Sweet Ricotta and Berry Pie
⅓ cup Truvia or ⅔ cup Splenda Granulated
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
One, 15 ounce container POLLY-O original or part skim ricotta cheese (NO fat free as gums and starches turn the dish grainy)
½ cup fresh blackberries, raspberries or blueberries
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Using the blender, pulse the eggs, Truvia, milk, vanilla and ricotta until smooth. Pour filling into glass or ceramic pie plate that has been coated with vegetable non stick spray. Drop the berries decoratively into the custard.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the filling is slightly puffed at the edges, barely golden and just set - meaning it should be slightly jiggly in the center when you gently move the pie plate from side to side - a little soft in the center is desired. Remember that it is a custard and doesn't hard set as a cake would.
Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
DO NOT OVERBAKE.
This was a hit with my husband and some of his men from his life group. Best part it was sugar free and no bad carbs! Life style change recipe…
