I've got some friends coming over tomorrow and I am watching my weight and so is one of my friends. I figured I would make a pavlova for pudding and thought that instead of the Double cream on the top I would use Low Fat Fromage Frais. The question is firstly will this be OK and secondly should I do anything to the Fromage Frais (whip it, add a bit of sugar etc)?
maybe it was creme fraiche I meant in the first place, that is ringing a bell!
ooogs, thinking of going with your suggestion as I have quark in the fridge anyway (doing SW so have about four tubs of it ), I don't have any sugar substitute and TBH I'm not keen on using it but assume I could either up the honey or use honey and a little sugar, still wouldn't be too bad syns wise?
Demented Quark would be fine. You don't normally sweeten the cream in a pavlova - so I probably wouldn't do much more than give it a really good beating and perhaps sift a couple of teaspoons of icing sugar into it.
It may be just a bit too thick, if so let it down with a bit of milk.
I went for the Quark suggestion. I though it was quite good, although still a little cheesy, DH thought it tasted strange. Perhaps I should have put more sugar in it. Could definately see it's potential in a low fat cheesecake, one to work on.
demented: I know you've had your friends over, but I wanted to add that I've recently bought an Easiyo yoghurt maker and make various different flavours, they do a Greek style yoghurt, which i havent tried yet (but is next on my list). here's a link to this whcih you may find useful.
