Dark chocolate is heart-healthy and ricotta is low-fat. I posted this recipe about a year ago but since most of my current blog friends have not seen it, I am posting it again. A very easy and light recipe, especially nice for a summer dessert. Enjoy!
4 ounces semi-sweet Dark Chocolate
2 cups part-skim Ricotta Cheese
2 tablespoons Confectioners' Sugar
1. In a food processor, blend the ricotta, sugar and dark chocolate.
2. Pour into ramekins or dessert dishes. That's it, done!
3. Can be refrigerated until ready to serve, up to 2 days.
4. Top with shaved chocolate, sliced berries or whipped cream.
The French Chef, Julia Child, liked to serve Chocolate Mousse with just a dollop of whipped cream saying, "It neither needs, nor wants, much adornment." I'm with Julia!
