This cheesecake is the perfect way to end a family meal, and it’s also great for entertaining. It’s a favourite for Ian, who loves to cook everything from scratch.

Ingredients

Dark Chocolate

50 g, grated

Low fat digestive biscuit(s)

100 g, crushed

Low Fat Spread

25 g, melted

Fine Leaf Gelatine

4 sheet(s), cut into pieces

Low Fat Soft Cheese

300 g

Quark

250 g

Skimmed Milk

75 ml

Vanilla Extract

2 teaspoons, level

Artificial sweetener

2 tablespoons

Icing Sugar

25 g

Lime Juice, Fresh

60 ml

Lime(s)

2 zest(s) of 1

Instructions

  1. Line the base of an 18cm loose-bottomed cake tin with baking paper. Set aside a pinch of the grated chocolate and blitz the rest with the biscuits in a food processor to form fine crumbs. Stir in the melted spread, then spoon into the base of the prepared tin. Press down firmly, then chill.
  2. Meanwhile, put the gelatine in a heatproof bowl with 4 tablespoons of water and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (being careful it does not touch the water in the pan) and heat until the gelatine is dissolved.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the remaining ingredients, including the green food colouring, if using, until smooth and combined, then pour in the gelatine mixture and stir well. Pour the mixture over the chilled base.
  4. Chill for at leas 4 hours, or overnight,until set. Decorate with the reserved grated chocolate and extra lime zest, then serve.
