    I don't I find 1/2 tub quark and 1 satchet is just right.

    Quark makes me want to vom but 1/2 small tub VLF fromage frais mixed with white choc options is AMAZING and great over strawbs & raspberries! Tastes a bit like cheesecake filling. Just make sure you leave it in the fridge for an hour or two before serving so the options dissolves!

    confused! Ex SW, ex CC, now on FAST 5:2
    I had quark with Options orange (and a spoon of sweetener) last night and I loved it! I can see how marmalade would be nice in there too.
    This thread has got me thinking about trying the nutella or White Options in there too......Yummy! Thanks all! xx

    Don't keep it a secret....SHARE!! I saw a cake being made on Something for the Weekend a couple of weeks ago that used potato and that was apparently very good. I guess the principle of flaked potato will be the same??
