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

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!

This is a delicious way to cook with Ricotta and gives you an lovely crustless “pie”.  Low carb  and gluten fre 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!
