For a cheesecake that the whole family will love, follow the recipe and instructions below:


  • 150g of your favourite gluten free biscuits, crushed
  • 40g low-fat spread, melted
  • 5g sachet of sugar free lemon & lime jelly granules
  • 250ml boiling water
  • 300g any no-added-sugar, fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g plain quark
  • 400g Hazelnut Spread
  • 20g dark chocolate, shaved or grated
  • 2 level tsp cocoa powder, to decorate


  1. Place the crushed biscuits in a bowl, pour over the melted spread and mix well. Spoon into an 18cm diameter flan or cake tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Cover with cling film and chill the base for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, put the jelly crystals in a measuring jug, add 250ml boiling water and stir until dissolved. Leave to cool completely.
  3. Put the cooled jelly in a food processor with the Hazelnut Spread, yogurt, vanilla extract and quark. Whizz until smooth, then pour over the biscuit base. Cover and chill overnight, or until set.
  4. When ready to serve, decorate the cheese cake with a dusting of cocoa powder and then use a vegetable peeler to shave the Dark chocolate or just grate it on top of the cheese cake.
  5. Loosen the edges of the cheesecake using a hot palette knife and transfer to a serving plate. Cut into 8 to serve.
