Love cheesecake and having problems with lactose intolerance? Then look no further – this recipe is for you! It is a simple recipe and other grape varieties can be used – but for a special dinner party then these muscat grapes do taste a little bit special and really marry with the flavour of the maple syrup used to sweeten this dish. The recipe is for occasional consumption as it is high in calories but as you will know from the other recipes on this website a small amount of the cheesecake can be consumed occasionally. Cheesecake is a wonderful flavour and dessert for a treat. Your dinner party guests will not suspect that you follow a lactose free or low fodmap diet.
2 tubs of lactose free cream cheese
50g maple syrup
1 packet of gluten free biscuits.
2 sheets of gelatine
1 pack of grapes
Crush the biscuits to a consistently sized small crumb
Melt the butter and add the biscuit crumb and mix well
Add to the bottom of a flan dish and flatten to form the base
Place the lactose free cream cheese in a dish and add the maple syrup (ensure that the maple syrup is free of added fructose syrup.)
Add the gelatin to cold water till soft
Remove and pour on some just boiled water 100ml – just enough to dissolve the gelatin.
Add the dissolved gelatin to the cream cheese mixture
Add the cream cheese mixture to the top of the biscuit base and chill
Decorate with grapes and maple syrup drizzle.
