This was created absolutely accidentally as I was in the mood for something sweet and decadent but didn’t want to go for something too sugary or fatty. So I found a lonely tub of Quark (low fat cheese that is very high in protein, similar to Fromage Frais) sitting in my fridge and decided to jazz it up a little bit. I was so surprised and pleased with the end result I have started suggesting this healthy snack to my patients who have the most insatiable sweet teeth ever – so far I have no complaints. I have also been known to serve this snack as a healthy dessert after a leisurely Sunday lunch. Give it a try, I am sure you will like it!
Ingredients: (2 portions)
– 1 tub of fat free Quark (250gr)
– 5 table spoons of almond milk
– 1 tea spoon of Stevia
– 2 table spoons of raw pomegranate seeds
– 1 small handful of raw raspberries
1. In a bowl mix quark with almond milk until it’s starts forming a very soft mousse.
2. Add Stevia and continue mixing thoroughly.
3. Take 2 pretty see through glasses and fill them up to 2/3 with your yoghurt mixture.
4. Add a table spoon of pomegranate seeds to each glass.
5. Add the rest of the yoghurt mixture on top of pomegranate seeds, and then top with fresh raspberries.
This healthy snack is perfect for anyone following Paleo diet or low carb diet. However, this snack can be adjusted according to the diet plan you are on. If you are on a vegan diet plan then swap natural yoghurt for either soya or coconut one. You can substitute almond milk for any other nut milk of choice or even use oat milk or rice milk if that’s your preference. And of course, you don’t need to use pomegranates in this recipe: any berries go very well with this snack, and if you want to boost protein content of the mousse then by all means add a handful of sunflower, sesame or ground flax seeds to the yoghurt mixture!
Wishing you a great health and Bon Appetite.
