This Cheesy Chocolate Pie is one of the many favourite dietic desserts which deliciously combine both chocolate and rich ricotta cheese. No sugar is used here, unlike the usual chocolate dessert recipes, so you can help yourself to as many slices as you wish.
Ingredients for Filling:
- 1 packet Gelatine Powder; unflavoured
- 1 cup Low Fat Ricotta Cheese
- 10 packets Sugar Substitute
- 1 packet Low–Calorie Whipped Topping
- 1 1/3 cups Skimmed Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1 tsp Coffee Essence
- 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
Ingredients for Graham Cracker Crust:
- 1 1/3 cups Graham Cracker; crushed into crumbs
- 1/2 cup Unsalted Low Fat Butter; softened
To prepare crust, mix cracker crumbs with butter. Combine crumbs with diet margarine by cutting in softened margarine until mixture turns to coarse crumbs. Spread evenly and press firmly onto bottom of pie pan. Bake at 180°C for 10 minutes.
To prepare filling, blend cheese until smooth. Meanwhile, cook gelatine with 3/4 cup skimmed milk at low heat until gelatine dissolves. Add blended cheese into gelatine mixture. Add in remaining milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and coffee essences. Blend until smooth.
Add 8 packs of sugar substitute into cheese mixture. Blend well. Pour cheese mixture into pie crust and chill well for an hour.
