- 60g low fat spread
- 10 reduced fat digestive biscuits
- 2 x 12g sachets powdered gelatine
- 250g quark
- 3 x 175g pots Muller Light Toffee yogurt (or any free toffee yogurt)
- 1 tbsp sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 egg whites*
- 2 bananas
- 2 level tsp cocoa powder, to decorate
Preheat the oven to 190C, gas 5 and line a 20cm springform tin with non-stick baking parchment.
Melt the spread in a pan over a low heat.
Meanwhile, put the biscuits in a sealable food bag, bash into fine crumbs with a rolling pin and tip into a bowl. Pour in the melted spread, stir well and spoon the mixture into the prepared tin to cover the base, pressing down evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes then set aside to cool.
While the base is in the oven, dissolve the gelatine in 5 tablespoons boiling water.
Put the quark in a bowl and whisk until smooth, then whisk in the yogurt, sweetener, vanilla and gelatine liquid.
Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until stiff peaks form and fold into the quark mixture.
Spoon the quark mixture over the biscuit base and smooth the surface with a palette knife. Chill for 4 hours or until set.
Release the pie from the tin and put the pie, still on its base if necessary, on a serving plate. Thinly slice the bananas and arrange neatly on top, then sprinkle with cocoa powder and slice to serve.
