I’m a big fan of Bio-Synergy. I love their Skinny Water (the world’s first ‘functional water’, which contains active ingredients to boost metabolism and suppress sugar cravings, and all at just 2 calories a bottle), and their female-friendly Skinny Protein Bars have been top of my wishlist for a while now. To be honest, at less than 99 calories and just under 10g of protein, they should be at the top of every fit females wishlist.
So, you can imagine my excitement when I heard on Monday that Bio-Synergy had launched the “Skinny Mousse” – billed as the healthiest dessert on the market, it’s low in calories, carbohydrates, fat and sugar, and also contains the sugar suppressing Chromium as seen in their Skinny Water. It’s available in Chocolate (85 cals a pot) or Caramel (50 cals a pot) from Tesco.
No prizes for guessing that I immediately got my butt (post-gym, obviously) down to Tesco on Monday. That sugar-craving-suppressing Chromium is just what I need seeing as my work opened a tuck shop today, and pick and mix is my ‘healthy Soph’ kryptonite. I’d hoped for caramel but found that my local store only sold Chocolate – disappointment. On the other hand, they were being sold on a special introductory price of £1 – peaks and troughs.
What’s the verdict? Yummy, definitely yummy. There’s no telling it’s a ‘healthy’ version, and it’s much creamier than the usual low-fat mousse you might find in your local supermarket. Whilst I was in-store I compared it to said low-fat supermarket version, and whilst the calories and fat are much the same, the Bio-Synergy is much lower is sugar – good for those on a low carb diet. It does contain aspartame though, and so may not be to the taste of those who try and avoid artificial sweeteners. It is also made with Beef Gelatine – sorry vegetarians.
As for the Chromium, I personally felt it did as promised, although this could be partly psychological. I don’t normally get cravings for sugary foods, but I did resist a multipack of Flumps (my FAVOURITE) that was plonked on my desk all afternoon, which is unusual!
This mousse ticks all the boxes – eating chocolate (tick) being PrettyFit (tick). Another winner from Bio-Synergy!
