Lemon Meringue Cheesecake | “Love lemon meringue pie and cheesecake? Well this is the best of both worlds. Great any time of year and sure to impress your guests.”

Slimming World diets are a great way to control weight-gain. But we still crave sweet treats, so our selection of syn free desserts will give you ideas.

Many people follow the Slimming World diet plan and enjoy syn free desserts as part of their calorie-controlled diet.

I also take great care of my diet. Not for weight-control reasons but, because I have multiple sclerosis and certain foods can aggravate my condition. 

You may ask why there is a need for syn free desserts. If someone is concerned about their weight, surely, foregoing desserts is a very small inconvenience.

However, I may not be the best person to pass judgement on the benefits or otherwise of diet compatible desserts. Because, I have a weight problem of my own.
