Sweet Freedom

Sweet Freedom have invented a revolutionary range of products that allow you to enjoy the sweetness of sugar without suffering the complex consequence of guilt or bad side effects on your health. Because all of the products are made 100% from fruit you feel like you’re indulging in a sweet treat but won’t feel that sluggishness afterwards which processed sugar normally gives you.

The syrups can be used in so many ways such as in baking, milkshakes, hot chocolates, on toast, porridge, ice cream and drizzled on fruit. Sweet Freedom have produced not only fruit syrups, that are a healthier version of honey or maple syrup, but also a heavenly chocolate range! The syrups are only 13 calories per teaspoon and the Choc Shot range are 14 calories per teaspoon. Read on for more information  if you’re curious what these products actually taste like!

Nutrition: 100% from fruit, suitable for diabetics, gluten free, GM free, vegan, dairy free.


Choc Shot – It does have that sweet chocolate taste that you want, but because it is made from fruit it has a slightly fruity, fresher taste to it that normal chocolate doesn’t have, no bad thing. Although it definitely satisfies a sweet craving it isn’t creamy or rich like some chocolate.

(Ingredients: natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob, water, cocoa, rapeseed oil, natural chocolate flavour.)

Coconut Choc Shot – This one is richer than the original Choc Shot and has the added unmistakable, exotic taste and fragrance of coconut that streams through strongly, it’s not just a hint. It’s indulgent and tastes more like dark chocolate, with a slightly thicker consistency.

(Ingredients: natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob, water, cocoa, rapeseed oil, natural flavours; coconut & chocolate.)

Orange Spice Choc Shot – Christmas is coming up and this is the perfect wintery treat. Just the smell of it oozes that cosy Christmas spice aroma that we all love. Luckily the orange is again a strong flavour, it’s very sweet and could almost be mistaken for a melted Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

(Ingredients: natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob, water, cocoa, rapeseed oil, natural flavours; chocolate, orange & cardamom.)

Fruit Syrup – With a slightly freer flowing consistency than honey but a similar taste, this light, refreshing syrup is a godsend! Honey is another form of unhealthy processed sugar and as this fruit syrup tastes just like honey, it’s a perfect alternative. Even if you’re not much into honey, treacles or syrups, you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised and a willing convert after trying this out.

(Ingredients: Syrup made from natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob.)

Dark Fruit Syrup – What’s the difference between these fruit syrups, you ask? The dark one is richer and tastes similar to maple syrup, because of that signature deepness of flavour. It has a fruitier undertone than maple syrup though and is actually tastier.

(Ingredients: Syrup made from natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob.)

Value: The Fruit Syrups are £2.99 and the Choc Shots are around £3.50, depending on where you buy them. They’re pretty exceptional value as the bottles contain over 300g of  which, depending on the sweet tooths in your household, can last for months!

Summary: These products are absolutely amazing as an alternative to processed sugar. They’re so sweet you wouldn’t know the difference and you so you feel like you’re really treating yourself! I am totally in love with them and will use them instead of other sugary syrups and honey to help me stay on track with my fitness regime whenever I get cravings for something sweet.
