Ricotta Crème Desserts

After making my Home-Made Ricotta Cheese, I've been eating Ricotta Crème for desserts as part of South Beach Diet Recipes. In the the first phase, there are five ways how to enjoy Ricotta Crème - Lemon Zest Ricotta Crème, Almond Ricotta Crème, Vanilla Ricotta Crème, Mocha Ricotta Crème, and Lime Ricotta Crème. My favorite is Mocha Ricotta Crème, I love the mixture of cheese with coffee and chocolate. The basic ingredients are Ricotta Cheese, vanilla extract, and substitute sugar + the flavor (lemon/lime zest, coffee and chocolate for mocha).
Vanilla Ricotta Crème
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon sugar substiture

Lime Zest (or Lemon) Ricotta Crème
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon grated lime or lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon sugar substitute

*****

Mocha Ricotta Crème
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
(I used chocolate powder)
1 teaspoon sugar substitute
dash of expresso powder

Mix together the ricotta cheese and  the rest of the ingredients in a dessert bowl.
(If it's too thick, add 2 tablespoon water)
Served chilled.
yUm!
