Orange Cheesecake Fruit Dip-With Ricotta Cheese

Healthy Orange Cheesecake Dip 11

Are you looking for a cheesy fruit dip without cream cheese?  This whipped ricotta cheese fruit dip is light, airy, and tastes exactly like cheesecake.  This dip tastes amazing with all fruit, animal crackers, or graham crackers.  This is the perfect fruit dip that will please both adults and kids, and is the perfect snack to serve at your next family get-together! 

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!

  1. I just wish someone who had tried it would come back to leave a comment 😉
    I don’t buy ricotta often so will have to remember to get some and give it a go. I always have oranges though!
    It does sound delicious.
