Chocolate Cheese Pots with Apple Slices
I've been making a real effort to cook a little lighter this year, so found this from my Cook's Library - Low Fat Cookbook. I had some leftover ricotta cheese so decided to give it a whirl.
I ended up using chocolate syrup instead of chocolate powder and adding more powdered sugar than they called for (it was a little too tangy) so it probably ended up higher in calories than originally anticipated, but still very healthy and still very tasty!
My measurements reflect what I added to make it sweeter.
1 1/4 cups ricotta cheese
2/3 cup low fat plain yogurt
4 tbsp confectioner's sugar
4 tsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp dark rum
2 egg whites
fresh fruit for serving
- Mix the cheese and yogurt in a bowl, with the confectioner's sugar, both chocolates, vanilla extract and rum.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture
- Pour them into your serving bowls and let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes * - I actually put them in the freezer for 15 minutes and they were great that way!
- Serve with fruit slices.
