low cal quark cheesecake?

is it possible to make a low fat cheesecake using quark? i'm currently cutting and would love a slice. could i maybe make the base with low fat digestives and add fructose instead of sugar? i have no idea on measurements though

    I was thinking the exact same thing and I dont see why not. Probably the most fattening bit will be the base, as if I remember right you have to use melted butter to bind the biscuit crumbs together? Maybe something I will give a try at the weekend :D

    Yes you can.

    Make the base with digestiveas as you say.
    The problem is that you need sugar and lots of fat for a base.
    You can use a bit of fructose in it, and go for a not very sweet base (after all, digestives have sugar anyway) and use some kind of low fat spread.

    For the cheesecake bit, mix 3 tubs of quark with a sachet of sugar free lemon jelly. Blend it up, put it on the base and whack it in the fridge.
    Add some kind of fruit topping if you want.

    Try my recipe:



    Low Fat Cheesecake


    Filling: 750gr quark, 1tsp vanilla essence, 2 egg yolks, 3 egg whites, 2 tbsp corn flour, 100gr fructose, berries (blueberry, raspberry, strawberry...)

    Almonds crust: 100gr sliced almonds, 100gr ground almonds, 2tbsp Splenda, 2tbsp unsalted butter. 1 egg white

    To make the crust, combine almonds & Splenda, add butter & mix with fingertips. Beat the egg white until foamy & add to the almond mixture. Mix well to combine. Press firmly to mold over the bottom & up the side of a springform tin. Bake for 10min @180C.

    To make the filling, mix qwark with vanilla, fructose, egg yolks, corn flour until well combined. Beat the egg white till soft peak & add to the qwark mix.

    Pour 1/2 filling over the crust, then a layer of berries, then the other 1/2 of the filling. Bake @180C for 45-50min(if the top of the cheesecake darkens too quickly, cover with a tin foil until the end of cooking time). Let it cool down then put it in the fridge for 2 hours... Serve with some extra berries.
