RECIPE: Slimming World Jelly Sweets

How many does it serve? 2

How long does it take? 10 mins prep a couple of hours to set
 
What do i need?
– 2 sachets of sugar free jelly crystals (3 syns total – 1.5 each)
– 1 sachet of gelatine (usual 9g packets, i used Asda’s own)
– Muller Light (any flavour!)
– 1/2 pint of hot water
– Plastic jelly mould/Ice tray/shallow glass dish
           
How many syns? 3 syns for ALL OF THEM!

What do I do? 
– Mix the 2 jelly sachets and the gelatine powder into the 1/2 pint of hot water and mix well (unsure no lumps!)
– pour 2/3rds of the mixture into a plast jelly mould/ ice teay or flat glass dish. I personally use the shallow glass dish as to make sure there is still enough room for another layer of mixture.
– Place your jelly in a dish in the fridge for around 20/25 minutes or until set.
– Whist your jelly is setting in the fridge mix the whole muller light into the remaining mixture and stir well again.
– Once your jelly has set, pour your milky yogurt mixture of the top of the jelly slowly and carefully.
– Place in the fridge and wait till its set. Usually take a fair few hours, i left mine over night.
– Cut into square or whatever shapes take your fancy.

Nb. Once i’ve cut these up i store in containers in the fridge.

RECIPE: Slimming World Cheeseburger Bake

I found this recipe, or a take on it, from SkinnyTaste and i’ve edited it a little bit to be a SlimmingWorld friendly dinner or lunch! A lot of people have called this recipe a Cheeseburger casserole, but I’n my opinion its more of a ‘bake’.

If you love a good cheeseburger you’ll love this. Its SUPER tasty!

How many does it serve? 4 (or 2 if you’re really hungry!)

How long does it take? 25 minutes
 
What do i need?
– Extra Lean beef mince 375g
– Pasta 300g
– 1 can of chopped tomatoes
– Reduced Fat cheddar 40g (HEX A)
– 1 red pepper
– 1 onion finely chopped
– Mushrooms
– 2 garlic cloves / or a flat tablespoon of lazy garlic
– pinch of salt and pepper
– 1 tea spoon of paprika
– 4 tablespoons of Passata
– Jar of pickled gherkins
– Frylight
           
How many syns? 0, none, zero, zilch!
What do I do? 
Preheat the oven to 150c

Cook the pasta as per the packet instructions and put to one side

In a big frying pan, or wok if you fancy, spray some fry light and throw in all the chopped onions.
Cook the onions on a medium heat for 5 minutes until they’re soft.

Throw in the garlic and mince and cook on medium until browned.

Add in the pepper and any other veg you fancy, i threw in some mushrooms too.

Pour in the chopped tomatoes and passata along with the salt, pepper and paprika.

Now let the mixture bubble and thicken up a little.

Once everything looks good, and thickish grab the pasta you’ve put aside and carefully add to the same frying pan and mix the pasta and sauce together to evenly coat.

Spoon the mixture of pasta/mince/sauce into a oven proof dish, and sprinkle your cheese over the top.

Put the dish in the oven for around 15/20 mins until the cheese is all melted.

Serve with a sprinkling of cut up gherkins on top.

 ENJOY!
