Diet prosecco is now a thing. Yes, you read that right – everyone’s favourite tipple now comes in an even more drinkable version (because if it’s diet then you’re allowed twice as much, obviously).
Winemakers Thomson & Scott have transformed this sparkling drink into a ‘skinny’ version by halving the sugar and limiting the calories to just 67 calories. This new brand of prosecco costs just £17.99 and contains only 7g of sugar per litre, which is about half of what your usual choice includes, according to the makers.
And, you’ll be pleased to know, that’s not where its health benefits end either. This slimmed down beverage is 100% organic and contains less calories per glass than eating a banana – we know which we would choose.
Already available in the food halls at Harvey Nichols and Selfridges the Skinny Prosecco is just about to become a whole lot more readily available. Zizi’s, the high street Italian restaurant chain, has introduced it to their menus in a bid to appeal to a health conscious diner (but one who equally doesn’t want to give up the fun of bubbles).
Amanda Thomson, CEO of Thomson & Scott, told the Daily Mail: ‘Our common commitment to transparency in food and drink makes us a natural fit for the Millennial customers who want less sugar in their lives but don’t want to compromise on taste.
‘It’s great to see another brand providing choices for what to drink as well as what to eat.’
For something a little more special there’s also a no-sugar Skinny Champage. It’s made from the finest grapes in the heart of the Champagne region, aged for six years and, Amanda says, it’s not hiding any imperfections by adding any sugar.
If you’re not in London and don’t have a Zizi’s restaurant close by then not all is lost. You can purchase Skinny Prosecco online at thomsonandscott.com
