Makes approx. 4 portions
Prep time: 5min
Refrigerate: not necessary, but can be prepared in advance and cooled until serving time.
- 500g – Quark or Natural fromage frais
- 1/2 teesp. Dried lavender petals
- 1x juice of whole lemon
- 100ml – skimmed Milk – I used skimmed 0.3% fat.
- 2-3 knife-tips Stevia-sweet 90% powder dissolved in 1 table spoons hot water
Note: getting the sweetness to the desired level is a matter of trial and error, the best thing is to start with a smaller amount of whatever Stevia you have on hand, it can be ready-use, liquid or tabs (need to be dissolved too), adding more is easier than diluting – you could end up with a huge amount of treat -Don’t have any Stevia yet? – you can always use normal sweetener products until you are set up.
Start by squeezing the lemon juice and combining the wet ingredients together and mix until you get a smooth creamy texture, add stevia-sweet to taste and then include the lavender, take care not to add too much, or it will taste soapy.
Tip: Adding the Stevia-sweet 90% into the warmed up milk will help make sure its dissolved ok and add into dry ingredients.
Fill into serving glasses, decorate with un-waxed lemon peal or slice, serve immediately or stand cool for later.
