I posted on Instagram a while back about some of the Sweet Freedom products I got my hands on, including: Sweet Freedom Syrup ‘fruit syrup for natural sweetness’ and Choc Shot - ‘all-natural liquid chocolate’. These products are all natural, Gluten Free, Vegan Society Approved, and only 14 calories per teaspoon (This makes them a half a syn per teaspoon people). They also are totally free from chemical processing of any type.
I have to say that this range have since opened the doors to so many delicious recipes, and curbed many a craving of mine! While I've tried all of the flavours, I'll just review their top two products here to give you the best sense of what they are about.
Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup
When I first saw this I was thinking - this looks great - not watery at all, rather its golden and luxurious in texture. But how would I use this now? I tried it on top of my porridge with some blueberries and it was gorgeous. Also, a little goes a very long way - one teaspoon was plenty. I've since used it in my coffee (I now prefer it to sugar and save 1.5 syns in the process) This was truly delicious and a perfect alternative to sugar / honey / maple syrup / water (well, I'd drink it!) It's also nice for baking. You can see a recipe for oat cookies here where I used this syrup in place of sugar, it gave a lovely golden colour.
Sweet Freedom Choc Shot Liquid Chocolate
One for the chocoholics! The bottle brands this as a hot chocolate (and it makes a gorgeous, lump free hot choc), however it's a lot more versatile than that. You can use this for a burst of authentic, chocolatey heaven with anything you fancy. I did loads of recipes with this below are just the ones I got on camera!
If you are interesting in trying these out, find a list of their stockists here.
