Lemon and Lime Ricotta Pie

A baked riccotta pie flavoured with citrus and decorated with berries making this a light and healthy dessert.

This is a delicious way to cook with Ricotta and gives you an lovely crustless “pie”.  Low carb delight for dessert!  It is a lovely change to a cheesecake and I like to serve it with berries on the top.  Mainly because I love the flavour combination of zesty citrus with berries.  Yum!

I used lemon and lime for the flavours of this crustless pie but you could try it with orange too…or add a spice or two?  Go crazy and make it your own! I love it when readers play around and create something delicious!

INGREDIENTS

1 15oz tub of ricotta cheese

3 eggs

Juice and zest of one lime and one lemon

2/3 cup erthyritol (or sugar subsitute of your choice)

1/2 tspn vanilla essence

pinch of salt

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180F/350F degrees.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Whisk the egg whites until firm.
  • Combine the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Fold in the egg whites
  • Line a baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for 25 minutes until firm and golden on top.
  • Chill for at least 90 minutes and serve with berries of choice on top. (optional).
  • Eat and enjoy!

    This sounds delicious but how many carbs per serving?

      I’ve updated the recipe with the nutritional detail Harriet. The net carbs are 3g per serving (based on 8 slices in total).
