Slimming World Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Beef Stroganoff is an absolute classic, but it always seems that no matter where you get the recipe from, it has cream, cheese and so much bad stuff in it. I wanted to make a slimming world beef stroganoff with as little of the bad stuff in as possible but still keeping the recipe nice for everyone!

This isn’t a Slimming World Beef Stroganoff with quark because I hate having to use quark in slimming world recipes all the time, instead, I use Philadelphia cream cheese and think it tastes so much better! Philadelphia cream cheese can also be used as your healthy extra otherwise it will need to have a syn value.

When it comes to the best beef stroganoff recipe I think this is, on the slimming world plan anyway. That being said I’m sure that others are just as nice but I like to blow my own trumpet now and again.

Healthy Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Making a healthy Slimming World Beef Stroganoff is actually a lot easier than you might think. If you’re like my partner you might want less dairy in your diet and that’s fine. If you want to make this a dairy free beef stroganoff recipe all you have to do is use coconut milk instead or normal milk. Coconut milk will help you maintain that creamy beef stroganoff texture.

A dairy-free Slimming World Beef Stroganoff for someone who is looking to have stroganoff but with less calories and syns. It’s also better for the body, less dairy that is although I can’t imagine ever quitting on cheese that’s for sure! I mean I couldn’t imagine this Spicy Chicken Lasagne recipe without cheese!
