Now for as long as I can remember, I have always been a fan of Coca-Cola, but I never knew that you can cook with it and make some amazing recipes, this Slimming World Diet Coke Chocolate Cake (Low Syn) is just one of the amazing recipes I have.
Slimming World Diet Coke Chocolate Cake
Now if you think this cake is going to kill your healthy eating, then no, not at all.
I have managed to make some tweaks, so now the recipe is coming in at 9 syns per slice if you use Jordan’s Skinny Sweetener, otherwise, it is 10 syns per slice.
As this Slimming World Diet Coke Chocolate Cake would work for a celebration, it can be made for any occasion. One thing I am sure of is that people won’t know it is a healthy cake.
I am sure you have seen recipes all over the internet for low syn cakes, the will use scan bran or something else like that. Well, that is not a cake.
This is seriously the best cake that I have ever made on Slimming World and at only 9 syns, you can afford to have a treat and know that you are still on point.
Alternatively, if you are wanting a recipe for cupcakes, follow this recipe and put it into cupcake cases instead. It should make around 16 cupcakes, that would make 7 syns per cupcake.
Is Coca-Cola ok to drink on Slimming World?
Original Coca-Cola certainly is not ok to drink if you’re following Slimming World, however, Diet Coke and Coke Zero are perfectly fine, because they don’t contain sugar.
There are a number of low calorie drinks on the market, Pepsi Max, Diet Lemonade and even better, water. You can drink tea and coffee, you just have to remember how much milk you are using.
