Chocolate French Toast with Strawberry Sauce

Slimming Eats Chocolate French Toast with Strawberry Sauce - dairy free, vegetarian, Slimming World and Weight Watchers friendly

Summer holidays have started here in Canada, so I thought it would be great to take the kids strawberry picking while they are still in season. The strawberries grown here are so lovely and sweet, and we filled 5 containers for just $10 which was great.

Of course next morning I just had to make a yummy breakfast where we could enjoy them, so decided on some french toast. I have been loving using Sweet Freedom Choc Shot as a low syn chocolate flavour, so added it to the egg mixture to make a delicious chocolate french toast to compliment the fresh sweet strawberries. I had so many strawberries that I also decided to make up a strawberry sauce which I could add to my french toast or American Style Pancakes or that the kids could spoon on top of some ice cream. Remember though that fruit not in it’s raw form is synned, so if you cook, blend, or it comes from a can etc it then becomes synned. If you want to keep the syns down you can just serve with fresh strawberries, but I had so many strawberries to use and this was worth it for a treat.

Low Syn Frappucino

Slimming Eats Low Syn Frappucino - dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, Slimming World (SP) and Weight Watchers friendly

In the summer a frappucino from starbucks is my weakness, so I was determined to come up with my own low synned version that I can enjoy at home. This was lovely and refreshing. I love coffee, but when it is hot, sometimes you just need a cold drink. This can easily be varied too with different flavourings, the basics to get the flavour and iced coffee will be the same.

Soon the kids will be on their summer holidays, so I am trying to come up with more recipes for on the go when we are on days out that I can pack up into a picnic. Finger foods always work best and these little bites are delicious. You could add some other veg or even some other protein into these too to mix them up a bit.
