Lemon Zest Ricotta Crème


30 MINUTES OR LESS Other flavors can be added to the basic ricotta cheese and sugar substitute mix. For example, you might consider using 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and 1 teaspoon slivered toasted almonds, or for a mocha treat, 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, a dash of espresso powder and 5 mini chocolate chips. Because part-skim ricotta cheese has such a mild taste, it lends itself as a backdrop to these flavorings.

  • 1/4 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
