Super quick dessert recipes:
Ingredients for 4 desserts:
- 300 g fresh strawberries
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 pack Ferero Raffaello (150g)
- 250g quark or cream cheese
- 250g mascarpone
- 1 packet of vanilla sugar
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 200 ml cream
This strawberry-Raffaello dessert pictured above is not only delicious, but also prepared at lightning speed. I’ll show you in a detailed step-by-step guide how the recipe works:
Step 1: Wash and clean the strawberries first. Add 2 tbsp sugar and crush with a blender or mashed stick. Then you put the puree aside.
Step 2: Set 4 Raffaellos aside, you’ll need them later for the decoration. You can also crush the remaining Raffaellos with a blender or puree stick.
Step 3: Then mix the quark, mascarpone, vanilla sugar and 3 tbsp sugar with the hand stirrer to a creamy mass, then add the crushed raffaellos.
Step 4: In the next step, the cream must be beaten and undercut.
Step 5: Now you can alternately layer the strawberry mass and the Raffaello quark mass in dessert glasses and decorate them with the raffaellos set aside.

For simple and fast desserts there are different variants. I’ll tell you my favorite recipes and tell you how to prepare them quickly and without much effort.
Simple vanilla quark with strawberries
You love the red fruits as much as I do? Here I have another strawberry dessert: the creamy vanilla quark with strawberries! Wash them, remove the green and cut the strawberries into small pieces. Mix them with 2 tbsp sugar. Then you need 2 more tbsp sugar, which you mix with 250g quark and 375g vanilla pudding powder. Spread the quark on 4 dessert glasses or a bowl and garnish with the strawberries. Zip-zap-ready!
Vegan Dessert: Chocolate mousse
Millions of people now eat vegan foods and therefore only eat plant-based foods. If you also belong or want to try the vegan trend, I can recommend this chocolate one! For this you even need only 3 ingredients: Aquafaba (the liquid in which canned chickpeas are inserted), vegan chocolate and agave syrup (or rice or maple syrup).
- Melt 120g chocolate over a water bath.
- When cooled, add 2 tbsp agave syrup.
- Then mix the aquafaba until a consistency similar to the beaten egg whites is created.
- Now you blend this Aquafaba mix into the chocolate and put it in the refrigerator to get cold for at least an hour.
- Just before serving, you can garnish your dessert.
Small tip: I like to use berries or other fruits. A great alternative for those who like it chocolatey and want to consciously do without animal products!
Super quick dessert recipes: mango and quark
Vitamin-rich, fruity and fresh. This mango dessert is just right for hot summer days! Take 100g white chocolate and heat it together with 6 tbsp milk in a saucepan. When the chocolate has melted, you can let it cool down. Cut a ripe mango into pieces and put a few aside for decoration. You puree the rest in a stand mixer. Now mix 250g of quark with the chocolate. Then add 200g of cream and lift it under. Now quark cream and mango puree can be layered alternately in dessert glasses. Garnish later with the remaining pieces of mango and some mint.
