    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 1 sachet low fat strawberry jelly
    • 1/2 litre ice cream, vanilla or strawberry
    • 1 small packet digestive biscuits, crushed
    • 2 knobs butter, melted
    • 2 handfuls chopped fresh strawberries (optional)
    • 1 tub extra light cream cheese

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr15min 

    1. Crush digestives in a food processor or by hand using a rolling pin and a food bag.
    2. Melt butter and pour into crushed biscuits. Scoop mixture into a tin lined with greaseproof paper, and press down with the back of a spoon to flatten. Leave to cool.
    3. Melt the jelly, 10-15 seconds in the microwave.
    4. Mix cream cheese, ice cream and melted jelly together in a bowl or food processor.
    5. Add a handful of fresh fruit to the mixture, only pulsing it so when you slice the cake you can still see the small pieces of fruit.
    6. Pour the jelly and ice cream mixture onto the biscuit base cover and stand in the fridge until the top of the cheesecake is firm to touch, usually an hour or two. Decorate with strawberries.

    Substitution

    use the same recipe for, lemon or orange or raspberry cheescake, just adding that particular flavoured jelly and fresh fruit, and vanilla ice cream. for example on saint patricks day, use lime green jelly
