"This holiday season it's OK! to indulge in your favorite holiday dessert. My White Chocolate and Ricotta Cheesecake uses low fat cream cheese and skips out on the crust to make this a low calorie treat that's worthy of some holiday cheer," Travis tells OK!
Holiday Bliss Low Calorie Cheesecake!
12 oz low fat cream cheese
1 1/2 cups fresh ricotta
2 tablespoons sugar
5 oz chopped white chocolate, melted
1 large egg
2 egg whites
1 tbs. pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and lightly spray a 10-inch spring form cake pan with vegetable oil. Using a mixer, beat together cream cheese, ricotta and sugar until soft. With the mixture set to low speed, beat the remaining ingredients into the mixture and mix until completely smooth. Pour the cheesecake mixture into prepared cake pan and place in oven to bake until set, 30 minutes. Once done, remove from oven and allow the cheesecake to cool completely before removing sides. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours to continue to set before serving.
Chic tip: When serving, use a round mold to cut out slices and top each with mixed berries and mint spring.
