Luscious Amaretto Ricotta With Berries (Low Fat)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

Simple, but delicious, this is all about the ricotta. This is a low fat version of a Bon Appetit recipe that also included cream cheese, but not Amaretto. This ricotta is also good with peaches and crushed Amaretti cookies. Includes 30 minute stand time for the fruit. Each serving (based on two people) contains 3.5 grams of fat, and 1.5 grams of saturated fat (calculated from ingredient labels).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine berries with lemon juice and sugar. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. This will allow a syrup to develop.
  2. Mix ricotta ingredients together. This may be done in a food processor, if a finer texture is desired.
  3. Serve berries over a scoop of the ricotta. Serving it in a martini or other decorative glass makes for a nice presentation.

wow this is great. I used only blackberries. But I'll try with other fruits another time. The ricotta mixture is so good that after I ate my serving (on the photo), I did more ricotta but to eat like that alone without fruits. I used more amaretto. Yummy! Thanks Maito :)

We loved this! I increased the fruit and also added blackberries to the mix. I skipped the amaretto - delish! Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again this summer!

OH BOY did we delight in this wonderful dessert dish. Added a little more amaretto and a tad more sugar into the ricotta but honestly it was just perfect! Luckily I had strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Not a bit was left! Thank you so much! ZWT4 Babes in Italy.
