ingredients

  • 60g low fat spread
  • 10 reduced fat digestive biscuits
  • 2 x 12g sachets powdered gelatine
  • 250g quark
  • 3 x 175g pots Muller Light Toffee yogurt (or any Free toffee yogurt)
  • 1 tbsp sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites*
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 level tsp cocoa powder, to decorate

method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5 and line a 20cm springform tin with non-stick baking parchment.
  2. Melt the spread in a pan over a low heat
  3. Meanwhile, put the biscuits in a sealable food bag, bash into fine crumbs with a rolling pin and tip into a bowl. Pour in the melted spread, stir well and spoon the mixture into the prepared tin to cover the base, pressing down evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes then set aside to cool.
  4. While the base is in the oven, dissolve the gelatine in 5 tablespoons of boiling water.
  5. Put the quark in a bowl and whisk until smooth, then whisk in the yogurt, sweetener, vanilla and gelatine liquid.
  6. Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until stiff peaks form and fold into the quark mixture.
  7. Spoon the quark mixture over the biscuit base and smooth the surface with a palette knife. Chill for 4 hours or until set.
  8. Release the pie from the tin and put the pie, still on its base if necessary, on a serving plate. Thinly slice the bananas and arrange neatly on top, then sprinkle with cocoa powder and slice to serve.
