Chocolate Ricotta

Chocolate Ricotta
Two 1/4-cup servings
This high-calcium "pudding" has the benefits of cocoa and cinnamon - and the flavor of Mexico. Experiment with different brands of ricotta - they have different textures and flavors.

Prep time: 10 minutes

1/2 cup lowfat ricotta cheese
2 tbsp mild honey
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

2. Scoop into small dessert dishes and serve.
