    I'd use fromage frais. Or you could use half fat creme fraiche, the syns would be lower than for cream.

    Still - 3tbsp double cream would be 10.5 syns, between 4 it's only just over 2.5 syns a portion so actually not too bad!

    I prefer FF for Carbonara but I use quark. Quark makes a thicker coating to the pasta that FF but either work.
    FF is easier to get in my local shops so I use that.

    Nothing will be as nice as the cream, and that's what syns are for.

    0% Greek yooghurt would be lovely as it is quite thick & creamy.

    quark is nice if you whip it with a couple of spooons of sweetner, its makes it creamer consistency. but for your receipe I'd use cream and syn it.
