This makes a simple and healthy snack, and it’s also quite filling. I find it particularly nice if I’m craving pudding. It’s my favorite snack to have at night, after the kids have gone to bed.
Lightly sweetened ricotta
(net carbs: varies based on brand of ricotta you use)
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 Tbsp sugar-free syrup (I generally use vanilla or caramel)
Simply mix together and eat! It’s that fast and simple. (Which is probably why I like it at night, when I’m tired and don’t feel like making anything that requires even a smidgen of effort.) I also like to top it with a few chopped nuts (especially toasted pecans) to add a little crunch.
I often wonder if freezing it might result in something akin to ice cream. If I ever give it a try, I’ll post my results. And if YOU try it, please post a comment and tell me how it was!
