A friend told me about how she mixes vanilla and sugar in ricotta cheese- and that it tastes exactly like cheesecake! I love ricotta cheese! I always have to sneak a spoonful of it when I make lasagna. I have never had ricotta cheese in a sweet way before, but this orange cheesecake dip turned out AH mazing!
This cheesecake dip was such a hit with the fam. It’s not heavy like cream cheese dips, but had much more creaminess than yogurt based dips. I can’t believe it took me so long to try this!
This can be a wonderful healthier appetizer to share with your friends and family during the holidays!
Orange Cheesecake Fruit Dip
1 8 ounce container of Ricotta cheese
juice and zest from one small orange

I loved this ricotta fruit dip! Now, I really want to try ricotta with other flavors!
