This delightful cheesecake is creamy and not thick, with a hint of lemon and vanilla. For best results, do not substitute any ingredients with low-fat unless you've made it before and want to experiment.

This cheesecake uses low-fat cottage cheese instead of cream cheese and so isn't as high as fat as a regular cheesecake.

This is a very simple recipe that produces a restaurant quality cheesecake. It won't be as 'grainy' as a typical ricotta cheesecake because of the addition of cream cheese and sour cream.

There are so many cheesecake recipes but this ricotta version is definitely my favourite. It is simple and easy to make on a biscuit crumb base.

This dessert has the creamy consistency a cheesecake should have but uses ricotta cheese. Add an amaretti biscuit base without butter and vitamin C-rich strawberries and kiwi fruit for a healthy result that's big on flavour.

A delicious baked cheesecake made with fresh or frozen berries and ricotta to keep it light. It's baked in a water bath to get its special texture.

This is an authentic version of an ancient Roman cheesecake known as a 'Savillum'. It is extremely different to the modern versions so be prepared.

The great combination of these ingredients creates a perfect cheesecake. The ricotta cheese gives an amazing creamy texture, while the touch of orange gives a lovely citrus flavour. Plus, it is as easy as it gets - put everything in the food processor and that's it!
