    fromage frais and options (which range from 1.5 syns to 3 syns) is wonderful.

    You could just make the mousse, dont have to have it with the fruit.

    Hi
    I have used 1 x 500ml fromage frais, 2 portions of Cadbury's Options and sweetener to taste. Popped into icecream maker until frozon. Split into 4 tubs & kept in freezer until needed. Take out of freezer 15 mins before you want it. 1.5 syns per portion. Yummy.

    The fromage frais i use doesnt taste sour - Tescos Light choices one. I agree Quark on its own does have a sour taste to it. But the white options sachet and sweetner added takes the sourness away. But i guess i have learnt to like a lot of things.

    Tried that but I could still taste it! Made a cheesecake with the Tesco Normandy from frais and options white choc and sweetener, but not to my liking! However, if the pud is with a fruity base like jelly or fresh fruit, no prob, just the choc and sour combination I dont like. Oh well, thank you for bothering to reply
