Fresh bluberries and ricotta cheese

I have an abundance of both these food stuffs and am interested in what you would make with blueberries and a soft cheese..

Beth, this idea is from my South Beach Diet book. Makes one serving. If you are a skinny melink, use sugar instead of substitute.

Mix 1/2 cup ricotta with a little lemon zest, 1/4 teas vanilla and one packet of sugar substitute. Sprinkle with your blueberries (or mix in the berries) and chill.

Easy peasy and very good!

Yeah, Lee... I was going to say just spoon some ricotta into a bowl and top with the blueberries.

I have the South Beach Diet book and I've made this several times. It is soooo delicious. Sometimes I make it with just lemon zest and vanill, sometimes I make it for dessert, other times it's my evening snack. I use whole milk ricotta instead of skim and I top ricotta with blueberries. I sweeten the blueberries with a little Splenda. Very low calorie and sooo very good. I have also used orange zest and a little o.j. squeezed into it then mix.

My first thought - make blintzes with blueberry topping. yum!

or, if you're daring, make a little dessert lasagna (make it in an 8x8 pan).

Definitely Blueberry cheesecake. Sweeten the ricotta, maybe blend with some cream cheese, graham cracker crust.

Blueberries in a pot, add a little water and some sugar, cook the berries down a bit, top the ricotta/cream cheese mixture....
