Guilt-free raspberry and strawberry cheesecake

A delicious little treat without any guilt

I am really quite excited about this recipe… I think it really tastes like a proper treat, but it’s so good it practically has a halo!

The oats form the base (and if you are following Slimming World you can use these as half of your healthy extra B choice). The cheesecake mix is a lovely, satisfying texture- it just feels indulgent!

 

My Recipe

Serves: 4
Syns: 3.5 per portion
Healthy Extra: B (1/2)

Ingredients

  • 70g oats
  • 350g raspberries (frozen or fresh)
  • a handful strawberries
  • 250g Quark
  • 115g fat-free yoghurt (natural or flavoured- I used the new Danone light and free strawberry)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 25g low fat spread
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Dry toast your oats in a frying pan for a few minutes- you want them golden brown and smelling gorgeous, but not burnt.
  3. Mix up the quark, yoghurt, honey, vanilla, eggs and 150g raspberries to form a velvety mix
  4. melt the low fat spread, and stir in the oats and a pinch of salt. Divide the oat mixture between 4 ramekins (I pre-sprayed these with low calorie spray), and press down firmly into the bottom.
  5. Spoon over the cheesecake mix to fill each ramekin
  6. Bake at 180c for 40 minutes until firm. Allow to cool and pop in fridge,
  7. To make the sauce- in a small pan, heat through 200g raspberries, and add in the strawberries (roughly chopped) and sugar. Simmer gently for 10 minutes
  8. Using a hand blender or mixer, blend the fruit into a puree, and allow to cool.
  9. Serve the cheesecake with the raspberry and strawberry sauce and more fresh berries.

Additional Info

I can't wait to experiment a bit more with this recipe- maybe some chocolate in the oats... perhaps a lemon and lime version....
