As you all know, I bloomin' love Slimming World, for loads of reasons but mainly because I can eat cheesecake and still loose weight, incredible. Last week a very lovely parcel arrived from SW HQ and it included their new recipe book, Sweet Dreams. As someone who loves a sweet treat, this book is absolutely perfect, it includes 60 low syn desserts perfect for any occasion, such as Friday movie night. So if you fancy making these for yourself, here's how:

For a 5 syn jar, you will need:
  • 1 level tbsp low-fat spread
  • 3 reduced-fat digestive biscuits
  • 3½ level tbsp sweetener granules
  • 100g extra-light soft cheese
  • 300g plain quark
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 200g blueberries
  • 1 level tsp arrowroot
  • Small Kilner Jars

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. Loosely spoon the mixture into 4 x 200ml jars of some sort (small Kilner jars are ideal but any fancy jam jars will do).

Beat the soft cheese, quark, lemon zest, 2 tbsp lemon juice and 2 level tbsp sweetener together in a bowl until smooth. Spoon this mixture on top of the biscuit crumbs.

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. 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.

Spoon the cooled blueberries on top of the cheesecake mixture and decorate with the remaining blueberries to serve.

As you can see I made one of the cheesecakes a strawberry one as James ins't a massive blueberry fan, I did just the same method and it worked perfectly so you can certainly mix up your fruit for your preference. I'm so pleased with how well these turned out and they really were delicious! Next pudding to try is the Chocolate Yogurt Mousses...
