The sun is making its annual appearance, the smell of BBQs and sun cream has started to fill the air, a festival of football and sport lies ahead and whether you’re flame grilling burgers, stuffing ice cream into a cone or looking for the perfect pancakes to act as a hangover cure, there is no better companion than Skinny sauces and syrups.
From BBQ sauce to banana bread, we’ve created a list of 6 ways your summer can be upgraded using some of the Skinny Food Co‘s best-loved treats and table sauces.
Smokey BBQ – Skinny Sauce
Chicken wings laden with smokey sauce, beef brisket coated in a thick layer of juicy brown BBQ sauce or succulent chicken thighs dripping with flavour having bathed in a bowl of Skinny Smokey BBQ sauce. Parcel Pete’s mouth is watering as he reads this and he’s not the only one.
If you want to give even the most seasoned Texas grill master a run for their money, without the sugar, fat or gluten that often make up a barbecue sauce, then Skinny BBQ sauce is the answer.
It’s also vegan friendly, so if you prefer corn ribs, barbecued cauliflower steaks or vegan wings, you’ve just found your perfect condiment.
Skinny sauce tomato ketchup
It may be free from sugar, fat and gluten, but the tomato ketchup by Skinny Food Co is far from flavourless.
Whether it’s on your morning fry up, slathered on a hot dog or on the side of your plate ready to dip your chips in, when you take a bite of anything covered in Skinny’s Tomato Ketchup, you’re met with all the comforting tomatoey goodness you know and love.
It’s rare to find a free-from product that is so close to its traditional counterpart, but this ketchup has now become a food cupboard staple here at the Groceries2Go HQ.
Skinny banana bread mix
If you’re not a condiment king or queen and you’re moreso craving a sweet treat, then Parcel Pete could be heading your way with the perfect remedy in the form of banana bread.
At the height of lockdown 1, 2 and 3, it felt like baking banana bread was a rite of passage; but thankfully, The Skinny Food Co has taken all the hard work out of the baking process with their Banana Bread Mix – making it easier and, arguably, tastier than the lockdown bakes we all produced over the last few months.
Other than the taste, we particularly love the fact that each slice is only 100 calories each! AND the mix only includes 100% natural flavours and colours.
There are also lots of ways to mix the Banana Bread Mix with other Skinny Food Co products to create unique flavours. You can check out some of their recipes by clicking here.
Kicking back and relaxing in the summer sun is one of life’s great pleasures; and having your favourite drink in hand can make any day better. Iced coffee offers the best of both worlds, it cools you down and offers a caffeine pick-me-up
170 million iced drinks are sold in the UK every year, but why not simply create your own?
Channelling your inner barista has never been easier. We’re speaking from experience when we say that Skinny syrups make any drink better!
Add a teaspoon of the salted caramel syrup to the bottom of your cup, add 250ml of cold milk and 40-50ml of coffee on top and voila, a salted caramel iced latte.
You can repeat the steps and switch out the syrup for either French Vanilla or Hazelnut Praline.
The perfect pancakes
You’ve created fluffy discs of pancake perfection, you’ve got your blueberries ready to decorate the perfect hangover cure, but have you got that perfect companion to smother across your breakfast?
Forget Lyle & Tate, Skinny Golden Syrup is where the real party is at.
Sweet, sticky, sumptuous and ridiculously good with pancakes, we like to think of Skinny Food Co’s Golden Syrup as the comfort blanket after a crazy night out; the condiment that lets you know that you will be back to your best. Just pour it on to your pancakes and let the good times roll.
If pancakes aren’t your thing, then fear not, this syrup also goes well with yoghurt, fruit and more, without adding a single calorie to your meal.
The ultimate salad dressing
Summers were made for salads and if you’re looking to break the mould and try something new, then give our Skinny Garlic Mayo, honey and mustard dressing a go.
All you need is a tablespoon of Skinny Garlic Mayo, a teaspoon of honey a teaspoon of wholegrain mustard and a dash of white wine vinegar.
Mix them all together and you’ve got yourself a great, low-calorie salad dressing.
