Because part-skim ricotta cheese has about half the fat and calories of cream cheese, it makes a healthy base for this simple raspberry dip recipe. Use as a dip for fresh fruit or spread on toast, muffins or crostini.
Blend ricotta, yogurt, jam and vanilla with a wire wisk until smooth. Stir in raspberries to blend, leaving some pieces of berries visible. Transfer to a covered container and refrigerate until well chilled.
Use as a dip for sliced bananas, apples or peaches, or spread on bagels, bruschetta or whole grain muffins.
