    I just came across this recipe in a magazine and thought it sounded interesting and easily adapted to the SW plan.

    I must say first that I have not tried this - but intend to at the first opportunity!! It sounds slightly weird, and a bit too good to be true, but worth a try.

    I will give the ingredients as they appear in the magazine - obviously you would have to substitute granulated sweetener for the icing sugar, but the quantity would be up to you.

    1 x 250g tubs Quark
    50g icing sugar
    squeeze or two of lemon juice
    250g pack frozen raspberries

    Beat the Quark, sugar and lemon juice together until smooth and creamy.

    Gently stir in the frozen raspberries until they begin to break up and the mixture is streaked with pink. Taste and add more lemon juice if necessary.

    Spoon into serving dishes or glasses and serve immediately.

    serves 4

    Now, I would think (feel free to disagree!) that as the raspberries are just broken up slightly then you wouldn't have to syn them, as you would if they were pureed.

    that looks yummy!! if you put it in the freezer for a bit would it go more like ice cream? ive never used quark before so not sure whether you can freeze it or not? xx

    not sure if it can be frozen either, might need to look into that as it was yummy they was it was but imagine it would be even nicer if the quark was frozen too. id bought the quark a while ago and necer got round to using it so when i made the recipe i tried the quark on its own and really didnt like it but.... when mixed with loads of sweetner and a little of the lemon juice it totally changed the flavour of it :)

    I have to try this recipe!!

    sounds just like one of my old favourites Eton Mess (made with strawberries, a splash of alcohol, crushed meringues and fresh cream(definitely not a SW recipe)) but this sounds like a very good substitute. I reckon you could use any fresh fruit thats cut into small pieces rather than mashed.

    50g of Icing Sugar = 10 syns. I may try it and swap the icing sugar for sweetener for a syn free treat.
