Who doesn’t love a cheesecake? It’s one of my favourite desserts and these blueberry and lemon cheesecake jars are delicious. Even KayCee likes them and she’s not usually a fan of anything containing Quark!

Blueberry and lemon cheesecakes

Serves 4
5 syns per serving

Ingredients

  • 1 level tbsp low-fat spread
  • 3 reduced-fat digestive biscuits
  • 3½ level tbsp sweetener
  • 100g extra-light soft cheese
  • 300g plain quark
  • Juice and finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 200g blueberries
  • 1 level tsp arrowroot

Method

  1. Melt the spread in a small saucepan over a low heat. Crush the biscuits in a sealable food bag and stir them into the melted spread with ½ level tbsp sweetener. Spoon the mixture equally between 4 x 200ml jars (small Kilner jars are ideal but any fancy jam jars will do).
  2. Beat the soft cheese, quark, lemon zest, 2 tbsp lemon juice and 2 level tbsp sweetener together in a bowl until smooth. Divide this mixture between the jars, spooning on top of the biscuit crumbs.
  3. Put the rest of the lemon juice into a small saucepan with 150g blueberries and the remaining sweetener. Bring to a gentle simmer over a low heat and cook for 2 minutes, or until the berries have just burst.
  4. Mix the arrowroot with 1 tsp cold water, stir it into the blueberries and simmer for a few seconds until thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  5. Divide the cooled blueberries between the cheesecakes and decorate with the remaining blueberries to serve.
