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 sweetly had ricotta cheese 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!
