Nutritional values

100 percent of our daily requirement of vitamin C is contained in one portion of this fresh strawberry dessert. It supports the enzymes needed for detoxification and breakdown work in the liver and inactivates the radicals that are produced. It also binds toxic metals such as lead and facilitates their excretion. It also contains important minerals such as magnesium and potassium.

The dumplings are suitable as a dessert after a light summer salad or steamed fish. For three persons they make a satisfying sweet main course. To make the strawberry quark dumplings look a little healthier, you should leave out the refined sugar. To do this, simply do without the sugar cubes in the filling and add 1 tablespoon of coconut blossom sugar to the quark mixture.
