Orange Cheesecake Fruit Dip-With Ricotta Cheese

Healthy Orange Cheesecake Dip 11

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!
