Skinny Dips

I came across these Skinny Dips whilst at the BBC Good Food Show a couple of weeks ago. There are a range of different sauces/dips to choose from and they are all gluten free, low in salt and sugar and also suitable for vegans. That doesn’t mean they are lacking in flavour though! They all taste delicious and are perfect for Slimming World members as they are very low in syns. The values below are for a serving of one level tablespoon.

Skinny Dips Tomato Ketchup– 4 Calories (0 Syns)
Skinny Dips BBQ Sauce– 6 Calories (0 Syns)
Skinny Dips Sweet Curry Sauce (Chip Shop Curry Sauce)- 7 Calories (0 Syns)
Skinny Dips Vegan Peri Mayonnaise– 26 Calories (1 Syns)
Skinny Dips Vegan Salad Dressing– 38 Calories (2 Syns)

I have recently come across some Crucial Sauces which are sooo tasty! I get them in my local Farm Foods but I believe you can also buy them in B&M bargains. I haven’t tried the whole range yet, only the BBQ sauce and the Mint sauce.
