  • 3 small oranges 2 juiced, 1 zested and segmented
  • 8 Digestive biscuits or low fat ones
  • 200 g cream cheese or light version
  • 50 g caster sugar


  1. Place the Digestives in a food bag and crush with a rolling pin into fine crumbs.
  2. Divide the crumbs between 4 ramekins/mini soufflé dishes.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the cream cheese, orange zest and gradually add the juice (depending on the yield of the oranges you might not need all the juice, you want a creamy consistency).
  4. Whisk in the sugar.
  5. Divide between the 4 dishes using the back of a spoon to smooth onto the biscuit base.
  6. Decorate with the orange segments.
  7. Serve immediately or chill until needed.
