Notes: Use an Oster® Hand Mixer to make the delicious filling of lowfat ricotta, orange and chocolate for this Italian classic. Fill ready-made cannoli shells or top almond cookies and experience la dolce vita.
- 1 package cannoli shells or Italian almond cookies
- 1 cup lowfat ricotta
- 2 tbsp orange juice
- 1/2 tsp orange zest
- 3 tbsp superfine sugar
- 3 oz bittersweet chocolate
- Combine ricotta, orange juice, zest and sugar. Leave 1/3 of chocolate aside. Chop the 2/3 of chocolate and add to ricotta mixture. Pour filling into shells until just full and grate remaining chocoate over tops and ends of cannoli.
If using the almond cookies, top each one with one small spoonful of mixture and top with grated chocolate.
