Slimming World summer berry cream cups

Serves 6

Syns per serving: 1½

Ingredients

300g quark
300g fat free natural Greek yogurt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites
2 tbsp sweetener

For the syrup:
200g strawberries, halved, plus extra to decorate
200g raspberries, halved, plus extra to decorate
1 tbsp crème de cassis
1 tsp sweetener

Method

  1. First make the syrup. Put the strawberries, raspberries and crème de cassis into a heatproof bowl. Cover with cling film and place over a pan of gently simmering water for 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, make the cream cups. Put the quark, yogurt and vanilla extract into a bowl and stir well until smooth.
  3. Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until just stiff. Add the sweetener a little at a time while continuing to whisk. Fold the egg whites into the quark, spoon into dessert glasses and chill.
  4. Tip the berries and all their juices into a sieve over a bowl and leave to strain for 10 minutes (don’t push the berries through, as you only want the juices). Pour the juice into a pan, discarding the berries. Add the sweetener and dissolve over a medium heat, then simmer for 3-4 minutes to reduce slightly. Cool and chill.
  5. Drizzle the syrup into the cream cups and decorate with extra berries and mint leaves. Serve straight away

Tip: Pregnant women, the elderly and babies are advised not to eat raw or partially cooked eggs.
