Cloudberry Quark

Quark is something I always eat by the bucket full when I get back to Finland. It is as delicious on its own as it is used in desserts or savoury pies. It's a very versatile ingredient and also low in fat, but high in protein. Paired with cloudberries it makes the perfect dessert I can think of!

I've used shop-bought whippable vanilla sauce in this, but you could of course use normal (or soy) whipping cream. You could try making the vanilla custard using this recipe. It won't whip to as light and fluffy consistency, but it will mix well with quark. And cloudberries you can replace with blackberries or raspberries, if you can't find these golden gems.

Cloudberry Quark

200ml whippable vanilla custard
250g quark (fat-free)
200g cloudberries

Whip the vanilla sauce until light and fluffy. Add in the quark and mix until smooth. Fold in the berries and enjoy!
