|My son isn't a fan of whipped cream, so instead I made a creamy delicious topping that's actually good for you out of yogurt and ricotta cheese (recipe below).|
Okay, now the recipe for my alternate topping, so named because the taste almost reminds me of cheesecake:
Easy-Peasy Not!Cheesecake Topping
1 c plain yogurt, drained
1 c confectioner’s sugar
1 c ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp (dash) cream of tartar
Blend together with a whisk or hand beater until soft peaks form. Spoon onto cooled pie. Chill for 2 hours until set. Also great on chunks of melon, ambrosia, blueberries, or other chilled summer fruit dishes.
