Slimming World’s Mississippi mud pie is a classic with a makeover, using skimmed milk and quark – but no one will know the difference! Plus, it takes just 30 mins to prepare. This American classic has been reinvented with guilt-free swaps, thanks to the low-fat spread, low-fat digestive biscuits, skimmed milk and quark. Finish with a light grating of chocolate. Everyone will enjoy Slimming World’s show-stopping lighter version of this much loved American chocolate dessert.

Ingredients

  • 60g low fat spread
  • 10 reduced fat digestive biscuits
  • 10 sheets of leaf gelatine
  • 200ml skimmed milk
  • 4 level tbsp cocoa powder, plus 1 tsp to dust
  • 2 tsp coffee granules
  • 250g quark
  • 3 x 175g pots Muller Light Vanilla yogurt (or any free vanilla yogurt)
  • 4 tbsp sweetener
  • 5g milk chocolate, grated, to decorate

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 190C, gas 5 and line an 18cm 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 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.

  • Meanwhile, put the gelatine sheets into a small bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soften for 5 minutes.

  • Mix the milk, cocoa powder and coffee granules in a jug and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Squeeze the excess liquid from the gelatine sheets, add the sheets to the milk and whisk until they have dissolved.

  • Leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  • Whisk the quark, yogurt, sweetener and cooled milk using a hand whisk and pour on to the biscuit base. 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. Sprinkle over the grated chocolate and extra cocoa and slice to serve.
