Description: Super quick, low-carb dessert that eats like ice cream. Best served chilled.

This is a version of Chef Andre Bienvenue's Almond Ricotta Creme from the South Beach Diet.

I'm adding ground flax seed to add more fiber without carbs. I am also omitting the almonds since I'm adding the flax seed.

This is such an easy dessert and you get all that fiber without the carbs. It's a guilt-free treat. It only has 2-4 carbs per serving but it's actually quite satisfying.
Ingredients: 1/4 cup fat-free Ricotta (2 Carbs per 70g)
1-2 Tbsp ground flax feed
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 tsp Splenda or 1/2 - 1 tsp Stevia
How To Prepare: In a small dessert bowl, add the ricotta. Sprinkle the flax seed over ricotta.
Add almond extract.
Sprinkle sweetener over everything else.

Before eating, if desired, mix the ingredients until they are well combined.

Carbs: 4 if using Ricotta fat free cheese (70g) and 1 tsp of Splenda.


2 if using Ricotta fat free cheese(70g) and 1 tsp stevia
Number of Servings: 1
Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known: 2 carbs from ricotta, 2 carbs from Spends tsp vs 0 carbs from a stevia package. 80 calories
Preparation Time: 1 minute
Effort (Easy, Average, Difficult): Easy

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Satisfying and low in carbs

I'm not sure if I would equate it to icecream...but it is tasty and will satisfy the sweet tooth craving. If you use whole Ricotta, it will reduce the carb count by 1 carb. I love the fact that it is a 'one serving' dessert also. Definitely worth a try...especially if you are a Ricotta lover....can see where there could be a lot of variations if different extracts are used. The addition of flaxmeal is a fantastic idea.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Tasty and low carb.
Cons: Hard to find the cheese!

I ended up having to use a "creamed cottage cheese" because nobody sold fat free ricotta around here. That being said, it was only 5 grams of net carbs per serving, and was really tasty.
