I am a sucker for a good cannoli.
Every so often I get a huge craving for a cannoli. And once I get something in my mind I want, I can’t stop thinking about it. I have been doing so good with eating right and going to the gym, I wasn’t going to let a
little craving for a cannoli blow it.
I love ricotta cheese. It is something I always have on hand. I love it for breakfast or a snack on bread drizzled with a little honey. The creamy texture of ricotta is perfect in so many sweet and savory dishes.
I recently created this recipe that has all the flavors of a cannoli with less guilt. This recipes uses low fat ricotta cheese that only has 50 calories per serving and 2 grams of fat. To the ricotta add a few spoonfuls of powdered sugar, a handful of mini chocolate chips, a splash of vanilla and you have the filling ready to go. Instead of using a cannoli shell, I use a small 6 inch soft taco shell that is rolled with the filling then quickly browned in the skillet. The end result is a fun little Cannoli Wrap that makes a tasty snack. I have even used a round cookie cutter and cut the shells even smaller to make mini wraps that are cute for the kids, or even as little desserts.Print
