Hi, I'm Randy Rabney of the Conscious Plate. I'm a chef, a coach, and an expert on teaching people how to easily eat real food on a regular basis. And this is how to make a ricotta cheese and fruit mock cheesecake. So I love to cook but I really don't like to bake. But occasionally I do want dessert. And today I'm going to show how to make something that is so simple and so delicious it doesn't even require cooking or baking. It just requires some assembling. So lets get started. In this bowl I have ricotta cheese. And I like to use fresh ricotta when I can get it. Ricotta is a mild cheese, it's very smooth and creamy. And has a natural sweetness to it. To the ricotta, I'm going to add some organic raspberry fruit spread. It's a puree of raspberries that's been sweetened with fruit juice. And now I'm just going to mix the two together. And as I go I'll decide whether I want some more fruit in there or not. This actually looks pretty perfect to me. So now let me show you how I like to serve it. I like to serve it in this martini glass. It makes it kind of festive and pretty. And I just spoon it into the glass. And this is that creamy ricotta cheese cake consistency. Now for me, I could stop right here. I love it like this. But some people like a little texture. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take a small piece of an organic graham cracker. I'm going to crumble it up and this is just going to mimic a cheesecake crust. And then the other thing that I like to do for texture is I like to add some walnuts. And I crumble these up as well. Is it possible to make a dessert that's any easier then this? Sweet, creamy, and delicious with just enough texture. I'm Randy Rabney from the Conscious Plate. And this is how to make a ricotta cheese and fruit mock cheesecake.
