When trying to eat low FODMAP, I find one of the hardest meals to replace is dessert, as let’s face it – dairy products are just so good! I have however found a way that we can enjoy our desserts once again! Lactojoy is a lactase supplement which enables those of us with IBS or food intolerances to enjoy lactose without the discomfort that usually follows afterwards. I have tried these tablets on a number of occasions and I’ve found I’m able to enjoy dairy again, without the worry I’m going to be suffering for it!
Lactojoy is made from natural ingredients; lactase enzyme, potato starch and a plant-based release agent. The supplements are therefore vegan, gluten free, fructose free, histamine free and of course lactose free. As you cannot take too much lactase, they contain a high dose to ensure you can enjoy a dessert. That’s why I’ve decided to share a recipe for an Eton Mess Cheesecake now that I can enjoy a slice without the tummy issues!
My Eton Mess Cheesecake is gluten free and incredibly tasty. Perfect for a summer dessert in the garden. To enjoy a slice. take a Lactojoy tablet before eating to avoid any unwanted IBS symptoms. On three occasions I was able to enjoy a slice of cheesecake without suffering with my guts. Living the DREAM! To make your own. scroll down for the recipe below.
Eton Mess Cheesecake
- 160 g Gluten free digestives
- 80 g Butter
- 300 g Quark (or cream cheese)
- 300 ml Double cream
- 80 g Icing sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 100 g Fresh strawberries
- 3 Egg whites (medium)
- 150 g Caster sugar
- Fresh strawberries
- Crumble the digestive biscuits (or blitz them in a food processor) until they form small crumbs.
- In a saucepan, melt the butter then remove from the heat and stir in the crumbled digestive biscuits.
- Press this mixture into a 20cm tin (I use one with a removable base) until it covers the base.
- In a bowl, mix together the quark, icing sugar and vanilla extract.
- Lightly whip the double cream and mix into the quark mixture.
- Add finely chopped strawberries and gently stir into the mixture.
- Spoon onto the biscuit base and smooth with a spatula. Place in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- To make the meringue kisses, whip the 3 egg whites until they form a foam-like consistency.
- Add the caster sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
- Using a piping bag, cut a small hole then pipe onto baking paper. To create the shape squeeze gently then pull up and away to create the swirl. Bake at gas mark 2 or 150 degrees, Once they've cooked, leave them in the oven to ensure they aren't sticky.
- To decorate your cheesecake, use fresh strawberries and meringue kisses in a pattern, then crumble on e of the meringues for the Eton 'Mess' effect! Then take your Lactojoy, cut a slice and enjoy.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and other dairy recipes too with Lactojoy. Let me know if you give it a try.
