Blueberry Ricotta and Mascarpone Cheesecake

Details

8 serves
1 hour 30 minutes

Notes

For a cheesecake that is lighter in texture than traditional cheesecake made with cream cheese, and just as easy to make, try this recipe! We’ve swapped Ricotta for cream cheese, which has 1/3 the fat, and double the protein per 100g.

*Allow for 2 hours’ chill time after baking.
