    I'm looking for a whipped cream alternative to make a strawberry and cream cake with. I need to be able to make it thick. Any healthy suggestions, please :D

    I love quark, I have it loads in cheesecakes. Not sure about using it for this though as would need to use too much.

    I'm making a big strawberry and cream slice but going to try and make it healthily if I can.

    Thanks hadn't thought to try that.

    I did think to mix quark and fromage frais but didn't know if it would be thick enough.

    Think I will give it a go and see how I get on.

    Also does anyone know how many syns and in puff pastry?

    You could always use reduced fat creme fraiche - it's a few syns but the consistency would be right plus it's really yummy

    Just found this thank you loobieluck
    This tastes almost as good as double cream!)

    250g QUARK
    500G LOW FAT FROMAGE FRAIS
    SWEETNER TO TASTE
    VANILLA EXTRACT TO TASTE

    Mix all the above together, and whip until nice and thick, then refrigerate for a few hours. This mixture is absolutely gorgeous with mixed berries or other varieties of fruit.

    I hope you all like it

    Weight watchers do a 'thick cream' which is quite reasonable on syns if you don't need too much... I can't remember how thick it was though and if you can whip it... so only a slightly useful post from me :p

    Thick Cream, Reduced Fat, 1 level tbsp 1 syn on all plans
