We have all the seen the latest hype over companies selling Syn free spice blends. Yes they are a great way to encourage you to try new meals, but they are a very expensive way to create a meal for all of the family. Creating your own spice blends can cost just a few pennies, they can be stored in small jars, labelled and even given away as gifts to fellow Slimming World buddies.

In this article you will find recipes to create Slimming World friendly, Syn free spice blends for:

  • Cajun Spice Blend
  • Italian Spice Blend
  • Chili Spice Blend
  • Fajita Spice Blend
  • Chips And Wedges Spice Blend
  • Gourmet Burger Rub
  • Piri Piri Spice Blend
  • Greek Spice Blend
  • Jerk Spice Blend




I especially love the convenience of having pre-mixed blends on hand.  It saves a huge amount of time and hassle measuring out individual spices for each recipe.  It also encourages creative ways for spicing up Syn Free foods like chicken, pasta or vegetables. Also many of the spice blends include similar ingredients meaning you are saving even more pennies! Once you have made a bulk purchase of spices you can create an array of different spice blends. See the full shopping list at the bottom of the page.

Do you need anything fancy to create your delicious spice blends?

I have two main pieces of in-expensive equipment for creating my spice blends. 

Firstly I purchased myself a pack of 50 small airtight hinged lid containers. They are the perfect size for storing spice blends. 

Secondly I have these amazing measuring spoons… get the measurement just right. Also anyone close to me knows I am obsessed with anything Rose Gold.


The spice blends are easy to make, simply measure them into your small airtight container, close the lid and shake. Don’t forget to label each pot if you intend to make them in batch for later.
