The sugar cravings do subside after a while.
