Stevia Recipe - Ricotta Stevia Citrus Spread
This Stevia recipe is a simple way to enjoy the healthy benefits of a low calorie lifestyle through the use of Stevia. This is a versatile recipe which can be used on toast, bagels, biscuits, english muffins or any other bread. If you are trying to eat a low calorie, high protein diet, pair this cheese based low calorie spread with double protein bread for a high protein breakfast.
1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
1 packet of Stevia Sweetener (In this case I used Truvia Stevia Sweetener)
Zest of one Clementine Orange (Use a cheese grater to remove the outermost rind of the orange. It will be very fine. Gather the rind from the cheese grater and place this into the Ricotta Cheese.)
One very small sprinkle of salt.
During the holidays - add a sprinkle of nutmeg.
Blend all ingredients together just before serving.
For diabetics who cannot eat the orange, place the rest of the left over orange outside in one of the birdfeeders designed to hold fruit pieces for song birds.
