Notes

If you want to cut the fat calories down in this recipe, just use all non-fat ricotta cheese instead of the mascarpone ricotta blend. You can also reduce the sugar intake by a few grams using a sugar-free whipped topping. I love the Truwhip, it's my go-to whipped cream alternative because it does not contain hydrogenated oils. I definitely splurge on the real deal for special occasions.
