World Quark Day - #quarkupyourlife

What is Quark?

If you have ever tried some kind of healthy eating plan, or even followed any of the recipes on my website, it is likely that you would have come across Quark.

Quark is a fresh dairy product which contains 1/5 of the calories of traditional cream cheese and has more than twice the amount of protein than low fat yogurt. I always like to describe it as a 'low fat cream cheese'.

My Favourite Quark Recipes

It is such versatile and tasty ingredient that can be used for smoothies, sauces, sides, soups, spreads and for baking. I have featured it in many of my recipes, but here are some of my favourites. I like to use it in both sweet and savoury recipes, and find it makes a create alternative to anything where you would usually use cream cheese.

Lemon Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

These delicious low calorie sweet treats are amazing! Made using lemon and quark and crumbled up biscuit on top.

Creamy Mushroom Pâté

A delicious light and savoury mushroom Pâté, perfect on toast with soft poached eggs.

Salted Caramel Apple Crumble Cheesecake Bars!

These decedent crumble bars contain far less calories than you think, thanks to the use of quark!
