Total time:10 minutes + chilling

Serves: 6


165g Waitrose Love Life Pitted Medjool Dates
150g dark chocolate 70% cocoa
500g pot Lindahls Natural Quark 


1. Set aside 2 of the dates and place the remainder in a food processor. Add 50ml of water and blitz until smooth and creamy.

2. Break up the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Heat the chocolate carefully until melted, then remove from the pan and set aside to cool slightly.

3. Place the quark in a large bowl and use a handheld electric mixer to whisk for 1 minute until creamy and thickened. Add the chocolate and date purée then beat again until well blended. 

4. Divide the mixture between 6 small glasses or 150ml ramekins and chill until ready to serve. Shred the remaining dates and sprinkle over the top.

Cook’s tip

Try adding other flavours to the mixture such as grated orange zest or vanilla extract.
