I’ve been trying to eat more protein and thought I’d try some Quark instead of yoghurt – as a low fat source of protein. Blending it with the maple syrup and date creates a smooth yoghurt like caramel flavoured cream. The addition of chia seeds adds some thickness to the Quark and also a little more protein. Lovely with a sliced banana and a pretty virtuous brekkie (after a weekend of complete carb loading).
Caramel Quark (serves one)
- 120g Quark
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 medjool date (or a couple of smaller ones)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
Blend the Quark, syrup and date – this takes a little longer than my usual milk blending as there isn’t much mixture and the date needs to be blended.
Put the mixture into a bowl and add the chia seeds – leave for 20 minutes or more (or overnight) to let the chia seeds thicken the mixture.
Serve with banana – or any other fruit.
