There is no cooking required in this recipe so it’s perfect for a quick mid-week dessert or as an indulgent brunch.

This recipe combines sweet, creamy and crunchy for a truly delicious dessert. We have used cornflakes for our crunch but you could use something other than cornflakes in this recipe…maybe crush up an Alpen Light bar!

Whatever you use, it’s better to assemble it when you’re ready to eat so that the cereal layer doesn’t go too soggy.

We use Sukrin Icing which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to icing sugar with zero calories.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

You can grab Sukrin Icing over on Amazon UK

You can also pick up Natvia as an alternative to Sukrin

    Hi Jeanette, you don’t have to use quark if you’d prefer not to. Just using yogurt would be fine.Hope you enjoy making this recipe.
