Top Tip!

A sweet low protein cheesecake that consists of two layers – a crunchy base and a smooth, creamy top layer. Serve with permitted fruit and ProZero® cream for an exchange free low protein dessert. Great for those on a PKU diet.


For the cheesecake filling:

  • 600ml ProZero
  • 190g Unsalted butter
  • 90g Cornflour
  • 130g Caster sugar
  • 60ml Fresh lemon juice

For the base:

  • 225g Fate Low Protein All-Purpose Mix (plus extra for dusting)
  • 75g Light soft brown sugar
  • 150g Block margarine


  1. Place the ProZero, butter and cornflour into a saucepan.
  2. Place over gentle heat and stir well with a whisk or spoon until the mixture begins to simmer and thicken.
  3. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
  4. Pour into a tall plastic container and using an electric hand-held blender, blend for 30-40 seconds.
  5. Leave to cool, cover and place in the fridge to chill for at least 3-4 hours until firmly set.
  6. Once set, preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C /Gas mark 6.
  7. Place the Fate Low Protein All-Purpose Mix into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar.
  8. Rub in the margarine with fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Then knead into a dough.
  9. Dust the work surface with Fate Low Protein All-Purpose Mix and continue to knead the biscuit dough until smooth.
  10. Roll out dough into a 24cm circle. Place dough into the tin and prick the surface lightly with a fork.
  11. Bake for 25 minutes until firm and golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and leave it to cool in the tin.
  13. Meanwhile, using an electric hand-held blender, whisk the cheesecake filling for about 2 minutes until light and airy.
  14. Add sugar and lemon juice and whisk for a further 2 minutes.
  15. Place on top of the biscuit base in the cake tin and use a spoon to level the surface.
  16. Place in the fridge for 3-4 hours, preferably overnight.
