Lemon Zest Ricotta Creme Low Carb Dessert

Between running my own business and having a new puppy, I have not had a lot of time to be creative and make up my own low carb dessert recipes so I have been dusting off a couple low carb books and revisting some old favorites. This low carb dessert is favorite of my mom and when we have family dinners at her house, she sometimes makes this for her and I to eat instead of whatever everyone else is having. Straight out of "The South Beach Diet" recipes:

Lemon Zest Ricotta Creme

1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package sugar substitute

Mix together the ricotta, lemon zest, vanilla extract and sugar substitute in a dessert bowl. Served chilled.

Serves one, 7g carbohydrates
