  • 1/2 cup nonfat ricotta cheese, (4 ounces)

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  2. Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers. Place another layer of ladyfingers over the ricotta and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Drizzle with melted chocolate.

  1. What a great idea to use stevia, arrowroot and ricotta instead of mascarpone.
