Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
75 grams St Ivel Gold Light; (3oz)
175 grams Reduced-fat digestive biscuits; crushed (6oz)
5 millilitres Ground mixed spice; (1tsp)
15 millilitres Powdered gelatine; (1tbsp)
225 grams Cottage cheese; sieved (8oz)
\N \N Finely grated rind & juice of 2 limes
150 millilitres Reduced-fat double cream; (0.25pt)
115 grams Caster sugar; (4oz)
2 \N Eggs; size 3, separated
30 millilitres Plain fromage frais; (2tbsp)
115 grams Fresh raspberries; (4oz)
\N \N A few sprigs of fresh redcurrants
\N \N Mint leaves; to decorate

Place the St Ivel Gold Light in a saucepan and heat gently until melted.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the crushed biscuits and spice and mix well. Press into the base of a 20cm (8in) loose-bottomed cake tin.

Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Sprinkle the gelatine over 45ml (3tbsp) water in a bowl and leave to soak for a few minutes.

Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir until the gelatine has dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Place the sieved cottage cheese, lime rind and juice, cream, sugar and egg yolks in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and throughly mixed. Add the cooled gelatine and blend until well mixed.

Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold carefully into the lime mixture. Pour over the biscuit base and level the surface.

Chill in the refrigerator for several hours until firm and set.

Carefully remove the cheesecake from the tin and place it on a serving plate.

Swirl the fromage frais over the surface of the cheesecake and decorate with fresh raspberries, redcurrants and mint leaves before serving.


Use the finely grated rind and juice of 2 lemons or 1 lemon and 1 lime in place of the 2 limes.

Omit the mixed spice from the biscuit base, if perferred.

Use other reduced-fat biscuits such as ginger biscuits, in place of the digestive biscuits.
