Raspberry Vanilla Cream

By

Updated March 02, 2008

It's not cold enough to be ice cream, but it's a similar consistency as soft-serve ice cream. It's deluxe with a sprinkling of macadamia nuts. Good for breakfast, too!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raspberries, frozen without sugar
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese (whole milk type has fewest carbs and least grainy)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup sugar free raspberry syrup (such as Da Vinci) or raspberry flavoring plus sweetener
  • Artificial sweetener equal to 1/2 cup sugar, or to taste

Preparation:

Put raspberries and liquid in food processor or blender, and process until mostly smooth. Add ricotta and process until blended. Refrigerate covered.

Nutritional Information: Each half cup serving has 4 grams effective carbohydrate plus 2 grams fiber, 8 grams protein, and 146 calories.
