Ginger Plum Ricotta Pie
RicottaPie3It’s stone fruit season! For this recipe I decided to use up a few plums I had. I feel like plums are the most under-rated stone fruit. Peaches and cherries get all the glory (though I love those too! Recipes to come.)

If you don’t know what ricotta pie is, it’s kind of like an Italian cheesecake. This is a lightened up version using part skim ricotta and cottage cheese. Not a cottage cheese fan? No need to worry, it gets blended up to a smooth and creamy consistency before its baked and topped with sweet juicy plums and spicy ginger.

Ginger Plum Ricotta Pie
Serves: 6
Serving Size: 1 slice

Ingredients
1 cup part skim ricotta
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup honey*
2 egg whites
1T coconut flour*
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 small plums, sliced
ground ginger
Steps
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Combine ricotta through vanilla extract in a food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy.
3. Lightly mist an 8×8 pie pan with oil. Pour ricotta mixture into pan and top with sliced plums. Sprinkle with ginger, if desired.
4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until pie is set on the edges and slightly jiggles in the center. Allow to cool completely at room temperature and then refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight before serving. Slice into 6 wedges and serve.

With less than 200 calories and 9 grams of protein. this dessert is more than just dessert. Serve it at breakfast if you so choose.

I personally like dessert for breakfast so that’s what I did … with a cup of coffee and an egg on whole wheat toast to balance out the meal.
