We all love a berry cheesecake don’t we so this guest post from the lovely Kelly is perfect to fill that gap! Just looking at the picture of this deconstructed cheesecake is making my mouth water!
In recipes that need quark there are a few simple things you can do to ensure it tastes good. Quark doesn’t have much flavour so ensure you flavour the dish well. In this berry cheesecake, the Options white chocolate is perfect for adding taste.
Flavoured quark is usually synned if you follow Slimming World so instead use flavourings that are syn free or a squeeze of lemon juice perhaps.
Quark is available in most large supermarkets now and even stocked in Aldi and Lidl. You can usually find it near the soft cheeses in a tub similar to that you would buy cottage cheese in.
Due to the low fat content of quark it easily splits if heated too much or has hot water or hot liquid added to it. Be careful and stir in gradually and you should be ok.

Fruits such as bananas, mango and pineapple may be syn free but are not classed as speed fruits. This because they are more calorie-dense.
If you can choose speed fruits on Slimming World instead of free fruits or free foods such as fat-free fromage frais it is advisable.
If you cook, puree or blend fruit it then has syns on Slimming World. This is because you are more likely to consume more.
Comfort eating this cheesecake
It is easy when you are trying to lose weight to fall into the trap of comfort eating when you are feeling down. Finding low syn or syn free snack alternatives can help you avoid weight gain.
You do not need to just snack on fruit and vegetables to be healthy, there are so many other alternatives. This frozen berry cheesecake is good as it is comfort food but not too unhealthy either. Of course, you can also use fresh berries if you’d prefer.
If you find that you are regularly feeling down and snacking then maybe you need to address this as possible depression and consider seeing your GP. We all have struggles every now and then so it really isn’t something to be ashamed of.
Another option instead of eating at all could be to find something else to do instead of eating when you are feeling down. Give it some thought and see if you can come up with any strategies to help yourself.
