healthy_eatingIf you’re a fan of sweet chilli sauce, you might be shocked to read these statistics.
In every tablespoon there is:

  • 62 calories
  • More than 3 teaspoons of sugar, and
  • 330mg of sodium.

So while it is a delicious accompaniment to a stir fry, burger or home made lasagne it is also not doing you too many favours if you are trying to lose weight.
So today we have a delicious home made sweet chilli sauce recipe that we think tastes great. And the best part? It only contains around 16 calories per tablespoon!
Use less chilli if you don’t like it too hot, or leave some chilli seeds in if you like it extra spicy.

  • 3 small red chillis, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 red capsicums, de-seeded and cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey (or you could use 3 fresh pitted dates)
  • Juice of one lemon (or you can use a lime)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Place all ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds on high speed.
  • Place into a glass jar and keep refrigerated for up to a week.
  • Makes around 1 cup of sauce. Calories per tbsp: 16.
