I want to like this more than I did. The flavor was great but the texture turned me off. Now, I'll take the blame because it was the ricotta I used. It was gritty and I really need to splurge on the good stuff that's smooth and expensive. So, If I were to make this again with a better quality ricotta, I'm sure I would give it at least 4 stars.

I also forgot to add the lemon zest. I don't think it made much difference but I can't say for sure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly coat 4 (4 ounce) ramekins with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together ricotta, egg yolks, 1 TBSP of sugar substitute, lemon zest, lemon extract and vanilla extracts.
  4. In another small bowl with an electric mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; approximately 2-3 minutes. Gradually add remaining 2 TBSP sugar substitute and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold egg whites into ricotta mixture; just until combined.
