Pimm's Skinny Tiramisu

British summer time screams strawberries and Pimm's to me. I therefore decided to combine them to make  Pimm's skinny tiramisu.

I love tiramisu - coffee, chocolate and an indulgent cream. However, when I made one a few years back and saw the calories in mascarpone, I realised that it wasn't going to love me! My Mum told me to give Quark a try and I haven't looked back.


This recipe using sponge fingers soaked in Pimm's. This is layered with a layer of Pimm's flavoured quark and creme fraiche and topped with fresh strawberries. I have made individual pots here, but you could make it in a big dish too. It can be made the night before and will thicken in the fridge. This recipe is for 4 people.
