Sweet Ricotta Snack

Happy Friday!

This week has been insanely busy (in a good way!) but it literally feels like Monday was about 5 seconds ago…seriously where did the week go!?


Last night, I got home from work around 7:45pm and although I knew I would be hitting the hay relatively soon, I was hungry and in need of a little snack. ย We had some ricotta in the fridge leftover from my lasagna attempt, and I absolutely love the taste of ricotta so I thought I would get a little creative.

I had no idea if my kitchen experiment would even taste halfway decent…but it did!

The honey and cinnamon added the perfect touch of sweetness making this “snack” taste more like a treat or dessert! ย It was so simple, I am glad that I tried it out so next time I have a hankering for something sweet I can turn to this which is a little more substantial than a bowl of M&Ms (although M&Ms are pretty tasty too!)

  1. i’ve heard about using ricotta as a snack before but have never done so! this sounds perfect and reminds me of the snacks i make with plain cho.

  2. That looks so good! I love ricotta – any sort of cannoli-like cream makes for a perfect dessert. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for the link back to the nachos!

  3. I would NEVER think to put cinnamon and honey on ricotta cheese. I’m not even sure how I’d like it, but it is certainly an interesting idea. I know that some people also eat cottage cheese with fruit and other sweeter things.

      The ricotta is savory enough with a slightly salty hint (because it is cheesy!) that the combo has a delicious sweet and salty flavor ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Mmmm…this snack sounds delicious! I have all the ingredients too. I think I’ll be trying this out today! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Such a huge fan of ricotta cheese for a snack! You’ll have to add some nut butter next time ๐Ÿ™‚
