This is a classic summer dessert recipe that I’ve changed around. It traditionally has a sweet pastry base that contains lots of butter and eggs, so it is very high in fat. Pastry also can be a bit of a bugger to make, so I have done a quick easy base with crushed digestive biscuits. The filling again is usually Crème Patisserie (lovely, but again, cream, eggs and flour) I’ve made a filling out of low fat cream cheese and sweetened with my favourite natural sweetener –honey!

  • 300 g Digestive biscuits

  • 100 g melted Butter

  • 500 g low fat cream cheese

  • 50 ml Double cream

  • 3 tablespoons Honey

  • 1 Vanilla pod

  • 2 punnets strawberries

  • 1 punnet blueberry

  • icing sugar for dusting


  • 1.

    Blitz biscuits until fine in mini blender.

  • 2.

    Melt the butter and mix in with the biscuits then press into a 10” tart shallow tart case, pop into the fridge and start on the filling.

  • 3.

    Whip the cream cheese with the honey and vanilla, spread into the tart case. Sometimes the consistency of cream cheese can vary, so if it seems a bit runny, leave in the fridge for a few hours to set.

  • 4.

    De-hull and halve the strawberries, then arrange beautifully over the filling, finally sprinkle with blueberries and icing sugar then serve!

looks like a great Valentines recipe that's not too naughty but not too virtuous either

You can substitute the cream cheese low fat for ricotta cheese
