    I have been trying lots of variations to try and create the lowest syn cheesecake possible for a summer dessert and have come up with this.

    Low Syn Lemon & Lime Cheescake

    2 packs of alpen lights
    2 tubs of quark
    2 sachets of hartleys lemon & lime sugar free jelly (1 1/2 syns per sachet)
    zest & juice of 2 lemons
    Sweetener to taste

    Serves 6 (1/2 a syn & HE B per serving)

    Using a 20 cm loose bottom springform cake tin. I started by microwaving the alpen lights 2 at a time for 20 seconds and pressing down in the base of the cake tin to form a base. I used the apple & sultana variety.

    Mix the jelly sachets with 1/2 pint of boiling water and stir well, leave to cool slightly.
    Mix the quark, lemon zest and juice and sweetener ( i used about 4 tbsps). Combine with the jelly mixture and mix well. Pour over the base and chill.

    I cut into 6 generous servings and as long as you use the Alpen lights as a HE B then it only works out as 1/2 a syn per slice.

    Next week i will try a chocolate orange one using orange jelly and orange zest and juice and double chocolate alpens for the base.

    Sounds divine- I wish I could eat the alpen bars - but they disagree with me so much- sob.

    Just a thought. If you want to reduce your SYNS further. You can make jelly using sugar free squash and gelatine. I have made orange jelly this way when trying to create low SYN Jaffa cakes

    Thanks bought some gelatine yesterday so may give that a go. I am sure that the base could also be made with cereal or maybe scan bran just need to experiment a bit more.

    When I do this, I use the weightwatchers lemon and lime & lemon yogs, quark, NAS Lime squash & gelatine. Turns out fab and really refreshing! :)

    Can you estimate how much this would cost to make please?:)

    Last time I bought those bars they were about £1.29 a pack I think?

    YES!! :D Thank you soooo much for this. I did a lemon cheesecake today using ginger nuts. The syns are hefty and I now have half a cheesecake sat on the side screaming to be eaten. :cry:

    I had wondered about the Alpen bars but didn't want to spend the money on a possible disaster. I will try them this week :)
