  • fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries or mixed berries (defrosted)
  • Real light whipped cream in the can

In a large bowl, whisk together ricotta cheese, mascarpone cheese and almond milk until smooth.

Add Power Crunch Vanilla Crème Proto Whey Protein Powder, pure vanilla, agave nectar and sea salt and continue whisking until very smooth.

Cheesecake Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Cheesecake Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
