Almost Syn Free Apple Crumble Cheesecake
If you ask me, it’s pretty hard to beat proper cheesecake for just 1 syn per slice! This is nothing like your average Slimming World cheesecake, which tends to be like yogurt jelly (with no cheese in sight!), this is a PROPER cheesecake, just like my much loved ‘Syn Free No Bake Berry Cheesecake‘! This cheesecake is just 1 syn per slice, which comes from the cooked apple used in the base, and each slice is half of your Healthy Extra B and just a third of your Healthy Extra A!
Full of autumnal flavours this is perfect as the weather turns colder, I’ve bought the flavours and textures of a classic apple crumble and mixed them with an utterly amazing cheesecake…and boy does it work! Technically you could count a slice of this as as syn free, if you want to work out how much extra the cooked apple could add to your HexB, but frankly I can’t do the maths and I think one syn is pretty awesome!
Slimming World is the best, and only diet, I will need to be on in my life, because it’s not a diet! Name me one other healthy eating plan where you can eat a cheesecake like this….you can’t! By using part of your Healthy Extras you can eat cheesecake without any guilt whatsoever, which is pretty amazing if you ask me. Slimming World has built the plan in such a way that you never once feel like you’re on a diet, it’s a lifestyle plan which you can absolutely be on for the rest of your life. It’s a plan that can help you lose the weight that you need to lose, and help you stay there when you’ve reached your target. I’ve been struggling recently, but I know that Slimming World, and the plan that it has created, will always be there to help get me back on track! It’s an amazing feeling! Hopefully this cheesecake can help you stay on track when you need something sweet, make it, keep it in the fridge all week and indulge without going off plan…ENJOY!

1 syn per slice when cut into 10 slices, using half of your daily Healthy Extra B and a third of your Healthy Extra A. Note, some people have decided to start synning sweetener in larger quantities. Personally I don't do this as it has never effected my weight loss, but feel free if you want to.
