Ricotta is a great alternative to cream cheese when making cheesecake. Ricotta creates a healthier cake but still with a great taste.
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 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.
