A little bit of what you fancy. Healthy Berry Cheesecake

A little bit of what you fancy really does you good.

At The Body Retreat we encourage our ladies to ditch the diets and instead adopt the 80/20 principle.  80% of the time you choose to eat healthy real foods, foods that nourish and support your body and mind, and then 20% of the time you are free to enjoy treats. In fact we insist upon it, because if you try for total abstinence then you are setting yourself up for failure and misery.

And anyway, life is to be enjoyed not endured.

If you are looking to enjoy the occasional treat while still lose weight there are ways of enjoying your favourite teats while at the same time making sure they are giving you that nutritional nourishment that is so important. This cheesecake recipe is low in fat, high in protein, has no added sugar using agave syrup instead which  doesn’t give the same blood sugar spikes.  It takes only minutes to prepare and really tastes fantastic… you may never want full fat cheescake ever again 🙂

Serves 6
  • 4  Oat biscuits
  • 1 ginger oatcake
  • 250g  quark
  • 50g light cream cheese
  • 1- 2 tsp agave syrup
  • 1 drop vanilla extract or ½ vanilla pod
  • 100g strawberries or blueberries



Put the oatcake into a sandwich bag and crush into smooth crumbs.

Spoon the biscuit crumbs into the bases of 6 glasses, i use large shot glasses for mine, pressing them down. Beat the quark and cream cheese and stir in 1 tsp of the agave syrup and the vanilla extract.  Add the strawberries, squashing them into the mixture.

Carefully spoon the mixture on top of the biscuit crumb bases and then smooth flat. Chill until ready to eat. Decorate with a few extra chopped berries.
