2 Great Light Desserts with Ricotta


I had some ricotta to use and I tried 2 wonderful recipes.  If you like ricotta like I do, you really have to try that.

This one is with lemon zest and tastes really good.

Lemon Zest Ricotta
From Food.com
1 serving

  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon clear vanilla extract (I used dark vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
  • 1 packet artificial sweetener
  1. Put all of the ingredients in an electric blender or food processor; cover, whirr until smooth.


If you want a snack or dessert, this one is also so easy to do.  And you can do just a few or more.  It’s really easy.  No need to measure ingredients.

Quick Or Instant “Cheesecake”
From Food.com
4 serving

  • 4 whole wheat honey graham crackers
  • 4 tablespoons part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 8 teaspoons jam (I used reduced-sugar strawberry jam)
  1. Spread each graham cracker with 1 tablespoon part-skim ricotta cheese and 2 teaspoons jam.


Question for you 🙂  Do you like ricotta?  My boyfriend doesn’t like the taste and texture of it.  Both desserts I posted, he didn’t like.

What recipes you like that use ricotta?  I’m curious 🙂
