Low Fat Blackberry Cheesecake Recipe
100g Digestive biscuits
2 tbsp low fat spread
150g Blackberries (or any other seasonal fruits)
2 tbsp sweetener
Crush the biscuits using the food processor, or by placing the biscuits into a food bag and use a rolling pin. The biscuits add a delightful crunch crispiness to the bold berry flavor.
Place the low fat spread into a saucepan and melt. Be careful not to over melt and scorch the pan. Combine the biscuit crumb to the melted spread and mix thoroughly until the two are thoroughly mixed.
Pour the biscuit mixture into a lined flan case. Place the quark, blackberries (reserving 3 for decoration) and sweetener into the food processor and whizz up for 20 seconds til blended. Pour this mixture over the crunchy biscuit base.
Decorate with the 3 blackberries, then chill for a few hours prior to serving.
You can serve with either ice cream or cream decorated over the top, but this will increase the fat content of this dish. For the berry savant, add in a variety of berries to build up a bold and sweet flavour!
