Ricotta Mousse – Instant Single Serve Dessert


Have you ever had cravings for a delicious (and healthy) dessert, but had no desire to bustle about for hours in the kitchen, baking it? It happens to me all the time☺ My solution is this wonderful mousse made from ricotta cheese and yogurt. The ricotta mousse is made in no time, it doesn’t need to be chilled, it’s ready to eat instantly, it is delicious – and this dessert is made only for you! You can double (or better triple) the ingredients and make several servings at a time as the mousse can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple days.


By tradition, here are some nutrition facts – a single serving contains 23% of recommended daily value of calcium, 20% DV of protein, 15% DV of fiber. Sounds delicious and healthy! This ricotta mousse can be used as a nice alternative to your regular breakfast, and also lunch and dinner 😉 Jokes aside, this ricotta mousse will keep you satisfied for hours, with only 184 calories per serving consumed.

Bon Appétit!

Ricotta cheese, fat free – ¼ cup
Plain yogurt, fat free – 2 tbsp
Peanut butter – 1 tbsp*
Agave nectar – 1 tbsp
Cereal – 2 tbsp
(optional) Cereal – 1 tsp for serving**

* I used Better’n peanut butter which contains twice less calories than a regular one
** Use your favorite cereal – mine is Kashi GoLean.


1. In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients until completely smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
2. Serve as is, or sprinkle 1 tbsp of crushed cereal over the mousse.

Your perfect mousse is ready! Enjoy ☺

    Right now it looks like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

      Hi Finn,

      Sure, just replace it with your favorite sweetener – sugar, maple syrup, stevia, honey, etc.

    This sounds delicious! Do you think it would work if I substitute nutella for the peanut butter, for nights when I have chocolate cravings? :)

    What an easy dessert! It’s always nice to whip up a single serving treat. I bet it would be good with a little cocoa powder too…chocolate and peanut butter :)
