Strawberry Coulis

  • 150g halved fresh strawberries
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 lime, zested

How to make it...

  1. Crush the digestive biscuits or blitz in a food processor and mix with the melted butter. Firmly press the crushed biscuit mix evenly over the base of a flan dish. Transfer to the fridge while you prepare the filling.
  2. Beat the goats' cheese to soften. Beat in the crème fraîche a little at a time until combined.
  3. Whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Carefully fold the whipped cream into the cheese and crème fraîche mixture. Finally, mix in the icing sugar a little at a time, to taste.
  4. Evenly spoon the filling over the base and allow to set in the fridge for 2 hours.
  5. For the coulis; blend the strawberries, sugar and lime zest in a food processor until smooth. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving. (The sauce is best served cold).
  6. To serve,slice the cheesecake, drizzle with strawberry coulis and garnish with sliced strawberries to serve.

Cooks tip: For a light-textured cheesecake, be careful not to over-work the cheesecake mix once you have added the cream.
