Syn Free Sweets (Haribo Style)

This is one of those really simple recipe ideas that truly makes dieting worth it.

It's almost like cheating!

These Slimming World jelly sweets are Syn Free for the whole batch!

These really are just like those Haribo jelly sweets with the white bottoms and jelly tops.
Once set they look like this:

I personally use a few of these sweet molds http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00C65VV96/ (you can pick them up for cheap of ebay too). Alternatively you can use ice cube trays or a baking dish (and the cut into squares after they set).

300ml Robinsons, No Added Sugar Fruit Squash (any flavor).
3 x 12g Gelatine Sachets
175g Pot of Muller Light Yoghurt

Make up 300ml of really strong fruit squash in a jug.
As recommended by wlt27 make it up really strong - at least 50% cordial (maybe more depending on taste). I'm not sure if the double strength Robinsons is Syn Free (I think it is). Maybe it would be better.

In a separate jug/mug add the gelatine to 260ml of boiling water (always add gelatine to liquid, not the other way around). Mix and make sure all the gelatine dissolves (add a touch more boiling water if needed).

Pour the Muller Light into a bowl.

With a tablespoon, put two (2) spoonfuls of the gelatine liquid in the fruit squash and one (1) spoonful of the gelatine liquid in Muller Light: continue to divide the gelatine like this (2:1 ratio). It should divide up roughly 10 tablespoons in the squash and 5 tables spoons in the Muller Light.

Give the squash and the Muller and good stir to make sure the gelatine is thoroughly mixed (if using the same spoon mix the squash first otherwise you'll get Yoghurt in the juice).

Pour the squash into the mold. About 1/2 cm in each one. Unless you have a few mold trays you'll probably have some left over. Any leftover you can pour in a flat base dish or ice-cube tray.

Put squash (molds) in the freezer and allow to set. It shouldn't take too long. Check to make sure it doesn't freeze.

Once set (or at least the top jelly skin has set), remove from the freezer.

Now it's time to give the Muller another thorough mix and with a teaspoon (alternatives: syringe or icing bag) spoon about 1/4cm of Muller in each jelly mold.

Put the molds in the fridge and leave until completely set.

And there you have it. A whole batch of Syn free sweets

Is it really Syn free? I thought juice was 1 Syn per 100ml so doesn't that make this 3 Syns per batch?

Absolutely! Robinsons No Added Sugar Fruit Squash is one of the few squashes that's completely Syn free There are 1 or two cheaper syn free alternatives but can't think of them off the top of my head

Oh wow, thanks for this so much! My kids (and me too) love Haribo but this will be so much better and probably cheaper too! I can get them to help as well, so that's a kiddie activity in the bag for the coming Easter school holiday!

This sounds really good. I would be interested to give it a go as I've never made sweets before.
