Ingredients
 

  • 1/2 oz oats
  • 1/4 oz sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried mixed berries
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

for the filling

  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 gelatine leaves soaked in cold water
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 9 oz cottage cheese
  • 3 1/2 oz 0% fat fromage frais
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

for the topping

  • 7 oz frozen mixed summer fruits
  • 1 tsp arrowroot blended with a little cold water

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.
  • To make the bases, put all the ingredients into a food processor and process to a paste. Spread out on a non-stick baking tray and bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Remove, chop into 5 mm (1/4 inch) chunks, then return to the oven for a further 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool, then process again. The mixture becomes crisp when cold.
  • Divide the mixture between 4 mini gateaux rings or ramekins, pressing it into the bases.
  • To make the filling, put the water, gelatine leaves and honey into a small saucepan over a low heat and heat until the gelatine has dissolved.
  • Put the cottage cheese, fromage frais, lemon zest and vanilla extract into a food processor and process for about 4 - 5 minutes, or until the mixture is really smooth and the zest has almost disappeared. Pour in the gelatine mixture - ensure that the cheese mixture is at room temperature before adding the gelatine, otherwise it will not set correctly.
  • Pour the filling over the top of the bases and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until set.
  • To make the topping, put the frozen fruit into a small saucepan over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Gradually stir in the arrowroot mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Leave to cool.
  • Add the topping to the cheesecakes. Using a small knife, carefully cut around the edge of each gateaux ring and tap out onto serving plates, or, if using ramekins, serve in the dishes.
